Real Madrid vs PSG 3-1 – Highlights & Goals Mp4 Free Video Download UEFA Champions League Goals Mp4 Download Video
Real Madrid has dealt with doubters for weeks and weeks, but on Wednesday, the reigning European kings showed that perhaps they’re not done just yet.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice, and Marcelo added a key late finish to give Real Madrid a come-from-behind 3-1 win over PSG to open their Champions League round of 16 series. The stakes are high for both clubs entering the round. Real Madrid has limped through the 2017-18 season, and the Champions League is the last remaining frontier it can realistically conquer this season.
Amid its struggles, a wholesale revamp has been speculated for the club, but it can quiet those shouts by advancing and eliminating big-spending PSG on the strength of established stars like Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. The Ligue 1 power has gone all in on establishing itself as a European champion, though, and it largely coasted through the group stage.
A first-leg knockout affair at the home of the two-time reigning champion required a different level, though, and summer signings Neymar and Kylian Mbappe weren’t able to provide the fireworks expected, with Adrien Rabiot the lone goalscorer for the Parisians. Real Madrid pressed early, and Ronaldo got his first chance in the third minute, whipping in a volley off the bounce from a tight angle but sending it beyond the far post.
PSG nearly gifted Real Madrid the lead a couple of minutes later. Toni Kroos had a clean look from 20 yards parried away by Alphonse Areola, but it hit right off Marquinhos, who narrowly missed hitting it into his own net.
