PSG wins 1-0 against Real Madrid in the first leg of the ‘Champions’ round of 16

Paris Saint-Germain beat Real Madrid 1-0 in the discount this Tuesday in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions in the Parc des Princes.

A goal from Kylian Mbappé (90+4) put the Parisian team ahead for the second leg on March 9 at the Santiago Bernabéu, after a game in which Real Madrid could only resist to avoid a bigger win, as Thibaut Courtois saved a penalty from Lionel Messi (62).

The white team suffered on the grass of the Parc des Princes against an intense PSG, who pressed the exit of the meringues from above.

The Leo Messi-Kylian Mbappé connection worked and did a lot of damage down the left wing where the French winger ran, a real nightmare for Dani Carvajal.

Mbappé was able to put his team ahead by receiving a pass from Messi in the area, but lost one-on-one with goalkeeper Courtois (18).

The merengue team managed to get a little further out of their field in the last quarter of an hour of the first half, but always looking sideways at their back for fear of a quick start from Mbappé.

The Frenchman found himself again with a ball in the heart of the area, forcing Courtois to stretch to avoid the 1-0 (50).

The Belgian goalkeeper was one of the heroes of his team who he saved with a shot from Nuno Mendes (52) and another almost consecutive shot from Messi from the edge of the box (53).

The martyrdom to which Mbappé subjected Carvajal had its reward for the French team when the Spanish international knocked down the French star in the area causing a penalty, in which Courtois once again shone, stopping Messi’s shot (62).

The failure in the maximum penalty encouraged the meringues, who tried to go forward but with too many inaccuracies and without reaching real danger.

With Real Madrid on the ropes, Pochettino brought in Neymar for Di María to mount his gala attack in his attempt to pierce the merengue goal.

With the match practically over, Mbappé fired a cross shot under Courtois’s legs to make it 1-0 (90+4).
