Video: Paris Saint Germain 1 – 2 Real Madrid [UCL] Highlights 2017/18Video: Paris Saint Germain 1 – 2 Real Madrid [UCL] Highlights 2017/18. Cristiano Ronaldo kept up his record of scoring in every Champions League game this season to send Real Madrid into the last eight.

Real Madrid secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals as a 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday gave them a 5-2 aggregate victory.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s second-half header and a deflected strike from Casemiro were enough to keep the holders on track for a third trophy in a row, either side of a goal from Edinson Cavani.

PSG’s frustrations were compounded when Marco Verratti was sent off after picking up a second yellow card for dissent.Video: Paris Saint Germain 1 – 2 Real Madrid [UCL] Highlights 2017/18

Madrid seized the advantage in the tie with two late goals in their 3-1 first-leg win and they managed the clash at Parc des Princes in professional fashion, as PSG, without the injured Neymar, struggled for inspiration in the attacking third.

Zinedine Zidane somewhat surprisingly started Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez on the wings and the two combined to set up Ronaldo for the killer goal in the second half, as the Portugal star kept up his run of scoring in every game in this season’s competition.

Verratti’s dismissal ended any lingering hope of a comeback for PSG, with Casemiro sealing the win after Cavani’s equaliser, meaning their wait for a European crown goes on and the pressure on head coach Unai Emery will grow after a second consecutive last-16 exit.

Verratti’s foolish remonstrations with referee Felix Brych earned him a second yellow card 15 minutes later, but Cavani at least gave the boisterous PSG fans something to cheer when Di Maria’s diving header rebounded off Ramos and then the Uruguay striker before nestling into the net.

Benzema and Ronaldo each came close as space began to open up in the home side’s defence, but it was Casemiro who brought an end to PSG’s 100 per cent winning record at home this season, intercepting Adrien Rabiot’s poor clearance before seeing his shot deflect over Areola and in with 10 minutes remaining.
