UCL: Ronaldo Nets Again as Real Madrid Beat PSG

Paris (07, 2018): Iconic footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and mid-fielder Casemiro scored for Real Madrid as the holders won 2-1 away to a Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ronaldo had scored twice – including his 100th goal for Real in the competition – as they won 3-1 in the first leg in Spain last month, and his header early in the second half at the Parc des Princes effectively ended the French club’s hopes of progressing.Edinson Cavani equalised for PSG, but only after they had Marco Verratti sent off, and Casemiro’s late goal secured an ultimately comprehensive 5-2 aggregate victory for Zinedine Zidane’s side.

PSG never looked like turning the tie around in the absence of the injured Neymar, and it was a horribly flat way for them to exit the competition.As they limp out, Real’s dream of becoming the first team in more than 40 years to win three successive European Cups remains alive.

A year after their spectacular collapse against Barcelona in the last 16, when they were humiliated 6-1 away in the return after a stunning 4-0 win at home, PSG had hoped to produce a memorable comeback themselves this time.
