Real Madrid are not dead yet! Zidane’s side came through their most important game of the season with a 3-1 victory against Paris Saint Germain which keeps them on track for a third Champions League title in a row! After a poor season in their terms, this was a must win match, but they went behind to a strike from Rabiot with just over half an hour gone. Ronaldo levelled the scores from the penalty spot after Kroos was fouled in the area shortly before the break however, and two goals in the last ten minutes from Ronaldo and Marcelo, both from Marco Asensio assists, gave them a vital win.
