Real Madrid are in to the quarter finals of the Champions League for the eighth year in a row after they beat Paris Saint Germain 1-2 on Tuesday! Zidane’s side were defending a 3-1 lead from the first leg, and some six minutes in to the second half Ronaldo got on the end of a Lucas Vázquez centre to head the opener pasr Areola. The locals were left with ten men when Verratti picked up a second booking for protesting, but soon afterwards Cavani made it all square following a series of deflections. Casemiro restored the lead however with a shot which looped in off a defender, and Vázquez and Ronaldo both hit the post near the end as Unai Emery’s team threw in the towel.
