PSG 1-0 Real Madrid: Late Mbappe strike earns advantage in Round of 16

PSG defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 fixture, at the Parc de Princes. A remarkable finish from Kylian Mbappe in the 93rd minute gave the home team the lead. 

And with practically no time left for the Spanish giants to recover, Paris head into the next leg with an advantage. Since the away goals rule has been scrapped, the two clubs will have to be at their best to ensure that the game ends in 90 minutes, or else, we will have an extra time showdown. 

Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy started for Carlo Ancelotti despite being doubtful due to their injuries. However, they were unable to produce a big impact on the game despite being in the starting lineup.

One of the big moments from the game involved Lionel Messi, who had a chance to give PSG an extra boost from the penalty spot. However, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner had his penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois. 

But ultimately, it would not matter in the context of the game since PSG won the tie. They were on the front foot for the majority of the game, and barely allowed Real Madrid to grow into the game. To substantiate how dominant the French side were, Real Madrid had no shots on target throughout the game. On the other hand, 8 of the home team’s 21 efforts were at goal. 

The game was on its way to being called at 0-0. And, it took a moment of brilliance from Kylian Mbappe to break the deadlock.
