Real Madrid 2-2 PSG: Visitors' late show cancels out Benzema brace









83' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! SARABIA EQUALISES WITH A STUNNER!!! 2-2!!! The game turns on its head in a matter of minutes. The French champions find themselves level courtesy of a super strike from Sarabia. He latches on to a loose ball in the box from Bernat's deflected cross. There's still work to do, but he belts his left-footed strike on the half-volley into the top corner. 

81' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! MBAPPE KEEPS THE GAME ALIVE!!! 2-1!!! PSG are back in the contest in a flash as Mbappe seizes on a mistake from Varane to tap home. Sarabia's cross causes all sorts of problems for Varane and Courtois as neither man takes responsibility. Mbappe follow the ball in to notch a simple goal.

79' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! BENZEMA ICES THE GAME!!!! 2-0 MADRID!!! The Frenchman notches his second of the contest with a well-placed header from close range. Marcelo collects a lay-off from Isco and floats a cross to the back post. Benzema rises to direct his header downwards away from Navas into the bottom-left corner. A fine finish from the forward. 

46' SAVE! Navas denies Madrid once again. The home side raid down the left through Marcelo and he cuts a cross to the back post for Benzema to strike. He sends his attempt low towards the net, but Navas gets across to make the vital block.


45' + 3' HALF-TIME: REAL MADRID 1-0 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
41' SAVE! Navas is inspired this evening against his former club. Kroos rolls the ball into the left inside channel for Marcelo to strike. He sends a powerful low strike towards the middle of the net, but Navas reacts to make the stop before PSG clear the danger.

32' SAVE! Courtois has to launch himself to his right to deny Verratti from distance. The Italian connects well with his strike, but the Madrid keeper watches it all the way to make the stop.


29' The visitors finally get their foot on the ball to stem the tide of pressure. They need to get a foothold in the game amid a strong start from Madrid.
27' SAVE! Benzema has space to pull the trigger on the edge of the box, but slides a pass to his right for Kroos. The German strikes at goal with the outside of his right foot, bringing out a fine save from Navas diving to his left.
17' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! BENZEMA CONVERTS FROM CLOSE RANGE!! 1-0 MADRID!!! The home side break the deadlock after cutting open the PSG defence with a slick attacking move. Valverde and Carvajal combine with a neat one-two down the right flank. Valverde sends a low cross towards Isco in the box and the Spaniard sidefoots towards goal. His effort hits the post, but Benzema is in the right place at the time to knock home the rebound.


15' CHANCE! Kroos creates half-a-yard of space on the edge of the box and he goes for a strike on his right foot, only to blast his effort inches over the bar.
12' OVER! Mbappe makes a neat turn down the right flank and he hangs a cross deep to the back post for Icardi, but the Argentine can only glance his header over the bar.

3' Meunier bursts forward from the back and tries to slide a throughball into the path of Mbappe, but the pass is a tad underhit and the forward cannot take it in stride. He is forced out to the right flank, although he does win a free-kick from Ramos in the process.
2' Di Maria has space on the left to send an early cross into the box, but Ramos reads the danger to head clear. Gueye tries to collect to force an effort at goal, only to see his strike deflected away.
1' We're underway at the Bernabeu.
