Champions League: Mbappe Leads PSG Past Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappe was on target to hand PSG a slim 1-0 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of the second round clash in Paris.

The build-up was dominated with discussions about Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid and the World Cup winner didn’t disappoint.

PSG dominated possession from the blast of whistle but they couldn’t find a way past a resolute Real Madrid backline.

The first half ended goalless before the introduction of Neymar swung the tie in Real Madrid’s favour.

Lionel Messi missed from the spot as Courtois denied him by diving correctly.

The former Barcelona star tormented Real Madrid with his clever link up play.

Mbappe had the last laugh with superb finish following a good work from Neymar in the fourth minute of extra time to hand PSG a first leg win.

The second leg comes up on Wednesday, March 9 in Madrid.

In the other fixture, Manchester City recorded a 5-0 win over Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.
