UEFA Champions League Holders Real Madrid eased into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 2-1 win at 10-man Paris St Germain with Cristiano Ronaldo starring.
Cristiano Ronaldo ’s 12th goal in the competition and Casemiro’s late strike ensured Zinedine Zidane’s side progressed 5-2 on aggregate in the French capital on Tuesday evening.
Leading 3-1 from the first leg, Real never looked in danger against the sedate hosts despite Edinson Cavani’s fortunate second-half equalizer.
Zidane’s side put aside their LaLiga blues – they are 15 points behind arch-rivals Barcelona – to reach the quarter-finals of the competition they won last June.
Marco Verratti was sent off for PSG in the second half as their hopes of a maiden Champions League title ended.
They are also likely to face UEFA punishment after the game was briefly halted at the start of the second half because of flares from the home fans.
