Commentary
  • 90'

    Full time at the Santiago Bernabeu and Real Madrid have come away with a 3-1 victory after a Ronaldo brace and a third from Marcelo followed Rabiots opener. Deserved win for the hosts as they go into the second leg as favourites.

  • 90'

    Yellow card for Meunier for a cynical foul on Asensio as the Spanish youngster look to run past his marker to collect a pass.

  • 86'

    GOAL! Marcelo and Asensio link up well as the Spaniard is played wide by the Brazilian before returning a low cross towards him at the near post and he passes the ball into the near bottom corner. 3-1.

  • 84'

    Substitution for PSG as Lo Celso is replaced by Draxler.

  • 83'

    GOAL! Real take the lead after Modric picked up the loose ball in midfield before playing it wide for Asensio, who looked to cross low across the box. The cross takes a deflection and Areola pushes it away as far as Ronaldo who adjusts well to finish. 2-1

  • 80'

    Bale does brilliantly to get in behind the PSG defence and towards the right side byline. Areola closes him down and the Welshman looks to cut the ball across for Ronaldo, but PSG intercept and clear for a corner.

  • 79'

    Double substitution for Real as Casemiro and Isco come off to be replaced Asensio and Vasquez.

  • 78'

    Yellow card for Nacho for a professional foul in midfield on Neymar as the Brazilian looked to break into space.

  • 77'

    CLOSE! Neymar bursts forward before laying the ball off to his left for Berchiche to fire a cross low across the face of goal. Mbappe and Dani Alves both attempt to throw their bodies at it, with the latter whiskers away from getting a touch.

  • 74'

    CLOSE! PSG have a corner and look to drive the ball into the area. Real fail to clear and the balls drops in the box for Kimpembe to strike at goal, but Ramos does brilliantly to get in the way and make a block.

  • 71'

    Neymar once again produces a brilliant run but his pass towards Dani Alves is slightly overhit. The Brazilian manages to recover the ball but his cross into the area is easily cleared and the chance is gone.

  • 68'

    Substitution for Real Madrid as Bale comes on to replace Benzema.

  • 66'

    Substitution for PSG as Meunier comes on to replace Cavani.

  • 64'

    Its Ronaldo who once again stands over the free kick. He strikes it straight into the wall, however, before the ball goes out for a corner which comes to nothing in the end.

  • 62'

    Yellow card for Rabiot after he brought down Modric just outside the PSG area as he looked to burst towards the box.

  • 58'

    Real look to counter as Ronaldo is played toward the left byline. He strikes towards goal but his effort is deflected over. The corner into the box comes to nothing as PSG easily clear.

  • 55'

    CHANCE! Dani Alves is played into the box and holds the ball up on the byline before looking to cut back for his teammates. The ball reaches Rabiot on the edge of the box and he strikes powerfully but Ramos gets in the way to block.

  • 51'

    CHANCE! Neymar plays the ball across the box to Mbappe who has space in the area to strike at goal. He strikes low and hard, but Navas produces a great save to deny the Frenchman.

  • 49'

    Much like in the first half, Real have started the second period well. They've looked to get forward down the wings and have delivered some dangerous balls into the box, but nobody has been on hand to finish.

  • 46'

    We're back underway for the second half with neither side making any changes at the break.

  • 45'

    Half time at the Santiago Bernabeu and it's all square at the break with the score at 1-1. PSG took the lead after Rabiot scored when entering the box late from midfield, before Ronaldo was on hand to score a penalty late in the half.

  • 45'

    GOAL! Who else but Ronaldo would step up to take the penalty. The Portuguese forward strikes the ball with power towards the left bottom corner and Areola can't get a hand to it even though he went the right way. 1-1.

  • 44'

    PENALTY! Real take another corner short before Kroos looks to burst towards the box. He's pulled back by Lo Celso and goes down, with the referee obliging and pointing to the spot.

  • 43'

    Real look to build play from the back but aren't able to progress with PSG holding shape brilliantly in midfield. The hosts eventually get frustrated as Varane shoots well wide from range.

  • 39'

    CHANCE! PSG burst towards the box through Neymar before he looks to find Cavani in the centre. The Uruguayan take the ball in well before turning and shooting, but Casemiro denies him with a vital block.

  • 37'

    CHANCE! Berchiche finds himself in a bit of trouble at the back and Ronaldo does well to intercept his pass before turning into the box and striking towards goal. He strikes it with power but it goes a few yards over.

  • 33'

    GOAL! PSG take the lead after Mbappe looked to cross towards his forward partners into the box, before the ball was deflected towards the edge of the box where Rabiot picked up the pieces to fire the ball home. 0-1.

  • 32'

    Yellow card for Isco after he cynically barged down his man with a late challenge in midfield.

  • 31'

    Brilliant from Neymar as the Brazilian skips past a couple men when coming in-field from the left flank. He gets to the edge of the box and has the space to strike at goal, but he duffs the effort and it rolls into the hands of Navas.

  • 29'

    CHANCE! Ronaldo is through for Madrid after a brilliant pass across field from Marcelo as Madrid looked to counter. Areola comes out to close down Ronaldo and does brilliantly to spread himself and save with his head.

  • 26'

    CLOSE! Ronaldo stands over the ball and looks to strike powerfully towards the top corner on the side of the goal not protected by the wall, but he can't quite keep it down as the ball goes a yard or two over the bar.

  • 25'

    Yellow card for Lo Celso after he brought down Isco on the edge of the box as the Spaniard burst towards the box after winning the ball off of Verratti.

  • 23'

    No real chances to speak of as yet with neither keeper being tested. Real have looked the better of the two sides with PSG unable to get Cavani into the game as they look to go forward.

  • 19'

    Some brilliant defending by Dani Alves on a couple of occasions as he manages to rise high and beat Ronaldo to two crosses as Real looked to build patiently before crossing towards the back post.

  • 15'

    It's the first yellow card of the game as Neymar goes into the referees book for a challenge from behind on Nacho.

  • 14'

    CHANCE! Dani Alves does brilliantly to play a ball over the top to find Neymar in the box. He could head at goal, but decides to attempt to chest the ball down before shooting wide, before the referee penalized Neymar for hand ball.

  • 11'

    We have an extended break in play as Marcelo receives treatment for what looks to be a shoulder injury. He looks to be in pain but will continue to play on.

  • 9'

    CHANCE! Much like Ronaldo's effort from earlier, Berchiche is played into the channel and decides to shoot from a wide angle but his effort goes wide of the far post.

  • 6'

    SAVE! Real take a corner short before it reaches Kroos on the edge of the box and he attempts to curl a shot towards the far corner. Areola saves but he parries it towards the middle of the box and Marquinhos clears just wide of the post.

  • 4'

    It's been a high tempo start with both sides looking to get forward and Real having a penalty appeal turned away after Kroos went down. Ronaldo is played into the channel and attempts to shoot from a tight angle but it goes wide.

  • 1'

    We're underway at the Santiago Bernabeu!
