Real Madrid 3-1 PSG: 5 Talking Points
A brilliant game that ended with a surprise!
WHAT A GAME! Real Madrid and PSG might have gone into the game with contrasting forms but they were neck-to-neck for the first 75 minutes of the game.
However, once Asensio came on for Isco in the 79th minute, the game was all about Madrid. The Spaniard made sure that they were exploiting the weakness of PSG's defence and provided two assists in 9 minutes to win the game for Los Blancos.
On that note, here are the 5 talking points from the game:
#5 Interesting lineups by both teams
When the lineups came out, the fans of both teams were shocked. The Madrid fans were surprised to see Gareth Bale on the bench with Isco starting.
PSG, on the other hand, left Thiago Silva on the bench and that was a big blunder by Unai Emery. The Brazilian defender would have been brilliant against Karim Benzema and that would have helped Marquinhos and the full backs to concentrate on Cristiano Ronaldo and Isco.
Zidane's mistake of leaving out Bale might have cost them big time if it wasn't for Asensio's magic at the end.
