FT: Real Madrid (Marcelo[p]) 1-3 Paris Saint-Germain (Ikone, Meunier[2])
...
90' CLOSE! Mariano strikes a powerful shot from just outside the box which goes narrowly wide
...
89' PSG should have scored! Di Maria breaks with the ball and plays in Ben Arfa, but the Frenchman inexplicably dawdles on the ball and fails to get a shot on target
...
86' Meunier has been the standout player for PSG this match and some more good work on the right-hand side from the Belgian sees the ball reach Di Maria, but the RM defence fall back to scramble the ball away
...
83' The game is being played at a slow pace now, with PSG content to keep their 3-1 lead. The young RM side are trying desperately to win the ball back, but the Ligue 1 champions are giving a lesson in how to keep possession 
...
80' CHANCE! Meunier and Ben Arfa combine excellently but the young RM goalkeeper Yanez comes off the line quickly again to prevent Ben Arfa from getting in
...
78' Stambouli goes into the book for a cynical foul in the centre of the park
...
77' Asensio has looked particularly lively, while Odegaard has impressed in flashes. Enzo Zidane has shown some god touches in and around the box, but has struggled to get into the game in the last few minutes
...
75' The Real Madrid youngsters have really given a good account of themselves and Zidane will be happy with the display his young side have put in the second half
...
71' PSG make another four changes. Cavani, Rabiot, Lucas and Kurzawa are off, with Nkunku, Ben Arfa, Maxwell and Georgen coming on.
...
71' PSG are getting ready to make a couple of changes and it looks like Hatem Ben Arfa will be given a chance to display his considerable talent
...
68' CHANCE! It is just not Cavani's day today! The Uruguayan misses the target narrowly and kicks away the ball in frustration. Cavani will have a lot of responsibility this season with the departure of Zlatan
...
64' BLOCK! Another chance goes begging for Cavani! The Uruguayan was in a 1v1 situation, but the young RM defender Lienhart recovered brilliantly to make a crucial block
...
62' Kurzawa makes a dangerous run on the left hand side, but the RM defence recover just in time to deny PSG
...
60' PSG seemed to have backed off a little bit, but the Real Madrid youngsters are really making life difficult for PSG! The average age of the current RM side on the pitch is just 21!
...
57' SAVE! Some beautiful play by Odegaard sets up Asensio on the left-hand side. He curls in a spectacular left-footed effort which is saved brilliantly by Trapp
...
55' Like father, like son! Enzo Zidane shows some lovely skills and touches to set up Asensio whose shot goes narrowly wide. What a game this is turning out to be! Brilliant end to end stuff here
...
53' SAVE! Di Maria plays in a lovely chipped ball to Cavani, but the young goalkeeper Yanez comes off his line brilliantly to deny Cavani! The Uruguayan has had plenty of chances this game, and he will be hoping to put away one of them sooner rather than later
...
49' The RM youngsters are actually knocking about the ball pretty confidently and do not seem overawed by the occasion. Carvajal and Odegaard are the only players on the pitch who have actually played an official senior game for Madrid
...
48' It will be really interesting to see how the Real Madrid youngsters cope with their much more experienced PSG counterparts. I am particularly excited about watching Odegaard and Enzo Zidane.
...
Real Madrid have made 11 substitutions!

 The starting line-up is off, with Febar, M. Diaz, Lienhart, Hakimi, Tejero, Carvajal, Yanez, E. Zidane, Asensio, Llorente and Odegaard coming on.


...
46' We are off in the second half! Real Madrid get us underway
...
The big news coming in is ZIdane's son Enzo Zidane is coming on for Real Madrid. Also for PSG, Di Maria is coming on!
...
What a first half it has been! We will be back soon to keep you updated. Join us in about 10 minutes
...
HT Real Madrid 1-3 PSG
...
45' We have 3 minutes of added time
...
44' GOOOOOOAALLLLLLLL! Marcelo blasts the penalty into the top corner!

Real Madrid (Marcelo[P]) 1-3 PSG (Ikone, Meunier[2])
...
43' PENALTY for REAL MADRID! It is Isco again causing all the problems! The Spaniard tricks and turns in the box, and his cross is handeled by Aurier! No doubt in the penalty decision.

No CR7, no Bale. Who will take the penalty?
...
42' CLOSE! Isco looks bright here and his powerful shot takes a deflection to go inches wide
...
40' GOOOOAAALLL! Meunier scores again! This is unbelievable! The right-back is released on the right-hand flank after some good play by the PSG midfield. The Belgian tries to square the ball to Cavani, but he gets a lucky rebound from Casilla and he scoops it into an empty net!

Real Madrid 0-3 PSG (Ikone, Meunier[2])
...
37' PSG are absolutely dominating the game here, but it is to be expected as they have had more games in their legs than Real Madrid
...
35' GOOOOOOAALLLLLLLLL! What a thunderbolt from PSG's new signing Meunier! The Belgian unleashes a stunning left-footed shot from 20 yards out which gives Casilla no chance.

Real Madrid 0 - 2 PSG (Inoke, Meunier)
...
33' We are back!
...
Meanwhile, Kurzawa also was booked for a foul on Isco! Third yellow card of the night for PSG.

Did someone mention to PSG, that this is a friendly?
...
30' Hydration Break! The referee decides to give a breather for both the teams. They will have a 2 minute drinks break now
...
29' CAVANI should have SCORED! Some brilliant work by Lucas Moura on the right hand side sets up Cavani who somehow manages to stab his shot wide from 7 yards out.

BTW Cavani has a new hairstyle now, man bun and all! Trying to replace a certain someone who is at Manchester United now?
...
The atmosphere in the stadium is absolutely electric. Who says USA does not follow "soccer" (call it football already)
...
...
26' BLOCK! Varane makes a stunning block to deny Cavani! Ikone the opening goal scorer sets up Cavani inside the box, but the young Real Madrid defender flings himself in front of the ball to deny PSG their second goal
...
23' SHOT! Lucas Moura breaks on the right side and sends a cross which Cavani spectacularly tries to bicycle kick into the back of the net, however, the effort goes horribly wide.

It did entertain the crowd though
...
19' Madrid are seemingly finally getting into this game, with Danilo firing high and wide moments after Kovacic's chance.
...
18' KOVACIC HITS THE POST! Some intricate and intelligent play by Real Madrid sees space open up outside the box for Kovacic. The Croatian curls a right-footed effort which seemed destined for the bottom corner, but Trapp makes an excellent stop to push the ball onto the post!

What a game this is turning out to be!
...
14' Second yellow card of the night! Aurier goes into the book for a foul on Morata. The Spaniard is definitely causing some problems to the PSG defence. Arsenal fans, I reckon you should have just splashed the cash for this player!
...
11' SIDE NETTING! All eyes will be following Alvaro Morata this game, and the young Spaniard almost equalised, but his effort narrowly went wide into the side netting
...
10' Substitution! PSG are not going to risk Silva. He is replaced by Belgian Meunier
...
10' Bad news for PSG, their captain Thiago Silva seems to have injured himself in the challenge with Jese 
...
8' We have our game's first yellow card! Thiago Silva, the PSG skipper is given a yellow card for a late challenge on Jese Rodriguez
...
6' CLOSE! Madrid seem to have woken up after the early goal and Isco strikes a thunderous shot from 30 yards which narrowly goes wide
