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!
