PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!  

FULLTIME, REAL MADRID 3 - 1 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

Cristiano Ronaldo's scored a brace, Marcelo ended a man-of-the-match performance with a superb goal, Marco Asensio just reiterated why he's such a delight to watch, while PSG paid for their bone-headedness at the back. For all of Neymar's gliding and dancing, they weren't much good when they really needed to be - with Varane and Ramos putting in their best performances of the season. 

Moral of the story: Never, ever, write off Real Madrid. 
...
93' Rabiot races down the left, plays in Neymar - and he blooters it high and handsome into the Madrid sky. 
...
92' Rabiot tries to thread through a ball to Neymar - but it's got way too much oomph on it. 
...
91' THREE MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON! Asensio once again looks to spring for'ard - and Meunier hacks him down. That's a yellow for the Belgian. 
...
90' Real Madrid race forward on one of their patented counters... Asensio plays it out to Ronaldo - and you know what's coming. A stepover, a body feint, and a shot... but the last bit is simply not good enough to trouble Areola
...
89' Neymar plays in Mbappe... he runs at Nacho, gets a lucky deflection and runs into the box - where his shot is straight at Navas. The corner is punched emphatically clear by the impressive Costa Rican. 
...
87' Write off Real Madrid at your own bloody peril
...
WOOOF! Asensio, again that young man - what a player he is - swings it in... Marcelo, in there, ahead of every man in white, leathers it in off his shin. Superb, superb, finish. Superb, superb goal. Marcelo's deserved that one. 
...
86' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MARCELOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
...
85' Emery finally takes off the disappointing Lo Celso and brings on Julian Draxler. 
...
Of course, it had to be him. Asensio surges forward, plays it out wide - it's initially cleared. but Modric plays him back in. The young man then passes it into the box, where Areola palms it out - Ronaldo's there, and knees it into the net. Nice little Pippo Inzaghi-esque finish there from the master
...
83' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! RONNAAALDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
...
82' Mbappe is released in behind the Madrid defence, but Marcelo does well to shepherd him out of danger initially, before winning a cheap foul off Alves
...
81' Oh, Asensio came on for Isco at the same time Vazquez did. I missed it because I simply couldn't believe that Zidane had taken his defensive shield out. 
...
80' Vazquez's first contribution is to play a neat little ball to Bale who surges into the box and wins a corner of Kimpembe. Kroos' delivery, though, is easily caught by Areola.  
...
79' Neymar skins three Madrid players in his own half, and offended on their behalf, Nacho takes him out. Yellow for Madrid's utility man.Zidane, meanwhile, takes off Casemiro - NO, REALLY - takes off Casemiro and brings on Lucas Vazquez. He wants this win. 
...
78' At the other end, Modric picks out Bale with a delicious cross. The Welshman plays it back in, but Ronaldo's shot is well blocked by Marquinhos. The corner leads to another corner - which is rubbish. 
...
76' OH WOOOOOOOW! WHAT A BALL IN YURI! The left-back runs behind Casemiro and Neymar finds him with a neat through-ball. With the freedom of Madrid's box at his disposal, he pings a ball out that juuuust  misses Dani Alves 
...
74' Mbappe tries to sell Ramos down the river with an imaginative piece of footwork - but the Madrid talisman is having none of that riff-raff. Blocked, cleared, and reset. 
...
73' WOOOF! WHAT A BLOCK, RAMOS! He loses out in the air to Marquinhos but with the ball dropping out to Kimpembe just four yards out and him smashing it at goal, the Madrid captain pulls off the most stunning block as he is half-falling, half-trying to get up
...
72' A hopeless Marcelo ball allows PSG to break at pace - Mbappe and Alves inexplicably slow it down - and it's just a corner. Should have been a lot more, but Varane is on his A-game here
...
71' Neymar glides past Toni Kroos, boots barely touching the ground, form barely visible for Kroos, but with Alves free out wide, dithers and dallies till the move peters out into non-existence. 
...
70' OH, MY! OH, MY! Meunier's passing has elevated PSG's attack already. He plays it to Mbappe, who lays it off to Dani Alves - who then plays a superb back-heel that causes all sorts of confusion in the Madrid box but just cant make it to its intended target, Neymar
...
67' OUCH! OUCH!  Neymar tries a crossfield pass and hits the referee so hard that his ear-piece falls out. He looks like he'll be okay. Ish. 
...
66' Meunier whips a superb ball into the box, but it's just got too much height on it for Neymar. Only if Cavani was on the pitch for that, eh, Unai? Madrid, meanwhile, take off Benzema for Bale
