UCL: Ronaldo Sinks PSG With Brace
It was another record-breaking night as Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to help Real Madrid come from behind to record a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.
The first leg of the last-16 tie in the Champions League between Real Madrid and PSG was highly-anticipated and the game lived up to his billing.
There was a scare when Adrien Rabiot sent PSG into a 33rd-minute lead at the Bernabeu.
However, like the real champions they are, Madrid held their nerves to muster a comeback and then snatch victory.
A double from Ronaldo - including one from the penalty spot - and a late Marcelo effort saw the reigning champions turn things around in the Spanish capital ahead of their March 6 trip to Paris for the second leg.
Meanwhile, Wednesday’s outing was quite symbolic for Ronaldo as he scored his 100th Champions League goal for Real Madrid in that tie.
No player has achieved this goal-scoring feat.
