By: Bisola Bello March 7, 2018

European champions Real Madrid qualified for the  Champions League quarter-finals after they beat Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain at Parc des Princes in a 2-1 game.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first leg at home, which Real won 3-1, and he headed in from Lucas Vazquez’s cross to extend Real’s lead in France.

PSG had midfielder Marco Verratti sent off for two bookable offences, before Edinson Cavani pulled a goal back.

But Casemiro’s heavily deflected strike sealed Real’s victory.

PSG  who played without injured forward Neymar are 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.


Real are now into the Champions League quarter-finals for an eighth successive season and remain on course for a third title in a row.
