However, Ronaldo scored an equaliser nearing the half-time from the spot and a goal in the second-half to help his side secure a 3-1 lead in the first leg. Ronaldo had 16 goals from six season at Manchester United and he added another 101 nine seasons for the Madrid outfit.

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be a man on a mission, every time he takes the pitch for Real Madrid in the Champions League. We coped well, both with and without the ball.

While Real are looking to win the European Cup for the third year running - something no club has done since Bayern Munich in 1976 - and the 13th time overall, PSG risk seeing their wait for a first Champions League crown go on.

PSG are in danger of exiting the Champions League in the first knockout round for the second successive season.

Cementing his status as a Champions League great, Ronaldo is the competition's all-time top scorer with 117 goals and he doesn't seem to stop anytime soon.

PSG coach Unai Emery did no favour to his players by making a defensive subsitution in the 66th minute as Meunier came on at right-back to let Dani Alves move upfront and assist Neymar and Mbappe.

I'm happy with the way the team played. We have to be optimistic and positive for the match in Paris.

"It was a good evening, we completely deserved our victory".

The Portuguese forward scored a late close-range strike after his penalty had cancelled out Adrien Rabiot's opener at the end of a thrilling first half. The Spaniard believes his side should have had a penalty after Sergio Ramos' handball in the penalty box.

According to Marca, Real Madrid found their "pride" in order to "come back like a champion".

"We suffered a little against them due to the speed of their players but we recovered well. UEFA have to do something".
