Angel Dimaria scored twice, along with Thomas Meunier as Paris Saint-Germain recorded an emphatic 3-0 victory over Real Madrid.
Despite being without their starting front three of Kylian Mbappe (injured), Neymar Jr. (suspended) and Edison Cavani (injured), PSG still had a relatively easy Uefa champios league night out in Paris as Real posed little or no threat to their 3-goal win.
Ex Real Madrid star, Angel Di Maria opened scoring for Le Parisiens in the 14th minute, after he dispatched a shot past Courtois from a tight angle in the box.
The Argentine midfielder doubled PSG’s lead in the 33rd minute after Idrissa Gana Guay set him perfectly for a well timed shot for his second on the night.
Madrid thought they had pulled one back when Gareth Bale caught Keylor Navas out of position, but VAR reviews showed the ball hit the Welsh man’s hand before he scored.
Di Maria and Guay continued to dictate the pace of the game in the second and the Argentine almost got a hattrick had his lob shot not gone over the net.
Los Blancos had another goal ruled out. This time, from Karim Benzema after replays showed an offside Lucas Vazquez impeding Keylor Navas’ view of Benzema’s shot.
The Paris party climaxed in the 90th minute when Thomas Meunier was set on a counter attack with a pass from Di Maria, the Belgian got on a nice interchange with Bernat before cooly slotting home for 3-0.
A night to forget for Zidane and his men, who were completely outplayed and outclassed– with Neymar and Mbappe watching with amusement in the director’s section of the stands.
It will be Paris Saint-Germain’s first win against Real in their last six meetings.
