PSG lacked experience and maturity in UCL loss to Real - Marquinhos

PSG fans

Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo heads the ball and scored a goal despite Paris Saint-Germain's French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola during the UEFA Champions League football match Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid, on Wednesday at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. We know Real Madrid's experience, but we didn't do enough to win tonight. They deserved to go through.

Edinson Cavani's rebounded effort gave 10-man PSG faint hope of a belated comeback but Casemiro's deflected goal at the other end, coming after Marco Verratti was sent off for the hosts, secured Real's passage into the last eight.

Monaco were knocked out in the group stage this season, but reached the semi-finals last term and the quarter-finals two years earlier, with Jardim highlighting his side's accomplishments as PSG and Unai Emery come under pressure.

This was CR7's 118th goal in Champions League and 102nd alone for Los Blancos.

Asensio raced down the left wing, turned infield and slipped a brilliant throughball to Vazquez, whose clipped cross was headed down and into the net by Ronaldo at the far post.

For the French club that place they crave is among Europe's elite, not being excluded from it. To add insult to injury, Neymar, whose absence, without a doubt, made it hard for the PSG to secure the win, reportedly wants to leave the club.

"We tried everything, but Real deserve congratulations". On this evidence, and last season's humiliation at the hands of Barcelona, PSG remains a club more hopeful than convincing.

"It's certain we will continue and with patience we will build a team which can win in the future", he said. But it's a process. Despite boasting the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Raul, Luis Figo, Iker Casillas, Roberto Carlos and David Beckham at one time, Real were regularly crashing out of Europe at the first knockout round after 2003 because they simply didn't know how to play as a team.

Midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who played a part in Real's second goal through Casemiro with a failed clearance, felt that the tie was lost in Spain during the first leg at Santiago Bernabeu and not in the return. We believed before and during the match.

Draxler also criticised Emery's tactical decisions, implying that his side were too conservative in their approach to the game.
