Real Madrid sealed their place in the Champions League last 16 with a narrow home victory over Paris St-Germain. The win would be what football analyst will call a gift because PSG were the better team in every department during the game and yes, Real Madrid were just very very lucky.
Nacho Fernandez scored just two minutes after coming on to replace the injured Marcelo but PSG had their chances.
Adrien Rabiot struck a post, Edinson Cavani had a shot cleared off the line and Angel Di Maria hit the bar with an 89th-minute free-kick as Real hung on.
The win sees Rafael Benitez’s side move seven points clear of third-placed Shakhtar Donetsk with two games left.
