Cristiano Ronaldo equaled Raul Gonzalez’s record set in 2002/2003 as Real Madrid beat PSG 2-1 to reach the quarter-final on a 5-2 aggregate despite the smoky atmosphere created by the Paris fans.
After a goalless first half which saw both Benzema and Mbappe miss key chances, Cristiano Ronaldo’s header gave the La Liga giants the lead in the 51st minute to equal Raul’s record of scoring in 9 straight matches in the Champions league.
Marco Verratti received a second yellow card for dissent but that didn’t deter the Parisiens as they soon equalized through Edinson Cavani before Casemiro gave Real Madrid the advantage off Ronaldo’s slight flick to send them to the quarters.
In Anfield, Liverpool played out a drab 0-0 draw with FC Porto even though they had a 5-0 advantage going into the tie.
