People are shocked how quickly Real Madrid vs PSG escalated

Goals

Real Madrid might have gone a goal down against PSG, and struggled for parts of their Champions League tie, but they’re not the back to back winners of the competition for nothing.

They came from the goal down to make it 3-1 by the end, after Cristiano Ronaldo equalised and then put them ahead, with Marcelo scoring the third and giving the La Liga side – who have been off the boil this season by their recent standards – a good lead ahead of the second leg at the start of March.

Given it’s the only thing they can win, Real Madrid fans were thrilled, and Twitter couldn’t believe the late goals.

Neymar

All eyes were on Neymar ahead of the game, with the star signing for PSG someone who was supposed to be the next big thing in football and someone who could win the Ballon d’Or after Ronaldo and Messi – but it wasn’t to be – in fact, far from it, with the PSG star lacking at best.

He was panned on Twitter, and all the Ronaldo fans were careful to make their thoughts clear – in fact, the only thing they may agree on with Barcelona fans is that Neymar made a mistake going to PSG and should have stayed at Barcelona.
