Kylian Mbappé, that was the very bad news for Real in the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, was fit in time and completed the dream tower with Lionel Messi and Neymar again. The world champion had quickly dangerous degrees through its explosiveness, his first goal (34.) was canceled as a further (54th) because of a distance position.
Once he slammed regularly into the short goalkeeper corner (39.), Real defender David Alaba had delivered the long corner for Thibaut Courtois. Benzema (62.) first achieved the flattering compensation after a stark mistake of the Parisian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Then Benzema, who was no longer able to keep, two more results (76./78.). For PSG and his catari investors, the pursuit of the title remains unfulfilled.
PSG defensively prone
Paris was superior, had much more possession of the possession, but at the same time remained delayed. Especially Benzema knew that again and again to use good opportunities – for example, he headed after a flank of the last battered 2014 world champion Toni Kroos just past the gate (37.).
The real resistance was tinkered by the residue, which was made of great pressure therefore only after the 1: 1. MBappé, however, remained a constant danger in the penalty area of the hosts, which have been sought great interest in a commitment of the exceptional facility for months. He was stuck by Benzema this time.
