Mbappe schools Courtois with a delightful bit of skill and finds the back of the net, but he is clearly offside. Still just 1-0. Pretty much as PSG would have wanted this second half to start. Aside from Mbappe being called offside again, they look the most likely to score again.
1-0 to the visitors! Mbappe gets loose down the left and beats Courtois with a fine hit! Neymar played him through, and Mbappe did the rest with a hard, low effort. It’s great combining from Neymar and Messi in the box, and the Argentine comes close, lifting it over Courtois but not on frame. Closer!
Not the start the visitors wanted. Despite a few openings, Donnarumma has already come up big to deny Benzema. Pochettino’s starting XI under scrutiny.
A lose ball falls to Benzema at the corner of the box, and he tries to pick out the back post, but Donnarumma just gets a finger on it to push it wide! An absolutely brilliant stop!
It’s another chance from Mbappe down the left, firing near post on a tight angle with Courtois denying him well. PSG growing into the game now after Real’s encouraging start.
