PSG 1-2 Real Madrid: match report
Holders Real Madrid cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals with Cristiano Ronaldo's second-half goal helping them to a 2-1 victory at Paris St Germain on Tuesday as the 12-time European champions went through 5-2 on aggregate.
Ronaldo headed home seven minutes into the second half and Casemiro added a second 10 minutes from time against a toothless PSG, who were without their injured talisman Neymar and had Marco Verratti sent off for a second booking in the 66th minute.
Ronaldo scored for the ninth Champions League game in a row, matching Ruud van Nistelrooy's record in the competition, before PSG striker Edinson Cavani equalised with 19 minutes left, only for Casemiro to give Real victory at the Parc des Princes.
Zinedine Zidane's side, who are 15 points adrift of arch-rivals Barcelona in La Liga but aiming for their third straight Champions League crown, were solid throughout as the home side rarely threatened and fully deserved their win.

23' Casemiro wins a throw as Rabiot runs down the left.

Minute's silence for Davide Astori. Not very silence though, it has to be said.
Imagine what an early PSG goal would do?!
What an atmosphere! PSG did warn that the Parc des Princes would be boiling tonight. Seems to be just that. PSG fans in fine voice.
Antero Henrique was keen to stress the need for a referee "with an exceptional level" tonight. Brych is one of the best in the business.
We are ready. Teams head onto the field led by Felix Brych.
Hugs in the tunnale now. Navas and Ronaldo embrace. Ramos with a greeting for Thiago Silva.
The warm-ups are done and we are ready for actions. Debating who will win and I have abstained from voting because I don't have a clue! Rarely have I ever been so confused going into a game.
Ronaldo has never scored as many goals in as few games to start the year. He has 14 in 10 and is improving slowly but surely...
So, Zinedine Zidane has set out his stall by picking a side that has speed on the wings after saying that Real Madrid will have to suffer tonight. It seems that PSG will dominate much of possession and Real Madrid will work on the counter.
Real Madrid fans in Parc des Princes and ready for action.
33% of the teams that lost 3-1 in the first leg have progressed to the next round, which is 4 out of 12, including 3 of the last 4.

Casemiro has never been eliminated from the Champions League with Real Madrid. Three attempts and three trophies.
