Zidane delighted with Real Madrid victory at PSG

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the mark as Real Madrid won 2-1 in Paris on Tuesday night.

Real moved into the Champions League quarter-finals as they beat Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain at Parc des Princes.

Ronaldo scored twice in the first leg at home, which Real won 3-1, and he headed in from Lucas Vazquez's cross to extend Real's lead in France.

PSG had midfielder Marco Verratti sent off for two bookable offences, before Edinson Cavani pulled a goal back.

But Casemiro's heavily deflected strike sealed Real's victory.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane stated: "Congratulate the players, they made a good and serious match from the beginning, it was important to make a game like that, we won at a very difficult field, also the first leg, we are satisfied and happy.

"The team is as always, having all available, I have chosen the first eleven, it has gone well, those who came in.

"We passed the tie and we are happy, we will try to continue this in the League."
