Ronaldo ecstatic after match-winning display against PSG

The Portuguese star then turned the ball home from close range with seven minutes left before Marcelo secured what could turn out to be a decisive first-leg lead ahead of the return in Paris on March 6 and sent almost 80,000 home fans into raptures. "It is a good result and the team deserve to be congratulated", said the Frenchman after two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo - one a penalty - and a Marcelo strike secured their victory at the Santiago Bernabeu.

That goal meant Ronaldo became the first player to hit a century of goals for one team in Europe's elite club competition, with the Portugal global then putting his side ahead seven minutes from time.

Kroos talked up the importance of the Champions League, a competition the LaLiga giants have won the past two seasons.

Ronaldo, 32, twice made the gestures whilst looking at the stands.

"It was hard work, but in the end the boys enjoyed it", Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said after the club's first appearance in the knockout stage of the Champions League for nearly nine years.

PSG therefore have it all to do in the March 6 return in the French capital but Emery believes he saw enough in Wednesday's performance to suggest they can prevail.

Liverpool is the top-scoring side in the competition with 28 goals. We created chances but they weren't clear ones.

It started early with Sadio Mane's opener in the 25th minute, and by the 70th minute it was 4-0.

Zidane sent on Bale for Benzema and, with around 10 minutes left, he added more to his attack by replacing defensive midfielder Casemiro with forward Lucas Vazquez, while Asensio relieved Isco. The truth is that the lack of competitive games in France hinders them.

The home side showed promise after the break but was caught on a counterattack when Sa saved Firmino's effort, only to push the ball toward Mane's feet.

Then he chose to take off the clubs's all-time record goal-scorer, Edinson Cavani, in the second half, only to replace him with a right-back in Thomas Meunier.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah also scored, with Salah's goal showing perfectly how just everything went the English club's way. "I think we played better in the second half, we had our chances to score, but we made mistakes", he said.

Neymar has responded to Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League with a typically enigmatic post on social media. "He gave us extra mobility", Zidane said. "What more can I do?"
