The PSG dominated the lawn of Bernabeu Santiago but did not succeed to concretize this domination.
The Parisian aggressors used defenders from Madrid without ever finding any weakness of their opponents. Adrien Rabiot strucks a post, Edinson Cavani had a shot cleared off the line and Angel Di Maria hit the bar with the 89th-minute free-kick as Real hung on. The ownership of the ball was 56 percent in favor of the PSG in first half. Nevertheless, the Real Madrid took the advantage. Nacho Fernandez scored just two minutes before halftime. The PSG had a lack of realism, as Edinson Cavani had less success yesterday evening. This defeat marks a stop in the ambitious project of the PSG because some players found difficulties during the match.
Kevin Trapp not at his best
The guardian of the PSG has clearly a big share of responsibility in the defeat of the club yesterday evening. The German player made some first-class moves, like in the 81st minute on this Tony Kroos beautiful strike. Nevertheless we shall especially remember his big error on the only purpose of the match which gave the victory to the Real Madrid. The PSG had recruited him to progress and get closer to the biggest world clubs. From the beginning of the season Kevin Trapp took his place and left Salvatore Sirigu on the bench. A debatable choice in view of Kevin Trapp’s performances.
