It is always silly to call any team other than Real Madrid favourites in a Champions League match at the Santiago Bernabeu but that was the notion before this match. It was strengthened when Adrien Rabiot put PSG in front in the first half and Real Madrid were on the backfoot. But two Cristiano Ronaldo goals and a Marcelo beauty showed that Real Madrid despite their questionable league form, remain the force to beat in the Champions League. PSG still have a valuable away goal but this does look like an uphill struggle for them. Millions can’t buy you a big-game mentality after all.
