UEFA Champion’s League: How can Real Madrid make a Comeback in Leg 2?

Published Date:

UEFA Champions League has finally reached Top 16 stage with their final 16 teams.

The top 16 will be held under 2 legs to decide the final 8.

The Leg 1 of the Top 16 will take place on 15th of February. The Leg 2 of the top 16 will take place on 8th of March.

PSG clashed against Real Madrid in the first match of the Top 16 Leg 1 stage at the home ground of PSG in Paris.

Can Real Madrid make a Comeback?

The Match was just as thrilling as fans all over the World Expected it to be, not a single goal was scored till the game reached 90 minutes.

PSG were the more attacking side and Real Madrid shockingly not had a single shot at the target.

Mbappe was constantly firing shots at the goal but Thibaut Courtois was like impenetrable wall.

Messi too had chance to strike the first goal of the match at 60th minute mark when PSG earned a penalty but failed to capitalise it.

The game was reaching a thrilling end and it seemed like it may end in a draw until Mbappe ended the game with a jaw dropping last minute goal.

Mbappe’s goal not only penetrated the Madrid’s defence but also sealed the first goal of the match taking the tally to 1-0.

Real Madrid failed to level the score in the remaining time and PSG won the first leg of Top 16 of the Champion’s League.

The match didn’t go to Real Madrid’s way but their hopes are not dead yet, they can still make a huge comeback in the Leg 2.
