PSG 1-0 Real Madrid: Kylian Mbappe's late strike hands Parisians slender advantage



Match report as PSG beat Real Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie; Lionel 

Messi had earlier seen his penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois; the return leg is in Madrid on March 9 

Kylian Mbappe's injury-time strike saw PSG beat Real Madrid 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions 

League last-16 tie at the Parc des Princes. PSG had appeared to be heading for a frustrating goalless draw in the French capital after Lionel Messi saw his 62nd-minute penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois. The 

visitors' giant Belgian goalkeeper guessed correctly and dived low to his left to turn Messi's spot-kick behind for a corner in what looked like being the pivotal moment of the tie. All this after Mauricio 

Pochettino's side had dominated most of the clash, only for Mbappe to twice be denied by excellent 

Courtois stops in each half, before Messi was given the chance to break the deadlock from the spot after Dani Carvajal had foolishly lunged in on Mbappe in the box.
