PSG Full-Backs Rub Salt Into Real Madrid Wounds With Brilliant Late Counter-Attacking Goal

PSG Full-Backs Rub Salt Into Real Madrid Wounds With Brilliant Late Counter-Attacking Goal

PSG defenders Juan Bernat and Thomas Meunier fully took the mick out of Real Madrid with an exquisite late goal on the counter-attack.

In the 91st minute of their Champions League clash at Parc des Princes, both Paris defenders bombed forward in devastating style.

PSG led 2-0 as the game headed into injury time and most defenders around the world would've been content to see the game out and take the three points.

But Bernat and Meunier combined for a brilliant goal on the break to make it 3-0 to the French champions.

Right-back Meunier found himself the furthest man forward and waited for support to arrive.

It eventually came in the shape of left-back Bernat, and Meunier put it on a plate for 26-year-old defender.

But Bernat decided to chip the ball over the onrushing Thibaut Courtois back towards Meunier, who gratefully accepted the invitation and slotted home a third.

It put a seal on an emphatic victory for PSG to begin their group stage campaign and consigned Zinedine Zidane's men to harrowing defeat.

Real Madrid failed to register a single shot on target for the first time in 167 Champions League games dating back to the 2003-04 campaign.

Angel di Maria scored a first-half double against his former side to put PSG in the driving seat on the night before Meunier's third.

And PSG did it all without the suspended Neymar and injured Kylian Mbappe.

Could they finally win the Champions League this season?
