Angel Di Maria Scores Twice Against Former Side Real Madrid In PSG Rout

Angel Di Maria Scores Twice Against Former Side Real Madrid In PSG Rout

Former Real Madrid star Angel di Maria heaped misery on his old team with a first-half double in PSG's rout.

The French champions romped past Zinedine Zidane's men in a 3-0 victory to begin their latest quest for European glory.

Di Maria, who left Los Blancos in 2014 after being the Man of the Match in that year's Champions League final for Real, for Manchester United was the difference maker.

First he beat Thibaut Courtois at the goalkeeper's near post before adding his second with a long range curling effort past the goalkeeper.

Real, who were knocked out of the last 16 by Ajax last season after winning the previous three titles in-a-row, had a reply ruled out by VAR.

Gareth Bale brilliant touch to knock a through ball over the defender before volleying it past Keylor Navas in the PSG goal, it looked like a stunning goal but unfortunately for the Welshman the ball hit his hand in the build up and VAR told the referee to overturn in.

Di Maria is making a habit of scoring against his former sides in Europe. Last season he scored against United in the last 16 at Old Trafford, before picking up a beer thrown at him by the home fans and sipping it in victory.

Thomas Meunier scored late on the counter-attack to complete a comprehensive victory for the French side.

Can this be PSG's year in the Champions League?
