The most talked about match of this week, PSG vs Real Madrid ended in a 0-0 draw as both teams couldn’t break the deadlock. The score doesn’t tell the whole story though, as the match in itself was intense and of a very high quality.
PSG kept more of the ball, as Real looked to counter-attack whenever possible. Madrid made the better chances throughout the match, and looked deadly on the counter. PSG tried a late flurry, but were unable to break a resilient Real Madrid defence, a defence which has only conceded two goals in 11 games in all competitions.
Here are the five major talking points from the match :
1) Angel di Maria Against Real Madrid
This match was special for the Argentine winger Angel di Maria, as he was playing against his former club Real Madrid for the first time since leaving them. Di Maria moved to United around 18 months ago after helping Real win the La Decima.
But after having a disappointing first season at United, Di Maria moved to the French champions. Di Maria had a relatively quiet game, as he showed glimpses of quality. He was later substituted by the Brazilian winger Lucas.
