Champions League

The Blancos needed inspiration from somewhere at that point after seeing Kylian Mbappe double PSG’s aggregate advantage, with a French forward hauling them back into the tie before going on to seal a 3-2 overall success and a place in the quarter-finals.

Benzema insisted that he did nothing wrong

Karim Benzema is adamant that the first effort in he recorded when netting a stunning Champions League hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain deserved to stand, with the Real Madrid striker adamant that he did not foul Gianluigi Donnarumma when making the Italian goalkeeper pay for dwelling on the ball. The Blancos needed inspiration from somewhere at that point after seeing Kylian Mbappe double PSG’s aggregate advantage, with a French forward hauling them back into the tie before going on to seal a 3-2 overall success and a place in the quarter-finals. Questions have been asked of whether Benzema tripped Donnarumma when forcing him into a hurried clearance that fell to the feet of Vinicius Junior. Still, the Real frontman insists he did nothing wrong as an Italian shot-stopper gifted La Liga giants a lifeline.

The Los Blancos showed that they are a great club

Benzema told reporters when asked about an incident on the hour mark that got his hat-trick heroics rolling: “The first goal? No, nothing. No foul. Just pressing. He should have cleared it. He waits and waits and loses the ball in the end.” The prolific 34-year-old added: “My greatest match in the Champions League? It was only a last-16 game, but personally, it is something exceptional. We must not give up in the Champions League, and we showed that we are a great club.” While Benzema is convinced that he merely forced Donnarumma into a mistake, those in the PSG camp were less than impressed with the performance of match officials at Santiago Bernabeu.

There was a foul on Donnarumma

Sporting director Leonardo was among those left fuming at the end, with the Brazilian telling reporters of a controversial incident that let Real back into the tie: “We dominated here and at home, and then, even if it’s not an excuse, there was a foul on Donnarumma. “It was difficult, and we got lost. But this situation changed our mindset and changed Real; we had difficulties managing after that. It was decisive. And when we are eliminated, it’s complicated. We have to accept our mistakes. But, once again, the decision on Donnarumma is not fair, the fault exists, and it is clear. It’s impossible not to consult the VAR. But I’m not looking for excuses.”

“We’ll have to see what we did wrong. We spent a lot of energy, and at 1-1, we had a lot less and then they scored two more goals in quick succession. It’s tough to live with, but we have to try to move forward.”
