Benzema hat-trick sends PSG crashing from Champions League

Real Madrid have qualified to the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League after knocking out Paris Saint Germain (PSG) on Wednesday at the Santaigo Bernabeu Stadium.

The Parisians shot into the lead in the 39th minute through Kylian Mbappe’s sumptuous finish after being played through by Neymar.

Real captain Karim Benzema leveled parity in the 61st minute with a tidy finish.

The evergreen Frenchman made it 2-1 on the night after Luka Modric picked him out with a delightful pass.

The 34-year-old then completed his hat-trick moments later, netting an outrageous finish with the outside of the boot.

Real book their spot in the last eight, with PSG capitulating having led the tie 2-0 at one stage.

In the other game, Manchester City made sure of their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League but were unable to add to their 5-0 lead from the first leg as Pep Guardiola’s side played out a dull goalless draw with Sporting Lisbon at the Etihad.
