Fans on Twitter went crazy with the manner at which Hazard orchestrated the move but he left the pitch injured in the second half.

Madrid were the better side in the first half but there was a contentious moment towards the end of the first 45 minutes.

Thibaut Courtois was shown a red card after hacking down Mauro Icardi but after checking the VAR, the referee overturned his decision and awarded a free-kick to Marcelo.

The Brazilian defender was fouled by Idrissa Gueye in the build-up to the move and both the penalty and the red card were canceled.

Zinedine Zidane's men thought they were coasting to victory after Benzema headed home Marcelo's cross in the 79th minute.

But PSG scored two goals in three minutes from Kylian Mbappe and Pablo Sarabia to level the scores at 2-2.

Gareth Bale should have won it right at the death as his free-kick hit the post as PSG went on to claim the bragging rights and won the group ahead of their Spanish counterparts.
