The reigning European champions stunned the PSG of Neymar in the last 16, first-leg showdown with two goals in the final seven minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu from Ronaldo and Marcelo.Real had already suffered for large spells of Wednesday's match, before PSG collapsed defensively in the closing stages, unable to adjust after Zidane sent on Marco Asensio.Striker Asensio set up the two late goals, and Zidane will take plenty of credit for the impact his substitutions had on the game just when it looked as though PSG would leave the Spanish capital with the edge in the tie.Zidane, under pressure because of Real's indifferent domestic form, again saw the Champions League bring the best out of his team and Ronaldo.While Real are looking to win the European Cup for the third year running -- something no club has done since Bayern Munich in 1976 -- and the 13th time overall, PSG risk seeing their wait for a first Champions League crown go on.
