PSG level Real Madrid Champions League Record

The Paris giants continue to find success in front of goal with Marquinhos providing the opening goal on Tuesday.

Paris Saint-Germain have equalled a Real Madrid record as the Ligue 1 side continued their goalscoring ways in Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final. 

After taking down Atalanta with a pair of late goals in their quarter-final clash, PSG were drawn against RB Leipzig, who also benefitted from a late goal in their triumph over Atletico Madrid in their quarter-final clash.

PSG wasted little time in Tuesday’s semi-final clash, scoring just 13 minutes in after creating several early chances.

After seeing Neymar fire the first chance of the game off the post, PSG took the lead from a set-piece via a goal from Marquinhos.

The Brazilian was on the end of a perfectly-placed free-kick from Angel Di Maria, allowing him an uncontested header from close range.

By burying that header, Marquinhos gave PSG an early lead while also sealing the club’s spot in the record books. 

With the goal, Paris Saint German have now scored in 34 consecutive European matches, dating all the way back to 2016.

Spain Giants, Real Madrid are the only other club to ever score in 34 straight European matches, with the Spanish side doing so between 2011-2014 in the Champions League.
