Off the post! Bale steps up, hits a ferocious free-kick and sees it cannon back off the post! So, so close!
Draxler barges over Modric and Madrid have a free-kick 30 yards out, pretty central.
Mbappe shoots from a tight angle and hits the side-netting. Had he looked up, Sarabia was unmarked in the middle.
Rodrugo lays the ball off to Carvajal, but his shot is deflected and thus loses all its pace.
Four more minutes.
Navas plucks a cross destined for Benzema out of the air.
- Yellow cardThomas MeunierParis Saint-Germain
Meunier is finally booked.
Varane loses his marker at a corner but then can't hit the target.
Navas can only palm a well-hit strike into the path of Rodygo, who is at a tight angle and chooses to shoot first time rather than cross for Benzema and he drags his shot just wide. Benzema isn't impressed.
What an incredible turnaround.
- GoalPablo SarabiaParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Real Madrid 2-2 PSG (Sarabia). Wow! Bernat's low cross comes to Draxler and his shot is blocked but only as far as Sarabia, who lashes the ball into the top corner on the bounce! That's a brilliant strike.
- OffIscoReal Madrid
- OnRodrygoReal Madrid
Rodrygo on for Isco.
- GoalKylian MbappéParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Real Madrid 2-1 PSG (Mbappe). Varane and Courtois get in a horrible mix-up, neither of them deals with a dribbling cross and Mbappe is left to prod into an empty net!
- GoalKarim BenzemaReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 2-0 PSG (Benzema). Marcelo is afforded space on the left and he floats a cross towards Benzema, who heads downwards and past Navas to surely seal the win.
Benzema beats three PSG men and Modric then releases Bale down the left, but his cross can't find a colleague.
Sarabia heads straight for the box but Meunier's cross is closer to Courtois than him.
- OffFederico ValverdeReal Madrid
- OnLuka ModricReal Madrid
Modric comes on for the impressive Valverde as Zidane also makes a change.
- OffÁngel Di MaríaParis Saint-Germain
- OnJulian DraxlerParis Saint-Germain
And Draxler replaces Di Maria to make it a double swap.
- OffMauro IcardiParis Saint-Germain
- OnPablo SarabiaParis Saint-Germain
Sarabia is on for Icardi.
Also not come off for Neymar yet.
Mbappe knocks the ball past Carvajal, runs to the byline and then crosses to nobody. It's just not been his night, but he's had very little service.
- OffEden HazardReal Madrid
- OnGareth BaleReal Madrid
Bale takes Hazard's place and there are a few boos when that is announced.
- Yellow cardMarceloReal Madrid
Marcelo is booked after catching Marquinhos late. He's unlucky - far worse has gone unpunished.
Hazard won't be able to carry on, he's limping off.
Neymar plays a lovely ball and suddenly Courtois and Mbappe are in a race to the ball again, but the goalie wins this time.
Meunier catches Hazard with a late tackle and he needs some treatment.
Marcelo and Hazard cause chaos down the right and this time it's Varane who squanders the chance they create.
Navas pulls off another sensational stop. Isco meets a low cross six yards out and wrong-foots the goalkeeper, but Navas stretches out a hand as he's falling down and tips the ball wide.
Kroos is teed up by Valverde and sends a daisy-cutter narrowly wide.
That almost-penalty apart, he's been impressive once more and it says it all that Madrid aren't missed Modric tonight.
Meunier tries his luck from 40 yards out and slices a shot horribly wide.
Verratti crudely cuts down Hazard but escapes a booking.
Valverde clumsily bumps into Bernat and it looks like PSG could have a penalty, but instead Madrid get a free-kick for offside. Bernat was well off in fairness.
With Isco surging into the box, Kroos picks the wrong option and another chance goes begging.
Heavy boos for Neymar when he gets the ball.
New half, same old Navas making smart saves. This time he denies Benzema from point-blank range.
- OffIdrissa GueyeParis Saint-Germain
- OnNeymarParis Saint-Germain
We're back underway and, in an attacking change, Neymar has replaced Gueye.
HT: Real Madrid 1-0 PSG. The home team have been sensational at time and are good value for their lead - Benzema the scorer - but they got a massive let-off lat in the half with VAR overturning that red card and penalty.
Florentino Perez disagrees right now.
Three added minutes after that VAR fun.
Tuchel is in hysterics on the bench. One of those 'if you don't laugh you'll cry' situations I think.
No penalty and no red card! They referee has run back the tape and seen a slight push from Gueye on Marcelo in midfield, so instead it's a free-kick to Real Madrid and Courtois lives to fight another day. You have to feel for PSG there.
The referee is off to his monitor...
Penalty to PSG! Maybe. Icardi beats Courtois to a through ball, pokes it past him and is then taken out by the goalkeeper. At the minute it's a free-kick and a red card for Courtois, but VAR will likely change that to a penalty and just a yellow for the goalkeeper.
Navas saves PSG again! This time Kroos spots Marcelo is unmarked from a corner and rolls it to the Brazilian, 14 yards from goal, and Navas shows great reactions to keep out the driven effort wiht his legs.
Bnezema give another reminder of his terrific work-rate as he wins the ball of Bernat on Madrid's right. A shooting opportunity is then fashioned for Carvajal and he strings the palms of Navas.
Mbappe plays a lovely one-two with Di Maria and is slipped in on goal but then elects to shoot when squaring to Icardi was the better option. Courtois saves the shot with ease and Icardi kicks out at the post.
Icardi now has a go from range and Courtois beats it away, although he probably could have caught the ball. It is a wet night in Madrid though.
Enjoying their best spell for a while, PSG work a shooting opportunity for Di Maria and he wins a corner. The same man takes the corner and sends it straight out of play.
Courtois, who has hardly had a thing to do so far, unconvincingly spills a cross but gets away with it.
Navas makes a flying stop to deny Kroos from range. Madrid are playing some superb football right now and PSG are struggling to get out of their own half.
Only three players have scored more in the competition.
The next corner ends up at the feet of Marcelo, who shoots off-target with his weaker foot.
Kroos tries to catch Navas out by going for goal from the corner and forces the Costa Rican to acrobatically tip over.
Hazard sets up Benzema from close range, but there are many blue shirts around him and he can't find the space for a clear shot but does win a corner.
The referee lets a couple of meaty tackles go.
- GoalKarim BenzemaReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 1-0 PSG (Benzema). What a lovely team goal! Following nice work from Hazard, Valverde and Carvajal have an overlap on the right. They play a one-two as Valverde bursts into the box and he then cuts the ball back for Isco, who scuffs a shot onto the post but it's not to worry as Benzema gobbles up the rebound. Brilliant football.
Kroos manufactures a little room on the edge of the box, shifts the ball onto his right foot and fizzes a shot narrowly over.
Mbappe gets behind Ramos on the right and crosses for Icardi, who has peeled off to the back post, but the cross is just a little too high and Icardi can't keep his header down.
Hazard hasn't been able to get on the ball yet.
Icardi gets ahead of his marker and is first to a whipped Bernat cross, but the Argentine can't direct the ball goalwards.
All eyes are Mbappe, of course. He's just been given a polite handshake by Zidane after the two almost collided.
Ramos heads over from the corner - it was a hard chances as he was moving away from goal.
Isco dispossesses Kimpembe high up the pitch and wins a corner.
A promising chances looks to be developing for PSG, but a through for Icardi is just a tad underhit and he's forced away from goal. Meunier and Mbappe had combined nicely on the right.
The home team get the game underway.
The theme music is done and we're almost ready to go. It's a sell-out at the Bernabeu.
It has finished 1-1 in Turkey. We're just five minutes from kick-off now and the teams are ready in the tunnel.
A landmark night for the man many believe is that best striker in the world right now.
Let's quickly go over the table. Madrid have seven points, five fewer than PSG, so must win tonight and hope PSG don't beat Galatasaray on the final night of games to stand any chance of topping the group. Club Brugge and Gala are currently drawing in Turkey, although Brugge have gone down to nine men. If that result holds, Real will be assured of at qualifying without kicking a ball tonight.
Madrid have started slowly, but here are their best bits.
PSG are the only team yet to concede a goal in this season’s competition.
Kylian Mbappe starts for PSG tonight, but many at the stadium will be hoping he plays here more often in the future and Zidane is one of them, much to the frustration of Thomas Tuchel.
Real Madrid have hosted French opposition 11 times before in the Champions League and never lost, winning eight of those games.
PSG back in navy this evening.
As for the visitors, ex-Real men Angel Di Maria and Keylor Navas both play so no surprises there. Marquinhos is expected to start in midfield and Neymar, like Edinson Cavani, has to settle for a place on the bench.
PSG: Navas, Meunier, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Verratti, Marquinhos, Gueye, Di Maria, Icardi, Mbappe. Subs: Rico, Dagba, Diallo, Paredes, Draxler, Sarabia, Neymar, Cavani.
The big surprise from Zinedine Zidane’s line-up is that Isco makes his first start since October and just his second appearance in this season’s Champions League. He, Toni Kroos and Marcelo are the new new faces compared to the team that started against Real Sociedad at the weekend, meaning it’s a relatively conservative line-up picked by Zidane and features four genuine midfielders. Rodrygo must settle for a place on the bench despite his hat-trick in Real's last game in this competition.
REAL MADRID: Courtois, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde, Isco, Benzema, Hazard. Subs: Areola, Miltao, Mendy, Modric, Bale, Jovic, Rodrygo.
Good evening and welcome to Eurosport's coverage of Real Madrid versus Paris Saint-Germain. These two are fighting over top spot in Group A and PSG have the upper hand in that scrap, needing just a point tonight to secure they'll play a runner-up in the last 16. Los Blancos have revenge on their mind though after a 3-0 drubbing in Paris earlier in the campaign. Team news is coming next...
