  • A FIRST GOAL IN A FIRST START FOR ALVAREZ! Messi works a one-two pass with Mac Allister, getting the PSG forward to the edge of the area where he again plays it out to his left for Tagliafico. The full-back drives a low cross into the area where Gonzalez fails to get a shot away - presenting the opportunity for Alvarez, who coolly slots it home!

  • VALENCIA HAS THE LAST LAUGH! 1-1! The captain steps up and fires his penalty to the left, only to see the goalkeeper guess correctly to parry it away. With extreme composure, the forward collects the loose ball and has time to take a touch before slotting a finish past the out of place Rulli! Late drama!
