Champions League: Real Madrid beat Dortmund, PSG make a strong bid to knock Chelsea out after the first leg

Real Madrid were in cruise control at Santiago Bernabeu as they beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 and all but make it to the last four. Paris Saint-Germain will travel to London as favourites next week after winning 3-1 at Parc des Princes.

Borussia Dortmund, missing a number of first-string players through injuries and suspension, were nowhere as good as the hosts at Bernabeu last night. Gareth Bale opened the scoring just two minutes into the game, Isco doubled the lead on 27 and Cristiano Ronaldo completed a 3-0 victory on 57 minutes on his 100th appearance in the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain claimed a 3-1 victory against misfiring Chelsea. Ezequiel Lavezzi scored just four minutes into the game, but Eden Hazard equalized from penalty spot on 27. PSG went in front after an own goal from David Luiz, and Javier Pastore added a third one in injury time with a personal effort. Chelsea have a big job to do at Stamford Bridge to try and turn things around, while Laurent Blanc will be missing key man Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had been substituted in the second half with a thigh injury.
