Paris: Real Madrid was humiliated on the ground when its former player Angel Di Maria scored twice against the former club on Wednesday.
Angel Di Maria, the former Real Madrid player, was hailed as “exceptional” when he goaled twice against his former football club. The star of the night was playing for Paris Saint-Germain.
Angel Di Maria beat Real goalkeeper at his near post to put the club ahead in the 14th minute at the Parc des Princes, but his second goal just after the half-hour changed the game.
The Argentine, who played for Real for four years, and won the Champions League with them in 2014 before moving to Manchester United, left Courtois no option with a left-footed shot from 20 yards out that arrowed into the corner.
“We can’t be too surprised because he has been showing for more than a year now that he is capable of performances like that,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. “He was exceptional tonight. He is always dangerous.”
