Liverpool coast into quarter-finals after Porto draw as Real Madrid end PSG challenge

Jurgen Klopp's side come through unscathed at Anfield.

Magic from Casillas at Anfield.! The Spaniard rolls back the years to deny Danny Ings with a dream goal on his Champions League debut, clawing away his looping header to keep it goalless.

Surely that is it for PSG. They give the ball away on the half way line again with Ronaldo pouncing, racing inside from the right. He slides the ball out to the onrushing Carvajal, whose ball across goal is only partially cleared by Rabiot into the path of Casemiro. The Brazilian takes the shot on and via a hugely helpful deflection off Thiago Silva, his effort ends up in the back of the net.

A chance for Real to finish it! Di Maria loses the ball on the half way line and Benzema races forward with Ronaldo providing support. It's two on one, but Benzema opts to take it on himself, shooting for goal. His effort looked to take a deflection off Marquinhos but a goal kick is given.

PSG have one back! Silva's header causes havoc in the box as Real fail to clear their lines. The ball rebounds back off Cavani who unwittingly diverts the ball home. Game on?

Asensio whacks the post! A delightful move sees the ball cut back to him just inside the box but his vicious effort bounces back off the woodwork.
