Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher has hit out at Paris Saint-Germain’s defenders for Real Madrid’s third goal on Wednesday night, describing it as “absolutely disgraceful”.
PSG looked to be heading for the quarter-finals as they led 2-0 on aggregate at half-time.
However, a 17-minute hat-trick from Karim Benzema turned the tie on its head and saw the LaLiga giants progress.
Benzema’s third goal came only 11 seconds after the game restarted following his second of the night.
“This is absolutely embarrassing, 11 seconds.
“If Real Madrid were playing against an Under-15 team or a kids team, this shouldn’t happen.
“This is absolutely disgraceful, it really is. Players at this level, where they’ve just got to dig in and fight.
“They really have, obviously really difficult position where they’ve just conceded two goals but to do that straight from a kick-off is absolutely embarrassing,” Carragher said on CBS Sports.
