    The first leg of the Champions League round of 16 between Real Madrid and PSG had to be paused after the Brazilian striker hit a referee in the head with the ball.

    The game's lead referee, Gianluca Rocchi appeared a bit shaken up immediately following the incident, but after a brief stop to check for any signs of concussion the action resumed.

    Madrid, playing at home, came out on top 3-1 with Christiano Ronaldo notching a brace and Marcelo adding the other goal. Adrien Rabiot netted the only goal for the visitors.

    The second leg will take place in Paris, on March 6.
