REAL MADRID BEAT Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in a prestige friendly played under pouring rain in Doha, Qatar today.

The only goal of the match was scored by 20-year-old Jese after 19 minutes in front of an enthusiastic crowd who favoured the Spanish giants despite the Qatari-ownership of Ligue 1 leaders PSG.

A lively first half produced plenty of open football and good scoring chances but it was Real who struck first.

A defence-splitting pass from Alvaro Morata allowed Jese to get behind the PSG back four and the young striker made no mistake as he slotted the ball past Italian ‘keeper Salvatore Sirigu.

The under-21 international, who made his debut under former coach Jose Mourinho in 2011, has seen his first-team chances limited but took his opportunity with aplomb under the wet Doha conditions.
