Nevertheless,PSG won with a 3-2 scoreline,as they are still unbeaten after three games into the campaign. A draw against Club Brugge,and wins over Manchester City and RB Leipzig ensured that the Parisians remained unbeaten to stay top of 'Group A'.
The Old Ladies are currently on a game winning streak of 6 games across all competitions,after an 86' minute goal by Dejan Kulusevski assisted by Mattia de Sciglio to win all three points against Zenit FC.
The Old Ladies who seem to be adapting to the post Ronaldo era are top of their group with 3 wins in 3 games.
