Navas rejects a penalty

Everything looked good for the capital's players after Mauro Icardi's new goal. In a pure style fox surfaces, the Argentine took a center Colin Dagba, slightly deflected by a Di Maria to the limit of offside, to open the score (22). After verification of the video assistant (VAR), the goal has been validated by the referee.

However the Parisians proved far from infallible, in the tradition of their last performance in Dijon, and suffered the game, until conceding a penalty in the 76th minute, stopped by Keylor Navas. PSG prevails and has not conceded a goal in the competition, but does not convince.

In the other group game, Real Madrid crushed Galatasaray at Bernabeu (6-0). The Merengues, who had difficulties in the first leg, quickly took the lead by Rodrygo (4th, 7th) and a penalty Ramos (14th). Karim Benzema went from his double (45th, 81st), scoring for the 15the consecutive year in C1, becoming, with 62 achievements, the fourth best scorer of the modern C1 by surpassing Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Rodrygo, who scored the last goal in injury time, became the second youngest player at 18 to score three goals in a Champions League game.
