Paris Saint-Germain have begun their latest quest for Champions League glory with a 2-1 win over fellow Group H heavyweights Juventus at the Parc des Princes this evening.
Two first-half goals from Kylian Mbappe put the French giants in charge of the contest at the interval, but they did not capitalise fully on their dominance and allowed Juventus back into the match in the second half.
While the better chances continued to fall the way of the hosts, Weston McKennie pulled a goal back for Juve and forced Christophe Galtier‘s side to hang on to the one-goal victory.
The win is PSG’s first in their nine meetings with Juventus across all competitions and leaves them at the tip of Group H after one game, level with Benfica after the Portuguese outfit beat Maccabi Haifa 2-0.
