Paris St. Germain opened their Champions League season by defeating Juventus 2-1 at home on Tuesday,
marking their first victory against the Italian team. Kylian Mbappe performed the role of major tormentor.
Mbappe scored two goals in the first half—one spectacular and one more—before Weston McKennie,
cut the deficit in half as the French champions’ level dropped.
Gianluigi Donnarumma made three excellent stops to offset a mistake for the visitors’ goal,
preventing Juve from equalising and assuring PSG defeated
the Italian team for the first time in nine meetings after losing the previous six.
In PSG’s opening Champions League group stage match,
Kylian Mbappe’s spectacular first-half double was just enough to secure all three points as the Parisians held off a second-half Juventus comeback attempt.
The Italian team struggled for the first 45 minutes as Mbappe and Neymar
repeatedly broke past their defence but were unable to score Gianluigi Donnarumma’s goal. But Juve’s substitution of Weston McKennie
during halftime changed the outcome and ignited a second-half charge.
Early in the second half,
McKennie got one back for Juventus by rising high to meet a corner, but it was all they would manage as Donnarumma stood strong on numerous occasions.
In the second half, both teams had pivotal opportunities to shift momentum in their favour, but Donnarumma and Mattia Perin,
who was on the other side, continued to shine.

At first glance,
PSG are a fresh-off-the-lot Ferrari. However,
when the shiny chassis and glossy paint are removed, there are significant engineering defects that can thwart their Champions League assault. Again.

A often shaky Paris Saint-Germain team won their Champions League
opener against Juventus 2-1 thanks to a sensational Kylian Mbappe brace.
PSG appears to be a brand-new Ferrari at first glance. However,
when you take the shiny chassis and glossy paint off,
you’ll find severe engineering problems that might derail their Champions League charge. Again.
When facing Juventus,
the most expensively put together front-three in history was frequently unstoppable, and Mbappe’s quick-fire brace, assisted by Neymar, revealed the unique, dazzling side of the French club.
This was far closer than it ought to be. Paris Saint-Germain had a relaxed first half in which they quickly built a two-goal lead, but the second half was tense. However,
Christophe Galtier’s team overcame a stronger Juventus showing following the break to begin their Champions League campaign with a victory.
With two goals to cap off exquisite forward play and highlight what a desirable squad PSG are, Kylian Mbappe gave the French team a two-goal lead at the break. Juventus,
on the other hand, benefited from a change in personnel and structure by scoring early in the second half and giving PSG cause for concern about a potential equaliser.
Galtier, the most recent PSG manager to try his hand at leading the team toward the eagerly awaited Champions League title,
was relieved that it never materialised. He brought all of his wealth to bear on Juventus, and at times, the Italian visitors were all but played for laughs.
Before Mbappe scored the scoring in minute six, there was much to like about PSG. The innovation required relatively little yet was carried out superbly. Neymar launched a nicely-weighted ball for Mbappe from a standing start.+
Paris St. Germain defeated Juventus at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday, kicking off their most recent campaign for Champions League glory with a double-goal performance from Kylian Mbappe.
The first of Mbappe’s two goals, which came after an outrageously scooped assist by Neymar within of five minutes, and the second, which came at the conclusion of an excellent play midway through the first half, were both incredible.
