Argentina winger Angel Di Maria scored twice on Wednesday in Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Real Madrid, while Atletico Madrid held Juventus to an agonizing draw thanks to Mexico’s Hector Herrera.
PSG did not have Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, but it did not seem to surprise them in their resounding win in Group A, which was completed with a goal from Thomas Meunier at the discount.
Madrid, who showed a lackluster image in the Parque de Los Príncipes, suffered their first defeat of the season.
In another highlight of the day, Atletico Madrid drew 2-2 with Juventus in Group D after recovering from a two-goal deficit.
Colombia’s Juan Cuadrado opened the scoring with a goal for the visiting team after 48 minutes and Blaise Matuidi increased the lead to 65 with a header.
Stefan Savic in the ’70s and Herrera in the ’90s gave the Argentine DT team Diego Simeone an equal footing.
In Germany, Bayern Munich beat Red Star 3-0 with goals from Kingsley Coman, Robert Lewandowski, and Thomas Müller.
Meanwhile, Olympiakos recovered from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the other Group B match.
The English team took advantage through Harry Kane’s penalty and a goal from Lucas Moura, but the Greek team tied with goals from Daniel Podence and Mathieu Valbuena.
For Group C, Manchester City beat Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 away with goals from Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan, and Gabriel Jesus.
