The big game of the day saw Newcastle enter the Parc des Princes with a target on their back, but the Magpies pulled off another stunning upset over Paris Saint-Germain.

The home side rallied hard against their injury-hit opponents, allowing the visitors to take their first chance when it came.

Tino Livramento danced his way past PSG’s staggering eight players, flicked the ball to Miguel Almiron, and while Gianluigi Donnraumma saved Paraguay’s shot, Alexander Isak headed home the rebound.

PSG then played the second half, but the organized visitors seemed well prepared for the challenge. Bradley Barcola somehow missed two opportunities to equalize from point-blank range before drama ensued.

Anthony Gordon appeared to miss the penalty and despite PSG’s cries, VAR said no. A few minutes later, 17-year-old Lewis Miley handled the ball in the box, but the appeal failed again.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope then stayed at the top of his game to deny shot after shot, but a late, late penalty from Kylian Mbappé was too much in the dying moments.

Borussia Dortmund is first, PSG second, Newcastle third and Milan fourth. Everyone is now watching match day six!
