Paris Saint-Germain achieved a relatively easy victory on Tuesday evening. The French were visited by Borussia Dortmund and while the scoreboard was still on the scoreboard during the tea break, the reigning French champions were awarded a penalty immediately after half-time, which Kylian Mbappé took advantage of. About ten minutes later, after a nice combination between Achraf Hakimi and Vitinha, the former made the final score 2-0.

After the disappointing 2-3 loss in the own Parc des Princes against OGC Nice, coach Luis Enrique intervened in a number of places. Very expensive purchase Goncalo Ramos was sent to the bench in favor of other top signing Randal Kolo Muani. The Frenchman was flanked by Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé. Manuel Ugarte was also preferred to Carlos Soler. At Dortmund, Donyell Malen was of course assigned a starting place, while Sébastien Haller had to settle for a reserve role.

A threatening Malen caused some German danger after about fifteen minutes. With a quick dribble he passed Vitinha, but his effort was too weak to deal with Gianluigi Donnarumma. On the other hand, it was an almost immediate hit. After a hard low cross, Kolo Muani was unable to convert the ball into a goal. A few minutes later, PSG was dangerous again. After nice positional play, the ball ended up with Vitinha, who controlled the ball onto the post. After a corner kick variation in the short corner, Dembéle found the gloves of Gregor Kobel, after which les Parisiens claimed a handball in the consecutive corner. However, there was no penalty.

Immediately after halftime, referee Jésus Gil Manzano did put the ball on the spot. A bet from Mbappé ended unfortunately on the hand of Niklas Süle. The French superstar made no mistake from eleven meters: 1-0. Ten minutes later, Enrique’s formation doubled the lead. Vitinha combined with Hakimi in the box, after which the Moroccan nicely cut through Mats Hummels. Face to face with Kobel, the right back poked into the side netting. past Kobel: 2-0. That was also the final score, which means that PSG is the sole leader in Group F after the draw between AC Milan and Newcastle United earlier tonight.
