Edinson Cavani finishes off PSG counter with an emphatic finish v Bayern

Edinson Cavani finishes off PSG counter with an emphatic finish v Bayern”

"Now we want to finish first in the group". Leigh Griffiths got the opener before a Patrick Roberts shot deflected in off Kara Mbodji and Scott Sinclair wrapped up the win late on. Michy Batshuayi scored the victor for Chelsea.

In Group A, Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Manchester United was a comfortable 4-1 victor away to CSKA Moscow.

Carlo Ancelotti's side were beaten 3-0 by PSG last night, and are now level on points with Celtic.

Group D rivals Barcelona and Juventus delivered expected victories.

Barcelona needed an own goal from Sebastian Coates to win.

Edinson Cavani then shocked the German Champions by doubling PSG's lead in the 31st minute with an unstoppable strike.

Ancelotti, meanwhile, has seen his side take just three wins from its last six games and Sunday's trip to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga is now a vital one.

Neymar, recalled to the side after missing the goalless draw at Montpelier at the weekend due to a foot injury, set up the opening goal after just 90 seconds.

"I thought a lot about what the best team to play was". Neymar scored in the 63rd after Bayern failed to deal with Mbappe's threat.

"What we saw tonight wasn't Bayern Munich", Rummenigge said in his post-match banquet speech at the five-star L'Hotel du Collectionneur.

It would have been easier to swallow paying that price if their team had won, but they fell behind in the second minute and never recovered.

Antonio Conte's side got off to the flawless start beating Qarabag 6-0 at Stamford Bridge a fortnight back. The Blues continued to make inroads with Alvaro Morata scoring early in the second half to make it 1-1. Anthony Martial crossed for Romelu Lukaku to head United into a fourth-minute lead, and Martial added a second from the penalty spot after Henrikh Mkhitaryan was fouled by Georgi Schennikov. Coach Raphael Wicky, in his first season of senior management at any club, punched the air wildly at each goal.

Arturo Vidal turned home a rebound four minutes later after his initial shot was saved, but his effort was ruled offside as nothing went right for the visitors, while Kimmich's excellent cross was punched behind by Areola.

"Today they defended higher and had the ball but we controlled the game without it", said Emery, whose side have scored eight goals and conceded none in two European outings.
