The 2018 world champion tricked one of Milan’s defenders and put the ball into the net with a powerful shot. As it turned out, that was the only goal before half-time. Thanks to this, the players of the French capital entered the break with a one-goal lead.
After the break, the hosts started attacking. Ousmane Dembélé scored for the Italian team, but during this action Manuel Ugarte committed a foul on the opponent, which meant that the Frenchman’s goal could not be recognized. But this situation did not weaken Luis Enrique’s flanks.
After a while, the Paris players increased their lead. Dembele received the ball in the opponent’s penalty area and then fired a shot. Mike Minyan blocked this shot, but had no chance to follow up. Randall Kolo Mwani scored the winning goal in the 53rd minute.
A few minutes before the end of the match, the hosts put the nail in Milan’s coffin. This time, Lee Kang-in put the ball into the visitors’ goal. It is worth noting that the South Korean player did not appear on the field until the 71st minute, when he replaced Dembélé. This was the last goal scored during Wednesday’s competitions at Parc des Princes Stadium.
Thanks to this victory, Paris Saint-Germain currently leads the group with six points, ahead of Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United. Milan ranks last with only two points.
