UCL: Newcastle shocks PSG with landmark victory

Newcastle United was a marvel on Wednesday night as they outclassed French champions, PSG, to secure a very deserving 4-1 victory in their second game of the Champions League campaign.

The Magpies, who played a Champions League game for the first time at home, following their return to the competition this season, after being out since 2003, got off to a great and dominant start, putting 2 goals past the visitors at halftime, courtesy of  Miguel Almiron and Dan Burn.

After the break, the Toon Army did not relent, as they quickly tripled their lead with PSG’s keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, unable to stop Sean Longstaff’s strike. 

Luis Enrique’s side pulled one back thanks to Lucas Hernandez’s header.

A 3-1 scoreline was damaging enough but Eddie Howe’s men weren’t done, as Fabian Schar, fired home a stoppage-time fourth.

A fantastic result for Newcastle, who are now top of Group F with four points from two games, but a terribly unbelievable defeat for PSG who are second on the log with three points.
