PARIS-SAINT GERMAIN kicked off their Champions League campaign with a triumphant start, thanks to a Kylian Mbappe penalty that paved the way for a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes.
The French champions asserted their dominance in the first half, although they didn’t seriously challenge the Dortmund defense. Their breakthrough came just four minutes into the second half when Mbappe successfully converted a penalty awarded for a handball by Niklas Suele.
Achraf Hakimi sealed the deal with a remarkable second goal, and PSG could have secured an even more substantial victory in Group F.
This result immediately places them in command of the group, especially after AC Milan and Newcastle United played to a goalless draw earlier. Coach Luis Enrique is optimistic that they can build on this performance as they prepare to face the English side in two weeks.
On the other hand, Dortmund fell short of their best form and will need to raise their game when they host Milan in this demanding section.
They are still adapting to life without Jude Bellingham, and coach Edin Terzic made the decision to bench Sebastien Haller, who has had a challenging start to the campaign.
