Paris Saint-Germain took care of business in its UEFA Champions League group stage clash with Manchester City on matchday two as it came away with a 2-0 win.
PSG’s star-studded attack of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe did not have their way over the course of the match, although the Argentine did score his first career goal with the French powerhouse during the second half.
After the match, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola offered his early impressions of PSG’s superstar attacking trio.
“They can take up space,” Guardiola said. “They are exceptional players. Like Messi-Suarez-Neymar at Barca. Few teams can have these players. PSG has them. We can’t control them. I know two solutions: defend and pray or take the ball and create with it.”
PSG will now look ahead to a key Ligue 1 away fixture against Rennes.
