The Parc des Princes remains a home-field advantage for Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
Matchday 2 saw the French giants suffer a lopsided 4-1 loss to Newcastle United. As a result, returning home did wonders for PSG. After the Ligue 1 side’s 3-0 win over AC Milan, the result marked the 34th occasion in their last 35 matches in which PSG didn’t lose.
Squawka pointed out on Twitter that Manchester United, under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, are the only team to beat PSG in Paris during the group stage. The Red Devils handed the Parisians a 2-1 loss in Oct. 2020 and remain the only defeat at home that PSG has.

There are three Champions League games left, and PSG only has one more home contest against the Magpies. Newcastle will look to follow in Manchester United’s footsteps in taking all three points from PSG, as right now, both clubs are two points apart in Group F.
