AC Milan beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday at San Siro, handing PSG another road loss in the competition. Furthermore, the Ligue 1 giants find themselves in a challenging situation after four matchdays.
PSG are currently in second place in Group F with six points, ahead of AC Milan (five points) and Newcastle United (six points). Borussia Dortmund holds the top spot with seven points.
Nonetheless, the Champions League standings after four matchdays are tight and going down to the wire, which doesn’t surprise manager Luis Enrique.
“Only three points difference between first and last placed team? It’s the group of death,” Enrique told reporters. “That’s why they called it that. The four teams have their fate in their own hands. We will have a very important match in Paris next matchday vs. Newcastle.”

PSG will play Newcastle at home on Nov. 28 and then go on the road to close out the group stage against Borussia Dortmund on Dec. 13. Two wins in these games seal their ticket to the Champions League knockout stages.
However, anything less than four points between the two matches puts PSG’s chances of advancing to the round of 16 in jeopardy. Buckle up, fans, because this will be a bumpy finish.
