Paris Saint-Germain kept the pressure on Real Madrid at the top of Group A following their 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League clash on Wednesday night.
Serge Aurier opened the scoring for the Ligue 1 champions while Zlatan Ibrahimovic added the finishing touches late on, but it was David Luiz who claimed the goal of the night with this effort.
Along with Madrid’s win over Malmo on Wednesday, the two European giants are locked at the top of the standings with six points from their first two games of the group stages.
As many expected, it will now likely come down to their head-to-head to determine who finishes top of the group, and with both sides looking in efficient form in Europe, it should provide supporters with two great spectacles in their back-to-back clashes.
In contrast, it appears as though both Shakhtar and Malmo have it all to do in the forthcoming games, but they will hope to keep the pressure on by at least coming away with maximum points from their two respective encounters.
Nevertheless, Laurent Blanc will be delighted with the comfortable nature of his side’s away win, and he will hope that gives his players a boost ahead of domestic matters this weekend.
