Fans who tuned into the clash between PSG and Napoli got their money's worth as the French champions and Partenopei served up a showpiece that went down to the wire.
The visitors twice took the lead through Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens, but Mario Ruiz put the ball in his own net to tie things up just past the hour mark. Di Maria earned his side a late point.
Per sports writer Jeremy Smith, Les Parisiens had no reason to complain after the contest:
No team impressed more than Dortmund, who took no prisoners against La Liga giants Atletico on their way to a 4-0 win. Axel Witsel opened the scoring with a deflected effort, while Raphael Guerreiro bagged a brace and the impressive Jadon Sancho also scored.
Per OptaJose, the loss was a historic one for Atletico under manager Diego Simeone:
Liverpool were barely troubled by minnows Red Star, as Mohamed Salah bagged a brace and Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane also got on the scoresheet. The latter made some negative headlines as well with a horrendous dive to win his side a penalty.
Rafinha and Jordi Alba got the goals for Barcelona, who cruised without the injured Lionel Messi and took a three-point lead over Inter Milan in their group.
The Nerrazzuri remain in a great position to advance thanks to Spurs' struggles in the Netherlands. PSV secured a late draw against the Premier League side, who mostly had themselves to blame, per sports writer Ben Pearce:
Toby Alderweireld blundered away to hand Hirving Lozano the opener, and Hugo Lloris followed suit in the second half getting sent off for a foul on the Mexican. Lucas Moura and Harry Kane had given their team the lead by that point, but Luuk de Jong bagged a late equaliser.
