The start of the match set the scene for what was to come: this match would be a battle from start to finish, at every contact, in every duel. It was always going to take something special to find the light at the Estádio da Luz. After an incredible piece of link-up play between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr, Leo Messi, arriving through the middle of the pitch, curled a stunning effort into the back of the net.

The visitors’ lead wasn’t enough to prevent the side from Lisbon from getting back to business. And even though Donnarumma once again proved decisive to deny Antonio Silva (37′), Benfica finally struck back with the equaliser just before the break after a mix-up at the back

With the match back on level terms, the second half expectedly saw an intense tactical battle play out. The Rouge et Bleu gave their all to try to find a way past the Portuguese side. They saw the magical acrobatic effort from Neymar Jr hit the bar (48′), another dangerous free-kick from the Brazilian (54′) or Mbappé’s powerful strike which forced Vlachodimos into action (68′). Paris were hitting the right tone, despite the palpable edginess on the pitch.

PSG remain at the top of Group H, before the return fixture at home next week against Benfica. The date is set on home soil.
