German Leipzig took revenge on its guest, Paris Saint-Germain, and won it with two goals on Wednesday in the third round of Group H of the UEFA Champions League.French champions Paris Saint-Germain played the match in the absence of Brazilian trio Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Argentine Mauro Icardi because of injury, as Tuchel paid Spaniard Pablo Sarabia and Italian Moise Kane, who was brilliant in the recent period. Italian Marco Verratti, German Julian Draxler, and Spain’s Juan Bernat were also absent.

Paris Saint-Germain beat its German counterpart 3-0 in the semi-finals of last season in Lisbon when the tournament was completed with a system of grouping and elimination from one match because of the repercussions of the new Coronavirus.

Argentine Angel di Maria opened the scoring for the French team in the sixth minute, before wasting a penalty kick in the 16th minute, but French Christopher Nkunku equalized the score for Leipzig in the 42nd minute.

In the second half, the German team took the lead in the 57th minute from a penalty kick that Swedish Emil Forsberg successfully translated, giving his team the lead.

Saint-Germain played with ten men since the 69th minute after Senegalese referee Idrissa Guay was sent off for receiving a second warning before defender Presnel Kimpembe was sent off in stoppage time.

It is the second loss for St. Germain, as he fell in the first round at home to Manchester United (1-2) before winning the second round over Basaksehir away from home with two clean goals.

The Parisian team is in third place in Group H with 3 points behind Leipzig II (6 points), while Manchester United leads the standings (6 points), despite their sudden loss today to Basaksehir (1-2).
