Neymar, Edison Cavani and Dani Alves found the back of the net as PSG outplayed Bayern Munich 3-0 in Group B of the Champions League. Also, it was Kylian Mbappe, who gave a jaw-dropping performance and made things hard for the German champions.

Alves hammered home a pass from Neymar and give his team a second-minute lead at the Parc des Princes, before Edinson Cavani fired home a second from 18 yards out.

Mbappe opened up the Bayern defence down the right and checked to play the ball inside to Cavani, who crashed home a first-time shot from the edge of the area.

Cavani’s goal was arguably the best of the lot and the curling effort saw him become only the fifth player to score in six successive Champions League games.

Bayern, on the other hand, created some good chances but failed to put them away and later they allowed Neymar to seal things with a close-range finish shortly after the hour mark.

Elsewhere, Chelsea came from behind to defeat Atletico Madrid 2-1 as Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi scored for the EPL champions.

Chelsea, despite dominating the early proceedings, found themselves behind when David Luiz gave away a first-half penalty which Antoine Griezmann converted at Wanda Metropolitano.

The hosts went into half-time one goal, however, Morata restored parity on the hour mark, when he headed home Eden Hazard’s cross to equalize. Later, in the 93rd minute, Batshuayi struck with the final kick of the game to clinch the dramatic and deserved victory over Spanish Giants.

In a different match, Manchester United thrashed CSKA Moscow 4-1 at their home as Romelu Lukaku scored a brace, while Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan netted one goal each. United owed this victory to the fabulous Martial, who created both of Lukaku’s goals and scored a penalty.

Elsewhere, Barcelona eked out a 1-0 win at Sporting Lisbon thanks to an own-goal by center back Sebastian Coates. Barcelona offered little else in the attack, other than a couple of shots each by Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, and needed goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to ensure the points with a key save as Sporting hemmed the visitors into their area.
