Paris Saint Germain laid down a Champions League marker with an impressive 3-0 victory over thirteen time winners Real Madrid.

Real, winners of four of the last six editions of the competition, were undone by two goals from former star Angel Di Maria and a late Thomas Meunier strike as they went down in France.

The game also featured a stunning goal from Gareth Bale which was ruled out after VAR spotted a handball by the Welshman.

Elsewhere in group A, Club Brugges and Galatasaray played out a 0-0 draw.

Goals from Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi gave Juventus a 2-0 lead at in group D Atletico Madrid, but Stefan Savic and a late Hector Herrera header clawed the game back in an entertaining draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
