French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain had a night to forget at St James Park after receiving a 4-1 defeat from Newcastle United in the UEFA Champions League match.

Newcastle United opened their scoring account in the 17th minute through Miguel Almiron after a mistake from PSG captain Marquinhos who attempted to play the ball out from the back only to give it away to Bruno Guimaraes.

The ball then fell to Alexander Isak, whose shot was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma and Almiron opened his body to convert the rebound.

Newcastle United defender Dan Burn doubled the lead in the 39th minute, heading in from Guimaraes’ cross with Donnarumma unable to clear out the ball before it crossed the line.

The goal was subjected to a VAR check for both handball and offside in the buildup, but the goal stood.

Longstaff scored Newcastle United third goal in the 50th minute after running onto Kieran Trippier’s pass and dribbling a low shot in off the elbow of Donnarumma.

Lucas Hernandez pulled a goal back in the 56th for PSG but it was not enough as Fabian Schar added another goal for Newcastle United in the stoppage time.

Newcastle United are now leading Group F by four points after its 0-0 draw at Milan in the opening round of games.

PSG are second in the group after they won 2-0 at home against Dortmund in their first match of group F. In other matches in group F, Milan and Dortmund matches ended in a barren draw.
