Newcastle United pulled off a stunning 2-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday, October 4, 2023. The win was a testament to the power of a team built on fight and determination, rather than star power.
Newcastle started the match on the front foot and took the lead in the 17th minute through Miguel Almirón. The Paraguayan forward pounced on a loose ball in the PSG box and fired a low shot into the bottom corner.
Newcastle doubled their lead in the 42nd minute through Dan Burn. The English defender headed home a Kieran Trippier corner, despite the attention of PSG's Marquinhos.
PSG had their chances in the second half, but they were unable to find a way back into the game. Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope made a number of excellent saves to keep a clean sheet.
Newcastle's victory over PSG was a significant achievement. PSG are one of the richest clubs in the world and have a squad full of world-class players. However, Newcastle showed that they are a force to be reckoned with, even without any household names in their team.
