We executed our first-half plan as intended, but faltered in the second,” expressed Milan’s Olivier Giroud. “Our lack of finishing in the box and costly mistakes after halftime hurt us. We must regroup.”

PSG began the match aggressively but struggled against Milan’s midfield dominance and relentless pressing play. They eventually gained the upper hand when Zaire-Emery’s powerful play in the midfield set up Mbappe, who skillfully found the net with a low shot in the 32nd minute.

Dembele celebrated what he believed was his first PSG goal, but it was disallowed due to a prior foul by Manuel Ugarte. Undeterred, Dembele played a crucial role in Kolo Muani’s goal, as his shot was deflected by Milan’s goalkeeper, Mike Maignan, and set up his compatriot, who calmly slotted the ball into the empty net.

Milan had their moments, especially through Christian Pulisic, but Gianluigi Donnarumma was in fine form, making key saves, including tipping Rafael Leao’s attempt over the bar to preserve a clean sheet.

Mbappe had a couple of chances denied by Maignan, who showcased his shot-stopping ability with two excellent saves. Lee sealed the victory with his first PSG goal in the final minute, connecting with Zaire-Emery’s pass to cap off a standout performance.

PSG’s next match is on November 7th against Milan, who desperately need their first group stage win to keep their knockout phase hopes alive. Meanwhile, Borussia is set to host Newcastle as they aim to secure a three-point lead in the standings.
