Newcastle United were denied a famous win against Paris Saint Germain following their 1-1 draw in France on Tuesday night.

Less fancied Newcastle took the lead after Tino Livramento danced past a staggering eight PSG players, switching the ball to Miguel Almiron, and while Gianluigi Donnraumma saved the Paraguayan’s shot, Alexander Isak poked home the rebound.

PSG came back a better team in the second half but failed to break the visitors rearguard until the last minutes when a penalty from Kylian Mbappé after a controversial Livramento denied the English side all the points.

With the result, Borussia Dortmund confirmed their place in the next round of the competition following their 3-1 win over AC Milan on the same night.

In other games, Barcelona came from a goal down to beat FC Porto 2-1 and confirm their place in the knockout phase of the competition.

Porto hit on the break and Pepê smashed a loose ball home beyond goalkeeper Iñaki Peña Sotorres from a tight angle. Yet a staggering 116 seconds later, summer-signing João Cancelo equalised with a stunning solo run into the box and found the far right corner. Something must have been said at half-time too, as a second summer signing named João then turned it all around for the hosts. Ironically, Félix’s goal was assisted by the aforementioned João.

Atletico Madrid also made their way into the next round after beating Feyenoord 3-1 in the Netherlands.
