The opening whistle at the Parc des Princes had barely been blown before PSG netted their first Champions League goal of the night against Arsenal.

PSG had Edinson Cavani to thank for their early lead, who headed home after just 42 seconds of play.

Gunners boss Arsenal Wenger made the risky gamble of swapping the favoured goalkeeper Petr Cech for David Ospina – and probably regretted it soon after.
I really don't understand the policy of Wenger when it comes to keepers. Would definitely choose Cech over Ospina in a game like this.— TJ Mateo (@timjammat) September 13, 2016
There’d also been high hopes that German central defender Shkodran Mustafi – who was snapped up at the end of the transfer window – would transform Arsenal’s back line, but fans still found the Gunners’ defence questionable.
So pleased we strengthened the defence in the transfer window. Making such a difference NOT #arsenal— Dave Lloyd (@montipora14) September 13, 2016
