With Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe terrifying in attack and enormous quality all through their defence and midfield, PSG will still be among the tournament favourites regardless of losing in Bavaria. "If I've got a team that's topped the group, I'd be thinking, 'Ah, we could draw Chelsea'".

The first of those 7-0 wins equalled a record, too, as the biggest away win a team has managed in the group stage, in a group stage where English teams returned to the top of Europe for the first time in years. Is it better than domestic leagues around the world?

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring and Corentin Tolisso struck twice as Bayern Munich fell just short of topping Group B with a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the Allianz Arena. He angled his body perfectly to smash home a wonderful volley from Alberto Moreno's cross shortly after half time, before showing similar elasticity to turn in a close-range second with 15 minutes to play.
