Leipzig equalise in Paris!

Hello everyone and welcome along to this Champions League live blog for this Tuesday's Paris Saint-Germain vs RB Leipzig game.

Mauricio Pochettino's PSG have four points from a possible six so far and he has his South American players back for this one, including Lionel Messi.

PSG 1-1 RB Leipzig LIVE - Latest Updates

This, then, is the start of our PSG vs RB Leipzig live blog, with our updates from this Parisian Champions League night following on from here. As always, the entries nearest the top are the most recent ones.

Minute 40: PSG failing to create

PSG are having a fair bit of the ball, but they have not been able to find through the Leipzig defence. On the counter-attack, Leipzig still look a threat.


Leipzig worked the ball from right to left, which allowed Angelino to guide a cross across goal that Andre Silva met at the back post. That goal had been coming. PSG 1-1 Leipzig.

Minute 27: Andre Silva hits the post!

Nkunku headed the ball into the direction of Andre Silva, who took a touch before firing a volley at goal, but it came back out off the post.

Minute 25: Leipzig come close

Nkunku's free-kick cross was kept alive by Mukiele and then Marquinhos put it over his own crossbar from a couple of yards out. Leipzig do seem a threat when they are pushing forward.

Minute 15: Nuno Mendes down injured

Nuno Mendes went down and needed some treatment, but he seems to be okay and is able to continue.

Minute 9: GOAL FOR PSG!

From Leipzig appealing for a penalty at one end to Mbappe opening the scoring at the other. Mbappe received the ball on the left and fired his shot through Orban's legs. PSG 1-0 Leipzig.

Minute 7: Keylor Navas forced into action

Keylor Navas had to make back-to-back saves to prevent Leipzig from opening the scoring. At least the Costa Rican looks healthy after the knock he picked up whilst on international duty.

Minute 2: Marquinhos to the rescue

Leipzig won the ball back in PSG's half and that led to Nkunku laying the ball off to Laimer with the goal gaping, but Marquinhos was able to get across and block his effort.
