Elsewhere, in Group F,  Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde scored a superb second-half goal and Marco Asensio struck late to fire the holders to a 2-0 win at home to RB Leipzig. Shaktar Donetsk shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw against Celtic.

Battling Salzburg held a disjointed Chelsea to a 1-1 draw, severely denting the 2021 winners' chances of qualifying from Group E. AC Milan top the Group after a 3-1 win against previous table-toppers Dinamo Zagreb.

Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi combined superbly as Paris St Germain's near-perfect start to the season continued with a 3-1 win at Maccabi Haifa to top Group H, level with Benfica who claimed a 2-1 victory at Juventus.
