Newcastle United made history on Wednesday evening in their latest Champions League clash.
The Magpies put four past French champions PSG to secure the win and go top of Group F.
Miguel Almiron scored an absolute thunderbolt after 17 minutes to fire Newcastle in front at St James’ Park before Dan Burn added a second shortly before half-time following a lengthy VAR check.
Newcastle’s dominance continued into the second half with Sean Longstaff making it 3-0 in the 50th minute. Lucas Hernandez pulled one back for the visitors six minutes later but PSG could not find another goal. Fabian Schar’s 91st-minute effort then killed off any chance of a late comeback from PSG.
Following the game, it has been revealed that Newcastle’s 4-1 win over PSG was the Mapgies’ biggest-ever winning margin in a Champions League match, and heaviest group stage defeat for the French club in the competition since a 0-3 loss to Chelsea in September 2004.
Elsewhere, Dan Burn and Sean Longstaff’s strikes ment Newcastle had two different English goalscorers in a single Champions League game for a second time, after December 1997 v Dynamo Kyiv (John Barnes and Stuart Pearce).
