The two teams that won the first two games in Group 8 met tonight (Wednesday), to fight for the first place that met all expectations and ended in a 1:1 draw.
The team from the City of Lights just didn't make it to the beginning of the game and the first half opened with complete control by the Portuguese.
Galtier's students tried to move the ball from behind and had difficulty going forward due to the high pressure of the host.
Gianluigi Donnarumma's incredible half kept the French champions in the game with two huge saves stopping Gonzalo Ramos and David Ners.
Roger Schmidt's men did not know how to score and Leo Messi punished in the 22nd minute after a beautiful move with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Paris had a bad half and even after the goal did not enter the game, Benifika continued to dominate and in the 41st minute Danilo Pereira's own goal established a justified tie at halftime.
The second half started better for the French.
Galtier's men took control of the game, controlled the ball and threatened the goal more.
If in the first half the Italian goalkeeper of Paris gave an amazing display, this time it was the turn of the goalkeeper of Benifika, Odyssas and Lahodimus.
Big chances of Ashraf Hakimi, Mbappe and Neymar were stopped by the Greek goalkeeper who prevented the victory of the team from the City of Lights.
Both teams can be disappointed at the end of the game, but the distribution of points between them was justified.
