Watch: Schar's golazo completes Newcastle's dream victory over PSG


Fabian Schar slipped and fell, but it didn't matter. He had just made it 4-1 for Newcastle United against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Playing a quick one-two with Jacob Murphy, Schar lost his footing but produced enough curl to beat Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 91st minute and seal Newcastle's first Champions League win in two decades.

The result lifts Newcastle into first place in Group F with four points. PSG follow with three points, with AC Milan in third and Borussia Dortmund at the bottom of the quartet.

The Magpies surged into a 3-0 lead after goals from Miguel Almiron and local heroes Dan Burn and Sean Longstaff. PSG's Lucas Hernandez headed home in the 56th minute to give the French visitors a lifeline, but Schar's moment of magic added gloss to a memorable victory.

Wednesday's clash between two of Europe's nouveau-riche sides represented a derby of sorts for Saudi Arabia and Qatar, whose sovereign wealth funds have bankrolled Newcastle and PSG's early success.

Newcastle's latest triumph comes on the heels of a club-record 8-0 victory over Sheffield United and a 1-0 win over Manchester City that eliminated the English giants from the League Cup.
