Nigeria international, Alex Iwobi, was in the thick of action as Arsenal escaped defeat in Paris against PSG in the UEFA Champions league on Tuesday night.

Iwobi, who only returned to action last weekend after an injury setback, was given a starting role against the Parisians.

The Gunners had a disastrous start as they conceded a goal inside 42seconds after kickoff.

After PSG failed to make the most of the chances they had to increase their lead, Arsenal cashed in in the second half.

Alexis Sánchez got the equalizer for the Gunners, who before now have always recorded impressive results in France.

In some of the other games, Barcelona and Bayern Munich blew their opponents apart in their Match Day 1 fixtures at the Nou Camp and Allianz Arena respectively. While Barcelona hammered Celtic 7-0, Bayern Munich were a bit less ruthless as they beat their Russian opponents FC Rostov 5-0.

Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick in the big win for the Catalan giants while Luis Suarez added a brace. The duo of Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic added a goal each as the Scottish Champions were beaten black and blue on Tuesday.

At the Allianz Arena , Bayern Munich got the flawless start they craved for; beating FC Rostov 5-0

The match involving Kelechi Iheanacho and his Manchester City teammates could not hold owing to bad weather conditions.
