Di Maria scores 2 as PSG beats Madrid

PARIS — With two first-half goals from Angel Di Maria and a late strike by Thomas Meunier, a new-look Paris Saint-Germain missing stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe beat Real Madrid 3-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday to go top of Group A in an impressive start to its European campaign.

Di Maria, a Champions League winner with Madrid in 2014, was rampant against his former club.

The Argentine's opener poked past Thibaut Courtois' near post in the 14th minute was his 25th goal in 100 European matches.

Di Maria doubled the lead when he struck again in the 33rd minute with a left-foot shot from outside the area.

Gareth Bale thought he'd pulled one back moments later with a sweet volley over former Madrid teammate Keylor Navas, now in the Paris goal. But referee Anthony Taylor spotted on video replay that the Wales winger handled the ball.

Meunier got PSG's third goal in second-half injury time.

Olympiakos holds Tottenham 2-2

ATHENS, Greece — If Tottenham wants to repeat its run to the Champions League final, coach Mauricio Pochettino knows his players have to learn a lesson from Wednesday's group opener.

Tottenham gave up a two-goal lead and had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Olympiakos in a disappointing start to its European campaign.

Harry Kane scored a clinical penalty in the 26th minute after being carelessly brought down by Yassine Meriah, and Lucas Moura made it 2-0 four minutes later with a strike from 20 meters (yards). But the Greek side was level early in the second half.

"I think, to be honest, that we didn't deserve to go 2-0 up since we hadn't found a way to stop them," Pochettino said. "What disappointed me is that we didn't manage that 2-0 (advantage) property ... I think our performance wasn't the best."

Spurs thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 at the weekend, but Pochettino said his team couldn't reach the same level in Greece.

"They didn't show the same aggression and focus and we conceded too many chances," he said.

Olympiakos winger Daniel Podence troubled the visitors all evening, testing goalkeeper Hugo Lloris early and later setting up Miguel Angel Guerrero who hit the bar with a low strike. But Podence finally found the net before the break after exchanging passes with Mathieu Valbuena, who then leveled from the penalty spot in the 54th minute.

"We got ourselves in a great position but obviously, the goal before the first half changed the momentum," Kane said. (Getting) two goals away from home that's not bad, but overall we're disappointed because this is the kind of game we'd want to be winning."

Tottenham, which lost the Champions League final to Liverpool last season, brought on Son Heung-min for the last 17 minutes but the South Korean produced little threat on the left.

Olympiakos returned to the Champions League after a year's absence but sorely missed striker Kostas Fortounis, out with a knee injury, and defender Pape Abou Cisse who has influenza.

But Ruben Semedo returned to fitness and paid tribute to his teammates.

"Every player wants to be in the Champions League, and so do I. So we spare no effort and that worked for us," he said. "I think the result was fair for us and it came from very hard work."

Coach Pedro Martins said his club remains the outsider in a group that also includes Bayern and Red Star Belgrade.

"There are two favorites in this group and that hasn't changed," Martins said. "But we are Olympiakos and we have a mentality of wanting more. We showed heart tonight and character. There are not many teams that can back from a 2-0 deficit to Tottenham."

Bayern beats Red Star 3-0

MUNICH — Bayern Munich substitute Thomas Müller provided a late highlight as the German powerhouse beat Red Star Belgrade 3-0 in their Champions League opener on Wednesday.

Müller came on for Philippe Coutinho in the 83rd minute and scored in the first minute of injury time when he ran behind the visiting defense and spun around to volley Thiago Alcantara's lobbed free kick past goalkeeper Milan Borjan.

It was Müller's 106th appearance in the Champions League, making the 30-year-old Bayern's most capped player in the competition.

Robert Lewandowski had already sealed the result after striking from close range in the 80th, but it had been shaping up to be a frustrating evening for the Poland striker, who missed several chances after Kingsley Coman opened the scoring in the 34th.

"We had the whole game under control, but we had many chances and didn't make the most of them," Lewandowski said. "In the end it was only three goals, not five or six."

Bayern failed to turn almost total possession in the first half into clear-cut scoring opportunities.

Marko Marin, Red Star's playmaker and a former German international, went closest for the visitors in a rare attack when he shot just wide of the far post before Lewandowski scored.

Even Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was off his best as he misjudged a simple back-pass and was forced to clear in the 13th.

Making his first start for Bayern, Coutinho nearly scored a stunning opener on his Champions League debut for the side but his well-struck volley flew just over the bar.

"He had a great game," Bayern coach Niko Kovac said of the Brazilian. "He brings another dimension to our game when he's on the ball."

Coman finally broke the deadlock by heading in Ivan Perisic's cross.

Coutinho also had a goal ruled out for offside, and Lewandowski went close with a free kick after the break, before Borjan made a brilliant save to deny Perisic.

Perisic again went close midway through the half when he controlled the ball on his chest and lobbed the goalkeeper, only to see the effort come back off the crossbar. Lewandowski missed the rebound with the goal at his mercy, but finally struck after the visitors failed to clear.

Tottenham drew 2-2 at Olympiakos in the other Group B game.

Atlético gets late equalizer in 2-2 draw against Juventus

MADRID — Héctor Herrera scored in the 90th minute as Atlético Madrid salvaged a 2-2 draw against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo was held scoreless in his return to Madrid, but Juventus was able to open a 2-0 lead with goals by Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi in the second half.

Sefan Savic pulled Atlético closer in the 70th and Herrera got the equalizer with a late header.

In the other group match, Lokomotiv Moscow won 2-1 at Bayer Leverkusen.

Club Brugge, Galatasaray draw 0-0

BRUGES, Belgium — Club Brugge and Galatasaray drew 0-0 in their Champions League opener on Wednesday, having to settle for a point each in Group A where Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are favored to advance.

Both teams had shots hit the top of the crossbar, from Brugge defender Federico Ricca in the first half and Galatasaray midfielder Sofiane Feghouli in the 61st minute.

The Turkish champion came close in the first half when Ryan Babel forced a good save from Brugge goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who got a Champions League winner's medal last season as a Liverpool substitute.

Brugge, which advanced through two qualifying rounds as the first Belgian league runner-up to reach the group stage, is still unbeaten in 11 games this season.

Galatasaray ended a five-game losing streak in Champions League away games, though has now failed to score in five straight on the road.

PSG was hosting 13-time champion Madrid in a later kickoff Wednesday. In the next round on Oct. 1, Brugge travels to Madrid and Galatasaray hosts PSG.

Orsic hat trick helps Dinamo Zagreb end 11-match losing run

ZAGREB, Croatia — Mislav Orsic scored a hat trick Wednesday as Dinamo Zagreb ended an 11-match losing streak in the Champions League group stage with a 4-0 win over Atalanta, which was making its competition debut.

Orsic's first was a low shot from the edge of the area after the half-hour mark. Eleven minutes later, he had an uncontested header. Then he completed the hat trick midway through the second half by beating the offside trap and using one touch before striking into the far corner.

The 26-year-old Orsic, who also scored three goals in Champions League qualifying, recently made his international debut with Croatia.

Marin Leovac opened the scoring by redirecting in a cross from close range.

Manchester City won 3-0 at Shakhtar Donetsk in the other Group C opener.

Croatian champion Dinamo was in danger of matching Anderlecht's record of 12 straight losses in the competition between 2003 and 2005.

Atalanta qualified by finishing a club-record third in Serie A.
