The Portuguese manager did nothing to help his reputation as one of the most villainous coaches around with his outfit in Russia. A dark jumper with a leather collar that reminded viewers of Star Wars character Darth Vader.

Six for Cavani

The Uruguayan striker joined an exclusive club when he netted PSG’s second. He is now just the fifth player to score in six consecutive Champions League matches after Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marouane Chamakh and Burak Yilmaz.
