Matchday 2 of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League took place on Tuesday night with the first half of games completed around Europe.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain produced a fine attacking display to get the better of Barcelona 3-2 at Parc des Princes to move outright top of the Group F table.
Blaise Mautidi put PSG further in front early in the second half with a neat finish before Neymar soon gave Luis Enrique's Barcelona hope with a lovely side-footed volley but in the end they were unable to find a =n equaliser.
In the other Group F fixture, Gustavo Manduca's penalty just after the half-hour mark gave APOEL Nicosia a share of the points at home with Ajax who had Lucas Andersen to thank for their 28th-minute opener.
In Group E, Francesco Totti became the oldest player to score in the Champions League (at 38) when he raced onto a through ball from Radja Nainggolan to produce a deft chip over Joe Hart to cancel out Sergio Aguero's early penalty against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The Blues are outright top in their group after Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's 56th-minute leveler gave Schalke a 1-1 draw with NK Maribor who are now equal on two points with the Germans.
And in Group H, Jackson Martinez netted two very late goals as FC Porto rescued a point in forcing a 2-2 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk while BATE Borisov caused somewhat of an upset by beating Athletic Bilbao 2-1 at home.
