Watch: PSG and Barcelona each score in first three minutes of the Champions League

The UEFA Champions League is back and we were hardly able to take our seats (or fire up the streams for those still at work) before the goals started flying in. With Barcelona getting a home match against Celtic, many were predicting the Catalans to turn the game into a blowout quickly.

While Barcelona may have been the favorites to score the first goal of the Champions League group stage, the first goal came in Paris, when PSG’s Edison Cavani took advantage of Arsenal deciding to just not play defense just 40 seconds into the game.

Not to be outdone, Lionel Messi and Barcelona didn’t make their fans wait long either, scoring themselves within the first three minutes of the game.

It’s great having the Champions League back.
