Real Madrid were shocked by Paris Saint Germain on Wednesday evening in the Champions League, whilst Valencia produced a superb performance against Chelsea on Tuesday.
Zinedine Zidane’s men flew out to France on Tuesday to prepare for their opening group stage game against a PSG side missing both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
But, Los Blancos had similar problems with a whole host of injury problems which saw Luka Modric and Marco Asensio miss out.
Despite the aforementioned absentees – the game looked an even affair but that was only up until the 14th minute when former Madrid winger Angel di Maria opened the scoring to the delight of the Parc des Princes faithful.
Di Maria would then add a second for the home side just after half hour as Madrid failed to create many clear cut chances.
The game was eventually put to bed when Thomas Meunier scored late on, giving PSG a resounding home victory over a Madrid side, who failed to have a single attempt on goal.
Wednesday would also see Atletico Madrid in action at the Wanda Metropolitano as they hosted a Juventus side boasting Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juan Cuadrado would give the Italian visitors the lead just after half time before French World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi made it 2-0 after the hour mark.
Atleti have a never say die attitude however and goals from Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera saw Diego Simeone’s side pull back an impressive draw.
On Tuesday evening, Valencia thrashed by Barcelona in the league before hand – travelled to England to face Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge outfit were involved in a thrashing of their own at the weekend, beating Wolverhampton Wanderers but they found life tricky against Albert Celaldes’ side.
The only goal of the game came with 16 minutes remaining on the clock as Rodrigo netted, much to the delight of the visiting supporters.
Meanwhile, Barca were in action against Dortmund in Germany but there was very little to write home about during this one – ending 0-0.
Marc Andre ter-Stegen the busier of the two keepers, pulling off a penalty save to deny Marco Reus.
