It only took 24 minutes for Bristol to open the scoring though Mark Sykes who was fortunate to see his tame shot go past Angus Gunn after Cameron Pring threaded in a neat through ball.

Kenny McLean got onto the referee’s book a minute after the half hour mark as Bristol went into the half time break with the slender 1-0 win.

Norwich huffed and puffed in the second half but could not find a way past Bristol who held on for the 1-0 win to that saw them ascend to 13th on the log and just seven points off the playoffs slots.

The 2017 league champions had a bright start to the game and broke the deadlock after just four minutes of action when Aleksandr Golovin fired the ball home from close range.

Rocked by the tough start to the game, PSG soaked in the second in the 18th minute when Wissam Ben Yedder who turned provider in the first goal dubbed their lead.

PSG however steadied their ship and pulled one back in the 39th minute through Warren Zaire-Emery who tapped home a pass across the face of goal from Juan Benart.

Monaco however restored their two-goal cushion in the first minute of the opening half added time through that man again Wissam Ben Yedder as they went into the break with the 3-1 lead.

Despite wave after wave of PSG pressure in the second half, the resolute Monaco defense stood tall at whatever was thrown at them to claim the win.
