David Ospina was given the nod over Petr Cech to start Arsenal’s first Champions League game of the season and justified his selection with a spellbinding performance against Paris Saint-Germain.

 

Arsene Wenger opted to go for his second-choice goalkeeper David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech for Arsenal’s Champions League opener against French side PSG. After conceding a goal in the first minute of the game, the Colombian was unbeatable between the sticks for the rest of the game.
