Watch: PSG beats Basel in Champions League on Meunier's absurd volley

Tuesday November 1st, 2016

Thomas Meunier delivered a spectacular first-time volley in the 90th minute Tuesday, lifting PSG to a 2-1 Champions League win over Basel and punching the club's ticket to the knockout stage. 

PSG looked to be settling for a draw, with Blaise Matuidi's opener canceled out by Luca Zuffi in the 76th minute, but that was before Meunier, the Belgian summer signing, had his say. 

With one swift kick from his right foot, he connected perfectly with Adrien Rabiot's pass off the outside of his boot (after calling for the ball, no less), giving PSG the full three points. 

PSG and Arsenal are tied with 10 points atop Group A, and they meet in the penultimate group match, on Nov. 23.
