Paris Saint-Germain outclassed Real Madrid 3-1 in the International Champions Cup in Ohio late Wednesday.

Jonathan Ikone scored the opening goal for PSG in the second minute, only for substitute defender Thomas Meunier to score a brace and make it 3-0 for the Ligue 1 champions in the first half.

Marcelo scored the European champions' lone goal in the first half.

However, PSG received a setback after their captain Thiago Silva was substituted in the tenth minute due to injury.

Real Madrid came back strongly in the second half, but were denied another goal by PSG.

The defeat comes as a shocker to Zinedine Zidane's men, who had defeated Atletico Madrid after a 5-3 penalty shootout in May.

On the other hand, PSG would be upbeat after decimating the Spanish giants, whose tour to the United States began on a losing note.
