Paris: Angel Di Maria started repaying his massive transfer fee as he scored the opening goal of the new Champions League season for Paris Saint-Germain against Malmo on Tuesday.

Di Maria scored in the fourth minute after collecting a pass form Italy midfielder Marco Verratti.

It was the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star`s first goal in his third appearance for PSG.
