Commentary

That's all for tonight, once again thanks for joining us! 
A slow start from Emery's men and Ludogorets were definitely buoyed by the occasion. However, the class told in the end and PSG take all three points back to France ahead of another busy week for them before the international break. 
FULL-TIME - That's it, PSG come back from behind to grab all three points in this UEFA Champions League clash. A first-half strike from Matuidi and two second-half goals from Edinson Cavani are enough tonight. 
J. Augustin
E. Cavani
PSG
After scoring twice, Cavani is brought off to get his round of applause from the travelling fans, with Jean-Kévin Augustin coming on for the final few minutes. 
C. Keșerü
Wanderson
Ludogorets
Wanderson's night finally comes to an end and he is replaced by Claudiu Keșerü.
J. Ikoné
Á. Di María
PSG
Di Maria gets a short rest and his replacement is Jonathan Ikone.
Ludogorets try to produce a late rally but Jody Lukoki can only shoot over the bar but the home crowd still cheer on what has been a special night for the club. 
The pace of this game has really slowed down, looks like both teams are ready for the full-time whistle. Even the home crowd have gone quiet. 
G. Krychowiak
M. Verratti
PSG
Emery decides to give Italy international Marco Verratti a rest and former Sevilla man Grzegorz Krychowiak enters the field of play.
PSG win a free-kick around 25 yards out and Di Maria takes it. Stoyanov is alert to the danger though and gets a strong hand to it and it's cleared for a throw-in.
As we approach full-time, PSG now look really comfortable in this Group A clash. Emery's men are under less pressure and are knocking the ball about nicely. Ludogorets do look tired but it has been a great effort from them so far. 
J. Lukoki
V. Misidjan
Ludogorets
After a busy night, Virgil Misidjan is given a well-earned rest and replaced by Jody Lukoki.
For the first time in a while, Ludogorets get the ball down the left and find a way through. The ball falls to Jonathan Cafu but he can only fire the ball into Areola's hands. 
What a miss from Matuidi, Cavani turns provider this time and plays a simple ball across the box. However, Matuidi somehow shoots wide despite just having the goalkeeper to beat.
Cavani nearly grabs his third of the night but he cannot keep his shot down after spinning inside the penalty area. Still plenty of time for him to grab his hat-trick though. 
Lucas Moura
Assist
PSG
Lovely run down the right from Lucas Moura and the midfielder lays the chance on a plate for Cavani. 
E. Cavani
Goal
PSG
GOALLLLLLL - PSG stun the home side with a brilliant counter attack. Moura breaks free down the right and Cavani is there in support before finding space and placing the ball into the back of the net. That silences the home crowd just minutes after the missed penalty.

Ludogorets PENALTY MISSED - Chaos in the PSG area sees Marcelino break free, his shot is blocked but the midfielder is then brought down after a clumsy challenge from Thiago Motta. Cosmin Moti steps up but his poor penalty is saved down low by Areola. 
T. Motta
Yellow Card
PSG
Motta with a clumsy challenge and the penalty is given.

Blaise Matuidi is shown a card after leaving his foot in. 
Jonathan Cafú
Yellow Card
Ludogorets
Jonathan Cafu is into the book after speaking back to the referee following a sloppy challenge.
E. Cavani
Goal
PSG
GOAL - Another moment of class gives PSG the lead. Costly free-kick to give away from Ludogorets and Di Maria floats the ball in and Cavani heads it home past the keeper.
Á. Di María
Assist
PSG
Angel Di Maria floats the ball in and his cross is inch-perfect for Cavani.
Home crowd are starting to voice their opinions towards the referee. They feel they should have had two penalties but a free-kick is rewarded to PSG with Di Maria to take.
CHANCE - PSG carve open the Ludogorets defence on the edge of the box but the ball falls to Di Maria and he can only fire straight at Stoyanov. Seconds later he is played in again but this time he drags it well wide, with the ball nearly hitting the corner flag.
Another penalty claim from PSG, this time from a free-kick from the right. Marquinhos is the man that goes down but the referee is having none of it once again.
Natanael Pimienta
Yellow Card
Ludogorets
Natanael is now shown a yellow card after following through on Aurier. 
Much slower start to the second-half so far but Di Maria tries to stop that with a superb turn and shot. The Argentinian finds space on the edge of the area but his smart run is not rewarded as the ball flies past the far post.
Back underway, Ludogorets will kick this second-half off. 
Emery will be disappointed with how his team started the contest and they seemed to struggle with the pressure both from the field and from the crowd. For Ludogorets, they will surely continue with their style in the second-half although tiredness could be an issue in the closing stages. 
HALF-TIME - The ref calls time on what has been an entertaining first-half of football. Ludogorets have battled hard and deserved their lead but the class from PSG eventually told thanks to that Matiuidi finish. 
S. Dyakov
Yellow Card
Ludogorets
Svetoslav Dyakov goes into the book after following through on Marco Verratti. Strong challenge but seemed to slow down as he made contact. 
B. Matuidi
Goal
PSG
GOALLL - Finally the breakthrough comes for PSG. Matuidi is played in down the left and he keeps his composure before slotting the ball past Stoyanov in the Ludogorets goal. Claims for offside but great run from the Frenchman.
M. Verratti
Assist
PSG
Marco Verratti claims the assist after finding a pocket of space on the edge of the box and calmly playing it through down the left.
PENALTY SHOUT - PSG pile on the pressure as Aurier has a shot, it falls to Lucas Moura and his floating cross is destined for Cavani but the referee ignores his claims despite an apparent push.
Emery's men have enjoyed plenty of freedom down the left but every cross seems to be finding a Ludogorets shirt, the French giants may be in for a stern talking to at half-time. 
Silva is the latest to try his luck this time from a corner. The cross from the right-hand side finds the centre-back but he cannot adjust his body and he can only head over the bar. 
Much better from PSG and Moura and that gets Emery on his feet and applauding. The Brazilian finds space around 20 yards out and has a go, but his shot is dragged wide of the far post. Something to build on though. 
Di Maria has been very busy so far but the likes of Moura and Cavani have hardly tested the defence. Emery will want his midfield to improve before half-time, but Ludogorets are enjoying themselves here on the big stage. 
Half chance for Ludogorets as Wanderson is played into space down the left. The Brazilian looks to the far post and his cross finds Virgil Misidjan who can only head it straight to Alphonse Areola. 
That goal has not unsettled Emery's men, they are stil piling forward but Di Maria wastes another chance. The former Manchester United man is played in through the middle but he produces a tame effort and that is an easy save for Vladislav Stoyanov.
PSG nearly respond straight away as Angel Di Maria springs the offside trap but the winger cannot find a team-mate with his cross. 
Natanael Pimienta
Goal
Ludogorets
WHAT A GOAL - Natanael Pimienta is the hero after a beautiful free-kick. PSG give the ball away from a corner, Thiago Motta makes the foul and Natanael makes him pay from the edge of the box. 
Home crowd show their support for midfielder Anicet Andrianantenaina despite his effort flying over the top of the bar after a good team move.
Ludogorets just struggling to break PSG down in the final third but the home side are certainly fighting hard and making it hard for the Ligue 1 champions. 
After a slow start, PSG now starting to pin Ludogorets in their own-half but the home side have everyone behind the ball and that is making life difficult. 
Great chance for PSG - Lucas Moura disposses Jose Palomino and the ball falls to Edinson Cavani but the striker cannot curl it into the top-right corner.
Ludogorets are now settling down and trying to play inside the PSG half, but left-back Maxwell has stopped them in their tracks on two occasions. 
Pretty lively start so far in this Group A clash, both sides have had the ball on the deck and tried to play football, nervous start for both though. 
PSG get this game underway as the home crowd get behind their team from the off. 
The teams are in the tunnel and we're almost ready for kick-off, these two sides have never met before so it promises to be a special night for those in attendance.
Emery also makes two changes, both in midfield as Marco Verratti and Thiago Motta replace Grzegorz Krychowiak and Adrien Rabiot.
Dermendzhiev makes two changes from that 5-1 win over Vereya, with Vladislav Stoyanov and Natanael Pimienta coming into the side for Milan Borjan and Lucas Sasha.
SUBS: Trapp, Pastore, Meunier, Kurzawa, Krychowiak, Augustin, Ikone.
PSG (4-3-3): Areola, Aurier, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Maxwell, Verratti, Motta, Matuidi, Di Maria, Cavani, Moura.
SUBS: Borjan, Lucas Sasha, Gustavo Campanharo, Juninho Quixada, Keseru, Plastun, Lukoki.

Despite being the bigger name, Paris Saint-Germain come into this Champions League clash in disappointing form, after winning just two of their last five matches. Unai Emery will be looking for a response after his side lost 2-0 to Toulouse last weekend. 
Ludogorets come into this game in fine form and they are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions. They beat Vereya 5-1 last time out and boss Georgi Dermendzhiev will be hopeful that his side can produce a spirited display against top qualify opposition. 
Hello and welcome to our live text commentary from the Stadion Vasil Levski where Ludogorets will take on Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
