Paris Saint-Germain topped Real Madrid 3-1 on Thursday in the International Champions Cup at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
While the matchup between two of the world’s top clubs was notable, the fans that packed the Horsehoe stole the show. The contest drew a record crowd — 86,641 — for a soccer match in Ohio, eclipsing the previous mark (35,061) set less two weeks ago when FC Cincinnati hosted Crystal Palace of the English Premier League at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati.
Real Madrid, the European champions, were making their preseason debut. PSG, the French champions, were playing their third preseason match. Thomas Meunier scored twice to pace PSG.
