Paris Saint-Germain reached the semifinals of the Champions League on away goals despite a 1-0 second-leg loss to Bayern Munich at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday
The tie, which finished 3-3 on aggregate, was a rematch of last season’s final which Bayern won 1-0 in Portugal last summer.
Midway through the half, PSG turned it on and superstar pair Neymar and Mbappe took center stage with an almost exclusive clinic in attack. The Brazilian hit the woodwork twice as he kicked into a gear rarely seen since his arrival at Parc des Princes while the Frenchman once again tormented Bayern with his searing pace.
Such was the quality of the PSG pair’s play that the likes of Julian Draxer and Idrissa Gueye immediately raised their game and even Colin Dagba from right-back moved up through the gears. Manuel Neuer produced a magnificent save to deny Neymar in front of goal as Mauricio Pochettino’s men replicated Bayern’s first leg display.
