It was the most attractive duel of all the quarter-final matches and it did not disappoint anyone. The snow that devastated the Allianz Arena only sweetened the visual spectacle they offered us.
The initial premise of the match was clear, Bayern showed their fang and every blow Keylor stopped or the lack of local success, PSG returned it with goals.
After two minutes, Choupo Moting, who started against Robert Lewandoski’s injury, ran into the crossbar and a minute later Mbappé resolved a counter led by Neymar. His shot, somewhat bitten, slipped into Neuer’s hands.
But Bayern did not seem to affect him, he besieged Keylor Navas’ goal after the 0-1. Müller had the best on a loose shot in the small area. PSG, comfortable with spaces, would score again. But Draxler’s goal for offside by Mbappé would be invalidated.
A header from Goretzka would also not see a goal and Choupo Moting would not go well to a Kimmich corner kick when the goal was already called. A minute later, Marquinhos would teach Bayern with a goal after a spectacular pass from Neymar behind the defense.
Then the gale of Bayern occasions would arrive that did not cease in their efforts until they saw the door. Choupo Moting headed a goal from Pavard’s right and revitalized the Bavarian options.
In the second half, Müller would equalize with a set piece taking advantage of a perfect cross from Kimmich and Mbappe scored his eighth goal in this edition of the Champions League after facing Boateng and straining it to the short post of Neuer to completely despair those of Flick.
No matter how hard Bayern tried, they would not pierce Keylor Navas’ goal any more. 31 Bayern shots, 12 of them on target weren’t enough for PSG’s lethal punch that with 4 shots between the three suits took the triumph of the Allianz.
El Bayern nor lost in the Champions League since March 2019 when he did it in the round of 16 against Liverpool 1-3.
