This Wednesday at the Allianz Arena, the rain of snow made the game they played even more epic Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain for the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Really, a great game.
Two minutes into the game, after a save by Keylor Navas and a crossbar in the Parisian goal, Kylian Mbappé opened the scoring after a counterattack commanded by Neymar, who gave him the ball to define first. If Manuel Neuer could have had a better reaction? Yes, that for sure.
Before half an hour of play, Neymar reappeared and again with an assist: after a center rejected by the Bavarian last line, the winger put in a spectacular left-handed pass and Marquinhos defined as if he were a center forward. A minute after scoring 2-0, the captain requested the change due to a muscle injury.
Before halftime, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who lost the final of the last edition as a PSG player, appeared to fulfill the famous “Law of the Ex” and marked the discount for Bayern Munich. At the start of the second half, Thomas Müller tied for a header after a great cross from Benjamin Pavard.
However, minutes after the German scorer’s draw, Mbappé reappeared in the Bavarian area: he faced Jerome Boateng, who had entered for Niklas Süle, and hit him between his legs to mark the 3-2 partial. Thus, the visit endured the result thanks to Keylor Navas saves and won the first duel.
