During the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal yesterday, Bayern won 0-1 over PSG.
It was, like the first leg, a high-intensity match. Audiences were on the edge of their seats throughout the 90 minutes.
Here are some key moments of the match:
- In the 3rd minute, Kylian Mbappe hit the ball hard, but it flew past the goalpost.
- Both teams made several attempts, but in the case of Bayern, they lacked accuracy to hit the target. Leroy Sane’s shot from distance was also one of inaccuracy.
- In the 28th minute, Mbappe passed to Neymar, who battled with Manuel Neuer. Finally, the German goalkeeper deflected the ball away. The same scenario repeated itself a few minutes later, too. Neymar was very active in general, but, at most, he hit the crossbar and the post.
- In the 40th minute, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the only goal of the match. David Alaba attempted to score but he was blocked by Keylor Navas. But the ball deflected toward Choupo-Moting, who quickly put it past the PSG goalkeeper.
- Now, the Bayern team needed one more goal to advance to the semi-finals but it didn’t arrive. Alaba’s attempt after the interval was deflected off the post.
- In the 53rd minute, Neymar again narrowly missed aiming the ball on the third metre.
- In the 70th minute, Chuopo-Moting almost scored again but Leandro Paredes intervened.
- Mbappe scored in the 78th minute but his goal was disallowed by the referee for being offside. Later, Neuer saved another attempt by PSG. PSG also kept up their defence to disallow another Bayern goal.
So, Bayern won Tuesday’s match as Bayern won 0-1 over PSG. But PSG promoted themselves to the semi-finals based on the aggregate score.
