Kylian Mbappe scored two goals as Paris Saint-Germain created a stunning away performance that defeated title holder Bayern Munich in the thrilling Champions League quarter-final first leg.
This was a meeting between finalists last year, and they both contributed to a very entertaining game that would itself deserve a competitive final.
Mbappe was fed by Neymar and the striker drove through Manuel Neuer’s foot, so it took only three minutes to mark.
Marquinos doubled the lead of the French champion in the middle of the first half, finishing well from Neymar’s excellent ball, and then former PSG striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting headed home and halved the deficit.
Neuer corrected his previous mistake by rejecting Neymar from close range early in the second half. Keylor Navas then blocked strikes from David Arava and Benjaman Pavad at the other end.
However, Bayern Munich continued to put pressure on it, and when Thomas Müller led the header behind the net from Joshua Kimmich’s free kick, it was naturally leveled at the hour mark.
However, Mbappe had the final say as he countered Jerome Boaten’s foot in the second half and gave PSG a third important away goal towards the second foot.
Another big win for Pochettino’s PSG
This was another eye-catching result in Europe after Mauricio Pochettino beat Barcelona 4-1 in the first leg of the last 16 games.
The victory was even more impressive as it happened at Camp Nou, and PSG went back to the European giant’s house for stunning results.
When a visitor confronts Bayern’s relentless attack before choosing them at the pace of Neymar and Mbappe against a team (18 wins) that has not lost any of the last 19 Champions League games. Off during breaks, which produced a tactically amazing display.
The absence of Robert Lewandowski on the Bavarian side definitely helped PSG. The host had 31 goal chances, but nothing should be taken away from Pochettino’s excellent performance, which sets things up well for when they meet in Paris on Tuesday. , April 13th (20:00 BST).
