• Bayern Munich knock French Champions Out Of UEFA Champions League With a 3-0 Aggregate win
  • Another Year, Another disappointment for PSG

PSG crash out of UEFA Champions League again as Bayern Munich claim a quarter-final spot with an efficient display that resulted in a 2-0 (3-0) aggregate win for the Bundesliga Champions.

Paris Saint Germain came into the game without Neymar, but a team travelling with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé should have performed better in Bavaria. Bayern started the game nervously, with Kylian Mbappé almost opening the scoring after just two minutes.

The Germans grew into the game, much like what happened two weeks in Paris. Both teams filled the first half with half chances, with Vitinha coming closest after the Portuguese caught Yann Sommer in possession. Summer signing Matthijs de Ligt cleared the goal-bound ball to keep Bayern’s advantage.

Bayern were more calculated in the second half, with Jamal Musiala coming close early on. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s 52nd minute goal was ruled out due to a minimal contact from Thomas Müller, who was half a yard beyond the last defender. The Bavarians were not to be denied minutes later. Muller caught Marco Verratti in possession inside PSG’s box, the German was unselfish enough to tee up Choupo-Moting for a simple finish to open the scoring.

The possibility of a comeback looked bleak from that point on. A couple of headers by Sergio Ramos from corner kicks were the only real threat PSG could cause Bayern.

Serge Gnabry wrapped up the tie with a classic counter-attack goal, thereby stealing PSG’s dream for another year, yet again.

Capturing the Champions League has been PSG’s goal for many years now, and apart from their UCL final appearance in 2020, they have often struggled to make it to the latter stages of the tournament. At the time of the draw many picked the Parisians to overcome Bayern Munich mainly because of their front three and their new midfielders, but they have fallen short once again. It’s back to the drawing board again for the owners of the club who will likely be on the lookout for a new manager that can actualize their dream, just like they did last year
