Munich / Sevilla – The Paris Saint Germain footballers won the opening quarterfinals of the Champions League at Bayern Munich 3: 2 and partially retaliated with a 0: 1 defeat from last year’s final. Striker Kylian Mbappé took care of two goals. The Bavarian team did not take advantage of the advantage, because it clearly overshot the opponent 31: 6. Chelsea, who succeeded on a neutral field in Seville against Porto 2-0, also followed the procedure. Retaliation is scheduled for April 13.
Maurizio Pochettin’s charges had a great start to the match in Munich and after only 149 seconds they took the lead thanks to Mbappé. The French striker scored the fastest goal in the elimination phase of the Champions League since 2010 and also the 26th in the Champions League.
Less than half an hour passed and the guests struck a second time. This time, for another great pass, Neymarov ran behind the defense of Marquinhos and increased the lead of the Parisians. However, PSG captain soon had to take turns due to injury.
Bayern, who again had to deal with the absence of gunner Lewandowski, came across a reliable goalkeeper Navas for a long time. In the first half, he sent six shots to his goal, however, the last one was successful: Choupo-Moting, who headed through the center of Pavard, pushed through the center.
In the second half, the guests were able to prevail again at first, but Neuer struck well against Neymar. Otherwise, the reigning champions were more active. Both against Alab’s shot and Pavard’s next attempt, a reliable Navas intervened. The home Costa Rican goalkeeper was overcome only after an hour of play, when Müller jumped on a direct kick and equalized with his 48th goal in the 123rd match of the Champions League.
But even that was not enough for Bayern. Guests crowned the efficiency 22 minutes before the end. Mbappé converted PSG’s fourth shot into a goal into a third goal. He himself scored the eighth hit this year. Bayern didn’t get anything out of the final pressure and despite 12 shots on goal he lost in the Champions League for the first time after 19 matches. On the contrary, PSG broke the four-match waiting for a triumph on the field of German teams.
Chelsea is also taking a promising result in retaliation. Porto, the conqueror of Juventus, started in the first part of Mason Mount and at the age of 22 and 87 days he became the youngest scorer of the “Blues” in the elimination phase of the Champions League. Five minutes before the end, after a mistake in the defense of the Portuguese team, Chilwell sealed the victory. Chelsea have not lost to Porto for the sixth time in the last seven matches.
