Neymar Denied By The Woodwork Thrice And Bayern Took Lead

After a slightly slower start to the game than in the first leg, Neymar led the PSG attack. The Brazilian was denied by the woodwork three times and in response, Choupo-Moting scored after getting first to a rebound in the box.

The first leg between PSG and Bayern Munich proved to be the most exciting of all the first legs and the second leg, after a slowish start, did not disappoint either.

Neymar was the one who came the closest for the Parisian outfit. The Brazilian attacker was at the heart of all PSG’s attacks and he saw a shot tipped onto the post by Manuel Neuer after 34 minutes.

Three minutes later, Di Maria’s free-kick was only half-cleared by Kimmich to Neymar, the Brazilian cut inside and then saw his strike come back off the crossbar.

Then, just moments later, Neymar completed his hat-trick of woodwork strikes. Mbappe squared for Neymar and his strike came back off the base of Neuer’s left hand post. Neymar missed three opportunities and PSG were made to pay for their missed chances.

Just 40 seconds later, Coman went down the left hand side, Alaba’s shot was saved by Navas, the ball looped up in the air and Choupo-Moting headed the rebound into the goal.

That goal lifted Bayern and meant they were just one goal away from going through to the Champions League semi-finals. PSG deserved to be in front, but, just like in the first leg, the better team fell behind.
