Despite an outrageous domination of Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain won an unexpected victory in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (3-2). Driven by the efficiency of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, the capital club is in a very favorable position before the return match scheduled for April 13 in Paris.
The snow falling in large flakes on the lawn of the Allianz Arena on an April evening presaged an irrational scenario from the start. This Wednesday April 7, Paris Saint-Germain will surely thank its lucky star. Cornered in its own camp and dominated by a Bayern Munich who did not wish to put on gloves, Paris Saint-Germain should have lost in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League. But the capital club will leave Bavaria with the scalp of the defending champion (3-2), who remained on a crazy series of 19 matches without defeat in the most prestigious European competition.
Thanks to the incredible efficiency of its two stars Neymar (two assists) and Kylian Mbappé (two goals) as well as his wall Keylor Navas (10 saves), the capital club is in an ideal position before the quarter-final return which will be played at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday 13 April.
