True to the nature of a life-and-death match, both Bayern and PSG entered the game very cautiously. With the advantage of home field as well as the score, Gray Lobster every time he has the ball, deploys very slowly, no need to rush.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the front line, the Ligue 1 champions showed the ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀ on both sides of the wing corridor with the speed of Kylian Mbappe and Hakimi. But their first notable opportunity came from Messi.
In the 25th minute, Nuno Mendes went with a speed ball in the left corridor before passing it back to Messi to enter the penalty area. M10 had the opportunity to face, but goalkeeper Sommer closed the corner in time, making his shot angle significantly limited.
The incident came to PSG when captain Marquinhos was forced to leave the field early due to injury in the 35th minute. The captaincy was then ceded to Mbappe.
Immediately after that situation was a delicious opportunity for the away team. Originating from the confident dribbling situation of goalkeeper Sommer in the penalty area, Hakimi was immediately present to apply pressure. The ball then reached Vitinha’s feet, but unfortunately his shot lacked power and was blocked by De Ligt right in front of the goal line.
In the second half, when PSG had not yet regained the pace, Bayern put the ball into the net. Their former player Choupo-Moting was the one to ʜɪᴛ a shot from close range but it was canceled for offside by Thomas Muller.
But they didn’t have to wait long to celebrate. In the 61st minute, Verratti lost the ball in the penalty area under the pressure of Goretzka and Muller. Choupo-Moting then made no mistake in the face-to-face situation to open the scoring for Bayern.
The advantage of 2 goals was more than enough for the Gray Lobster to play leisurely for the rest of the second half. Meanwhile, coach Galtier then had no tactical impact to change the game.
He caused ᴄᴏɴғᴜsɪᴏɴ when he launched the young player Zaire-Emery even though he still had experienced names like Carlos Soler or Renato Sanches in his hand. The inferior midfield completely makes Mbappe and Messi hungry for the ball, and ultimately helpless.
In the 90th minute, the substitute Gnabry scored the second goal for Bayern to finish PSG. Winning the final 3-0 after two matches, the Gray Lobster won the right to the worthy C1 Cup Quarterfinals. Meanwhile, PSG had the second consecutive year that they were eliminated in the 1/8 round.
General opinion Bayern vs PSG
Bayern Munich, although not in good form in the Bundesliga this season, but when stepping into the “big sea” of the Champions League, they are still boggarts for every team, and the nearest victim is PSG.
To lose 0-1 in the first leg , coach Galtier’s team will be forced to win at the Allianz Arena tonight if they do not want to stop in the round of 16 for the second year in a row.
In ғᴀᴄᴛ, a difference of 1 goal cannot guarantee a ticket to Bayern, which means PSG still has a chance. Although they have to play away, this time they will have a healthy Mbappe, who overpowered the Bayern defense in just 30 minutes in the first leg.
The French superstar is expected to help PSG change the ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ with Bayern tonight. Remember, the last time they marched to the Allianz Arena in 2021, the French team won 3-2, in which Mbappe scored a double.
