Although only one goal was scored in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Princes Park (Eric Maxim Joop-Morting scored in the 40th minute), the audience certainly cannot complain about the poor level of the game. Therefore, it is no wonder that many observers describe this duel as an untimely final. The first meeting has shown that the finalists of last year’s championship will be at a higher level, and the rematch proved this.
In the first half of the game, the most active player among the Parisians was Neymar. The Brazilian is very close to three times as many goalscorers, but he prevented the goal from being scored, or just had bad luck.
In addition to achieving goals easily, Brazilians are also known for their extraordinary skills and beautiful performance. In the 65th minute, they took a beautiful action with Angel Di Maria, posing a real threat to the Bavarian penalty area. The Argentine passed the ball to Neymar and dropped the ball between the legs of David Alaba. Di Maria kicks the ball with his heel, which adds to the skill of the game. A few seconds later, the Brazilian adopted another technique.
Bayern defender Jerome Boateng (Jerome Boateng) showed his superb skills in defense. After another beautiful move by the Parisian, the German used his heel to calm down and kicked the ball to a corner, thus eliminating the threat from the host.
Despite a 1-0 victory and a 3-3 total, PSG advanced to the semifinals due to better away balance. In the next stage of the game, Mauricio Pochettino (Mauricio Pochettino) will meet with Manchester City double champion Borussia Dortmund (Borussia Dortmund).
