Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham “I’m glad I didn’t lose too much”
Munich laughed first in the confrontation between Bayern Munich (Munich) and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), which is called the best’big match’ of the 2022-2023 season European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (CL) Round of 16. Bayern Munich, who won a valuable victory in the enemy camp, had a green light to advance to the quarterfinals for the fourth consecutive season.
Munich won 1-0 in the match against PSG in the first leg of the round of 16 held at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 14th (local time). This confrontation drew attention because it was a meeting between the two teams that met in the 2019-2020 season UCL final. Both teams are in first place in their respective leagues, and were also mentioned as candidates for the championship, and it was also called the ‘preview final’.
In the 7th minute of the second half of the second half, Alfonso Davies’ cross was connected by Kingsley Komang with a right-footed shot, which shook the net.
PSG, which became desperate, aimed to turn the atmosphere around by putting Kylian Mbappe, who had left due to a thigh injury. In the 36th minute of the second half, Mbappe, who received a pass from Nuno Mendes, scored an equalizer, but the goal was canceled as it was found to be offside as a result of video review (VAR).
With this victory, Munich has an advantage in advancing to the quarterfinals for the fourth consecutive season. Even with a draw, they can advance to the quarterfinals. On the other hand, PSG, who lost at home, had to beat Munich. The two teams will play the second leg in Germany on the 8th of next month. Mbappe said, “I knew I could make Munich difficult,” and “I will win the second game and go to the quarterfinals.” 바카라사이트
