Bayern - PSG (2-3): Paris works miracles


The Parisian club achieved a considerable performance by winning (3-2) in Munich in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League, not

It's a light post-game, to whistle at home, asking the questions that we have long contained with PSG.

Yes, it makes you wonder if Keylor Navas is at the moment the best goalkeeper in the world, if Neymar has already displayed such an involvement in Paris with efficiency at the end, if the value of Mbappé does not take 20 million euros in each Champions League match, which could end at the cost of a Leonardo da Vinci, if Paris has finally become a great team whatever its composition, if it will qualify for the semi-final of the League champions.

The face-to-face class is still better.

Quiet !

There is a return match and that is often the problem, at which point the questions turn around like a boomerang that is usually caught in the dark.

In the meantime, it is a certainty, PSG has given itself the right to dream while Bayern had never lost in C 1 this season.

With a Dagba-Danilo-Kimpembe-Bakker defense after the break, the capital club had little chance of maintaining their lead, their 2-0 acquired in 28 minutes and already chipped away by a goal from Choupo-Moting, with Paris confirming that 'he is still betrayed by his exes.

It would be a clandestine dinner, there would be caviar, champagne and lobsters

With three usual non-holders in the back line, a baroque tinkering made inevitable because of two injuries during the match (Marquinhos and Diallo) and the problem of the right-back, or covid (Florenzi) or impossible (Kehrer), Paris did what they could during a sublime, dense, rich match, advancing at the rate of several reversals.

Goals galore, repeated injuries, major players at the rendezvous, especially in Paris: Neymar and Mbappé.

It would be a clandestine dinner, there would be caviar, champagne and lobsters to sum up what we saw, perhaps even bigger than the performance in Barcelona.

We were invited to the European champion anyway, whose decline nobody had announced, even for one evening.

Look no further, everything is explained.

The apathy of PSG in the league?

The European obsession has swallowed up desires, motivation, energy.

It is the story of a club which went to the final of the Champions League in 2020, which took a phew to live this epic reduced to a final tournament in Lisbon and which would give all the gold in the world to relive this magic, those football moments where life turns upside down, theirs, in an outburst of hearts, a tachycardia of feelings and hopes.

Gold at PSG often comes out of Neymar's feet, two assists to start, including one for Kylian Mbappé, another amazing round world.

The crack of Bondy has once again become the man who scores in every chopper match in the Champions League - three in the first leg, one in the return against Barcelona before Munich - as in 2017 before leaving Monaco.

He had fallen in the semifinals (by “forgetting” his goal in the first leg against Juventus), which reminds us that our affair smells good.

We are not there yet.

There will be a return from Tuesday to the Parc des Princes, a place where PSG looks as much like Dijon as itself.

This time, it will be necessary to choose well.
