Tops / Flops Bayern-PSG: Mbappé still at the top of Europe, Neuer less imperial


Mbappé's double, Neymar's assists, Navas' parades, but also Neuer's little blunder: find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of this clash between Bayern Munich and PSG (2- 3).


After Camp Nou, Mbappé found a new garden

Author of a fabulous hat-trick at Camp Nou two months ago,

 Kylian Mbappé still marked the spirits

with a match full of opportunism on the lawn of the Allianz- Arena.

Positioned at the forefront, the attacker enjoyed rushing into space.

Rather quickly scorer (3rd) on a badly repelled shot by Neuer, he encouraged the Bavarian defenders to remain on their guard by his often sharp calls.

If he fell in the second half, he was able to be effective by adjusting Neuer on a well-placed shot while his team suffered in large widths.

He confirms his status as a decisive man in the Champions League this season.

Navas, still a rock

If he conceded two goals on which he can not do much, Keylor Navas has yet released a capital performance.

The Costa Rican doorman made no less than 10 stops!

While PSG suffered a total of 31 shots, he was able to reassure his defense in the many weak times crossed by his team.

Solid and concentrated to the end, he kept the Parisian house afloat.

Neymar, decisive paw kicks

Not yet at 100% of his means, Neymar still managed to be doubly decisive in this match.

With two top player assists.

Finding Mbappé perfectly from the start (3rd), he delivered a magnificent opening for Marquinhos in the back of a disconcerted German defense (28th).

Hit in the adductors, he wanted to stay on the lawn and was less impactful after the break.

Gueye, precious in the middle

If he is not the greatest technician of the team, Idrissa Gueye was still very useful at the Allianz-Arena.

Covering a lot of ground on the width, the Senegalese recovered a good number of balls in an area dominated by Bayern.

Paris was expected in the midfield fight and its activity has been good.

Tireless, he was invaluable in the last minutes when it was necessary to resist.

Parisians' trip to Munich


Neuer, symbol of the defensive wanderings of Bayern

Usually so irreproachable,

Manuel Neuer was pushed to the fault against PSG


On his 1st goal conceded, he thus badly repelled Mbappé's strike while he was on the trajectory.

Powerless on the other two Parisian achievements, he was not at the party.

Like his defense.

Injuries that upset the German club

Bayern had to quickly review its plans in the first period with the outings on injury of Goretzka and Süle.

Two significant absences which inevitably weakened the defensive sector with a Boateng often in difficulty in the axis.

The Bavarians have generally not been able to master the Parisian counters.

Paris will still have to whip on the return

This success seems miraculous given the number of situations conceded by PSG.

And in six days, at the Parc des Princes, the club of the capital will have to ensure more its revivals.

Because Pochettino's men only suffered in this match because of many losses of ball, especially in the middle.

The exit of Marquinhos on injury notably disturbed Paris in the first period, even if Danilo held up the shock in central defense with multiple balls pushed back from the head.

But the presence of Verratti and Paredes on the return will surely be appreciated to resist Bayern more and get more attacking situations.
