Paris is qualified thanks to its three goals in the first leg away. He will see the semi-finals of the Champions League at the end of April. Tou



A small defeat but a great qualification.

PSG comes out standing, alive and ready for new conquests of its quarter-final of the Champions League against the defending champion, Bayern Munich.

In August 2020, the Germans had deprived Paris of a first European coronation.

An autumn and a winter later, here is the spring of PSG, ready to push its happiness until the end of the month, at least.

A beginning, a step, a promise rather than a consecration or an outcome.

Now, speed up!

The capital club will never have been eliminated, at any time during these endless 180 minutes against Bayern Munich, leading to the break of the first period (2-1), at the end of the first leg (3-2) , still qualified after the first 45 minutes of the return despite the Bavarian goal (0-1), resisting with courage and a touch of lucidity or madness to a last infernal act.

He has always been at the breaking point, dented all over the place, but never pierced in the heart.

A feat, an improbable magic., A sweetness of the confined world.

Calm, determined, disciplined

For a long time, he missed nothing, or very little.

A bigger size for Neymar, too short after the break, his precision on two attempts on the bar, then the post in the first period.

The game plan was perfect.

Nourished by its lead and three goals scored away, PSG was able to let it come and counter.

He even got emboldened and, when he started to dominate Bayern, he took that backlash, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's second goal out of the Bavarians' three in all.

It was the moment to wonder if we had really lost in the change with the absence of Robert Lewandowski and the tenure of a former Parisian revenge, having fun trampling his ex-partners in a classic of Parisian life.

There is the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysées and the goals of the players who wore the jersey one day for the club in the capital.

It is a necessary step.

We have to be warned, it always has its effect.

Like the Eiffel Tower.

Calm, determined, disciplined, with once again an omnipresent Gana Gueye, multiplied and working for many, the Parisians were betrayed by their realism, this clinical success which had surprised the reigning European champion at the Allianz Arena.

It is as if, in the second game of this confrontation, they had delivered a better performance while losing, forcing them to qualify on a wire.

With this opponent, PSG knows that it will take goals, given the collective strength of the Germans, the permanent and incessant danger embodied by several hot spots.

But he also knew that he would have solutions against or against a defensive axis not very mobile.

It is this second part of the tactical scoreboard that he failed to put in place, making the meeting uncertain and unbreathable to the end for the hearts of supporters reduced to fireworks on the outskirts of the Park. like a message from the barrier world, from a distance.

Now is the time to celebrate as it should.
