PSG-Bayern (0-1): Mbappé reaches his goal without scoring


Author of a double in the first leg, the Parisian striker did not manage to deceive Neuer this time, but he achieved a rich and complete match.

The whole of Europe praised his performance in the first leg and his double in Munich.

But Kylian Mbappé did not intend to stop there and he expected a lot from this meeting at the Parc des Princes to continue his journey to the summits with Paris.

Bondy's child, in search of a possible Golden Ball at the end of this year, did not hide his ambition at the kickoff.

For his 35th Champions League match with Paris, Mbappé had a rich but terribly frustrating first period, like that of Neymar that we saw, accomplice, come and take him by the shoulder during a time out to take stock of their battle plan.

Unfortunately therefore, it is a succession of offside sometimes valid, but also illegitimately reported, which will come to dot the first period of Mbappé.

At first, he blamed himself for not having better managed his ball calls in the back of the defense, as he likes to do so.

But he especially deplored the rapid but inaccurate report by the linesman of an offside on a magnificent pass from Di Maria, which should have resulted in a face-to-face with Neuer (32nd).

Upon returning from the locker room for the second period, the tricolor world champion again asked the Italian referee Mr. Orsato the reasons for such a rush.

Present in the effort

If Neymar did not stop touching the post, Mbappé chained his side the technical gestures of class.

Passing of the legs against Pavard, passing behind inspired for the Brazilian, openings for Di Maria: the Parisian striker has often been altruistic, to the delight of those who sometimes deplore his stubbornness in carrying the ball.

Also present in the effort and the defensive withdrawal, Mbappé had, at the end of the match, the opportunity to score his 9th goal of the season in the competition.

But, launched by Neymar, he was once again reported offside for a few millimeters, this time after having deceived Neuer (78th).

In the process, he was still spinning towards the German goal, but he was caught on the wire by Hernandez (79th).

Frustrating, but inconsequential.

At 22, he will play in the semi-finals of the Champions League for the third time in his career and continues to write his legend.
