Tops / Flops PSG-Bayern: heroic Paris, Bayern misses out


The great collective performance of PSG, the activity of the Paredes-Gueye duo, but also the defensive limits of Bayern: find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of this clash between PSG and Bayern Munich (0- 1).


Paris in the big


This time, we can say it,

 PSG is writing its history

in the Champions League.

After eliminating Barça in the round of 16, the capital club took out Bayern, who had beaten them in the last final.

For this return match, there was intensity, a lot of wasted chances, but above all unfailing solidarity.

Despite the defeat, the Parisians delivered a benchmark match in the fight.

Gueye-Paredes, top level

Who better than this duo to symbolize Parisian strength?

As on the go, Idrissa Gueye released a capital performance.

Harassing the opposing ball carrier, he scratched some precious balloons, especially at the end of the game.

At his side, Leandro Paredes was bluffing and we did not expect him in this register of shadow worker, where his interceptions did good in the midfield.

He also had the concern of relaunching cleanly with his laser passes.

Danilo at the rendezvous

The Portuguese had the heavy task of replacing Marquinhos, usual captain.

And he still did well.

Master in the air, he repelled an incalculable number of balls, thanks to a fairly precise reading of the opposing game.

Winning most of his duels, he largely lived up to the shock.

As is Colin Dagba on his right.

Presnel Kimpembe cannot say the same (see elsewhere).

Di Maria regained legs

It was announced on the decline but Angel Di Maria responded in the best way.

Hard-hitting, the Argentinian did good on the right wing, folding up efficiently but also being interesting to serve as a launching pad.

One evening, he found his legs.


Bayern too limited behind

With the absence of Süle behind and Goretzka in the middle,

Bayern was necessarily weakened

before going to Paris.

And the revised defense rather suffered in the face of the Parisian waves of the first period, in particular Davies and Pavard on the wings and Boateng in the axis.

The Alaba-Kimmich duo also struggled to protect their rearguard and left spaces that Neymar and others could not take advantage of.

Neymar, a mess that almost cost a lot

As in Final 8 last year, Neymar seemed elusive on Tuesday night.

But like last August, the Brazilian wasted a lot of opportunities and could have greatly penalized PSG.

In entry legs, the Parisian number 10 missed no less than 4 clear chances.

After stumbling over Neuer (9th, 28th), he found the amounts twice (37th, 39th).

His last chance even brought Bayern's goal in the next minute.

A real punishment.

Too short on a cross from Di Maria (54th), he tried to beat Neuer (90th + 2) until the end.

But seeing his smile and his rage at the final whistle, there is no doubt that he will quickly forget these failures.

Kimpembe beaten in the duel

Promoted captain in the absence of Marquinhos, the Parisian defender did not breathe serenity.

If he tried to be present in the physical fight, he lost an important duel against Choupo-Moting which led to the Bavarian goal.

An action that does task in the middle of this intense match.

To his credit, he recovered well and was then more diligent in the second half.
