Paris Saint-Germain 2020-21 UEFA Champions League, Quarterfinals football match


ESPN FC’s Craig Burley recaps the entertaining first leg between Bayern Munich and PSG.


Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Bayern Munich in a thrilling first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal tie in Munich on Wednesday.

Mbappe’s goals bracketed strikes from Marquinhos, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller to give the defending champions — who were without star striker Robert Lewandowski — a steep hill to climb for the return leg in Paris next week.

– Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S.


PSG went ahead just three minutes after the opening whistle with a quick counter-attack that the excellent Mbappe finished off after Neymar rolled the ball into his path on the right.

The visitors had the goal in the net in the 12th minute through Julian Draxler but the side judge rightly ruled Mbappe offside in the build up.

PSG went two goals in front after 28 minutes when Marquinhos settled and stroked home from a smart Neymar pass that caught the Bayern back line out of position.

Bayern, who’d peppered PSG with shots all night, got a deserved goal through Choupo-Moting in the 37th minute, and tied the game in the 60th minute with a characteristic Muller header in the box.

Mbappe, though, put the Parisians ahead for good eight minutes later with a fine individual effort from another counter-attack — the World Cup winner cutting in from the left and beating Manuel Neuer at the near post.

The goals marked the young France international’s seventh in the Champions League knockout stages, passing Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the most in PSG history.

The brace — his third in the UCL knockouts — also tied Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland for the second most by a player before turning 23 in the competition’s history.

Lionel Messi had four such games.

“It was a difficult game against the best team in Europe right now,” Mbappe said after the match.

“But it is just the first game.(Next week) we have to play with confidence and play again like a team.”

“It was a superb team performance above all and I benefited from that.

We suffered, but we suffered as a team.”

Bayern’s Muller rued the number of missed chances after the game.

“We should have scored far more goals,” Mueller said.

“Of course, we can talk about conceding goals but if you win 6-3 or 5-3 then no one can complain.”

“If we had shown the killer instinct that characterises us then it would have been a different game.”

Manuel Neuer — Goalkeeper

Bottled the first goal by trying to outsmarting Mbappe.

Was let down by his defense on all three goals in the lead up to the strike.

A night to forget for him. Rating: 4

Lucas Hernandez — Defender

Decent but nothing more.

Had a couple tackles, but his balls going forward weren’t all that great.

Had trouble with PSG’s speed, as did everybody else. Rating: 4

David Alaba — Defender

His positioning was horrendous at times, having to try and sprint back on both first-half goals.

Really should have scored late, missing a golden chance just wide of the post. Rating: 4

Niklas Sule — Defender

Asleep at the wheel all night long.

He’s slow to begin with, but Franklin the turtle would beat him in a race.

He was just torn to shreds and failed to react even at a below-average rate.

He was horrific. Rating: 1

Benjamin Pavard — Defender

Solid and nearly scored in the first half, while having other decent looks as well in the second.

Most of the action in attack wasn’t down his flank.

Did get an assist. Rating: 6.5

Leon Goretzka — Midfielder

Boy did he waste a lovely chance in front of goal that will give him nightmares.

He really never got involved too much before coming off with what seemed to be an injury. Rating: 5

Joshua Kimmich — Midfielder

A bright spot with some lovely balls into the box.

Does everything well and recorded a fine assist in this one.

Will be key in the second leg if Bayern are to come back. Rating: 7

Thomas Muller — Attacking midfielder (⚽ 60′)

Did miss an absolutely golden opportunity in the first half but got his team an important goal on the hour-mark with a fine header.

He would have liked to been more involved in attack. Rating: 7

Kingsley Coman — Attacking midfielder

Showed his pace but struggled to create much in space early.

Did end up creating three chances and had four shots of his own, but none of his looks were all that great. Rating: 5

Leroy Sane — Attacking midfielder

He was just OK.

Wasn’t heavily involved and faded as the game went on.

His passing was also off, completing a team-low 77.5 percent of them.

Rating: 4

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting — Forward (⚽ 37′)

Replaced Robert Lewandowski well, doing his job by getting a well taken goal in the first half.

His passing was superb and should have had an assist to Alaba. Rating: 7.5

Alphonso Davies — Defender

The Canadian did well to bring some pace to the defense and get down the flank to create some danger.

His passing was precise. Rating: 6

Jerome Boateng — Defender

Not great off the bench, as he was schooled by Mbappe on the third goal.

Rating: 4

Hansi Flick — Coach

Playing Sule is a liability.

To his credit, the team played well in attack, but that defense has a lot of work ahead of itself.

Going to be hard to turn this around. Rating: 3

Keylor Navas — Goalkeeper

Multiple big saves.

Not helped by his defense aerially on either of Bayern’s goals in difficult conditions.

The difference between a fortuitous draw and a famous win.

Rating: 8 

Colin Dagba — Defender

Unexpectedly given a start and ultimately a full 90-minute outing.

While he found it tough, especially early on, he grew more into the encounter as it went on.

Rating: 5

Marquinhos — Defender (⚽ 28′)


Strong defensive display while he was on and scored a priceless second away goal before coming off injured.

PSG need him operational next week.

Rating: 8

Presnel Kimpembe — Defender

Not the same without Marquinhos alongside him but that is to be expected when such a familiar pairing is broken up.

Will need to raise his game in Paris.

Rating: 6

Abdou Diallo — Defender

Continued his solid run of performances at left-back before being withdrawn at half-time with what must have been a physical issue of some sort.

Rating: 6

Danilo Pereira — Midfielder

To go 90 minutes after an injury is impressive but to go a full game in an unfavored secondary role is even more admirable and he did just that filling in for Marquinhos.

Arguably should have done better on one goal but was otherwise sound.

Rating: 7

Idrissa Gueye — Midfielder

Much better than the majority of his performances for PSG have been.

This was in the same range as him imp0ressive early display against Real Madrid as he involved himself thoroughly.

Rating: 7

Angel Di Maria — Attacking midfielder

Played roles in two of the three goals but was missing at times and suffered physically the longer the game wore on.

Rating: 6

Neymar — Attacking midfielder

Another superb continental display from the Brazilian who continues to save his best for these sorts of nights with two sublime assists and played through discomfort for much of the second 45.

Rating: 8

Julian Draxler — Attacking midfielder

Went 90 minutes but picked up a second half booking and contributed towards one of Bayern’s two goals in agame that could have been so different had his first half strike not been ruled offside.

Rating: 5

Kylian Mbappe — Forward (⚽ 3′, ⚽ 68′)

Once again, the main man with two goals in an impressive display that saw him deliver on the biggest stage for the third consecutive game.

A poor miss when offside in the second half should not detract from another groundbreaking moment in his young career.

Rating: 9

Ander Herrera — Midfielder

Solid but unspectacular, as is often the case, after he was sent on to replace the injured Marquinhos as Pochettino moved his pieces around.

Rating: 6

Mitchel Bakker — Defender

Something of a forgotten man under Pochettino, the Dutchman was given a chance and although it was far from plain sailing, he did not disgrace himself as PSG muddled through with two inexperienced full backs.

Rating: 5

Moise Kean — Forward

Sent on for Di Maria and was unlucky not to get played in late on for what probably would have been a fourth Parisien goal.

Rating: N/A

Rafinha — Midfielder

Given a token run-out in place of Neymar for the final few minutes as the game played out.

Rating: N/A

Mauricio Pochettino — Manager

Considering his depleted squad pre-match and how he lost further players during the game, the Argentine handled himself well — despite having to ride out serious pressure from the hosts.
