Perennial bavaria

Bayern Munich reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, which was held for the first time in 1992/93, for the 21st time. More than any other club. Thanks to a 2-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain, the Germans can continue to dream of the title.

One of the reasons for Bayern’s success is their stable defense. Julian Nagelsmann’s side have not conceded a goal before the break in eight Champions League matches this season. They can also thank Matthijs de Ligt for that, who blocked Vitinha’s shot over the line and thus cleared goalkeeper Yann Sommer’s mistake. The 34-year-old thanked the Dutch defender for the rescue and said after the match that he would put a truck of Swiss chocolates in front of his door.

Hoeness contempt

Honorary Chairman Uli Hoeneß knew before the match that his team would also win the second leg. in front of Munich «evening news“We are dealing with a club where money is not an issue,” he said scornfully of PSG. They can buy everything – and then lose to us.” As usual, the 71-year-old followed suit to win 2-0 on the field.

He also saw the Bayern Munich fans’ banner, showing Hoeness with his finger and the bloody steak knife. Next to it was the inscription: “Our butcher cuts off Qatar’s long arm.” Referring to the opponent owned by the Qatar Sovereign Wealth Fund. In the past, Bayern Ultras have also been critical of their club’s relations with the country that hosted the last World Cup.

Cheeky wanderer

But for the stellar team from Paris Saint-Germain, the match was a disappointment. Once again, the dream of winning the title of the biggest club exploded. Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe have rarely been able to free themselves from the grip of Bayern’s defence. Messi did better after the match when a hook ran towards him. However, he slid wide in front of the Argentine and was then detained by security personnel. Messi left the field without much reaction.

Mukieles appearance is brief

PSG held their ground defensively, at least in the first half. In the 61st minute, the hosts took the lead through Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. At that point two of the injured French defenders had to be replaced. Particularly bitter was the emergence of Nordi Mukele, who replaced captain Marquinhos in the 36th minute and had to substitute him again at the break. Of course, it didn’t take long to create a short compilation of its highlights.

Milan fans march

There were only a few highlights from game two on Wednesday night. Milan reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating Tottenham 0-0 thanks to a difficult 1-0 win in the first leg. The Italians can also count on the support of many fans in London. “Curva Sud” created a great atmosphere in the city even before the match.

Richarlison enough

After a harmless offensive performance for long periods, Richarlison blew his collar. In an interview with «TNT SportsThere was no criticism of coach Antonio Conte: “We were very negative. We can’t play like that if we have to create a goal. We will have to attack with more people.” The 25-year-old also expressed his dissatisfaction with his playing times. He did not understand that he was back on the bench despite his good performance.

Romero hurts everyone

That Tottenham Hotspur could not start a major final attack in the last few minutes was also due to Christian Romero being sent off with a yellow card in the 76th minute. The Argentine himself was also injured when he fouled Theo Hernandez and had to be treated briefly. Romero was already noticed in the first leg for a serious foul, seeing a yellow card.
