RB Leipzig 0-3 PSG
Paris St-Germain qualified for the champions league final for the first time after an entertaining semifinal in Lisbon as they claimed victory over RB Leipzig.
PSG who have over the years been one Europe’s biggest spenders in the transfer market but seem to be Europe’s underachievers have finally seized the opportunity of being in the finals courtesy of goals scored from Marquinhos, Angel di Maria and Juan Bernat.
Marquinhos who scored in their triumph over Atalanta in a spectacular comeback, jumped to head in Angel di Maria free kick.
Later on Angel di Maria himself scored from close range following a superb flick from Neymar after RB Leipzig goalkeeper, Peter Gulasci made a poor clearance.
With level of possession that PSG enjoyed last night, they should have been well out of sight before half time, as Neymar efforts at goal twice hit the post from a clipped finish then missed an a free kick from close range before shooting wide at the near post.
Before PSG got their second goal, RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen was provided with a a glorious opportunity from Dani Olmo pull back but unfortunately shot wide.
At the end sealed the win for PSG in the second half with a header which RB Leipzig’s players felt it was offside but it turns out that Nordic Mukele, who had slipped in the build up to the goal, was onside.
PSG will today know who their opponent are in Sunday’s final in Instanbul when Bayern Munich face Lyon today’s semifinal.
Bernat sealed the win in the second half with a header that Leipzig felt was offside but was legitimate as the prone Nordi Mukiele, who had slipped in the build-up, was playing the scorer onside.
PSG will find out who they face in Sunday’s final when five-time winners Bayern Munich play Lyon in the other semi-final on Wednesday.
