In its garden of the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain, sick since the beginning of the year 2023, did not find the remedy to overcome Bayern and logically lost to the German club (1-0) in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
Paris is still sick. In front of their public, the French club, without great offensive ambitions, lost against Bayern Munich (1-0) on Tuesday, February 14 in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. Kingsley Coman, former PSG player, scored the only goal of the match (53rd). With this victory away from home, Bayern takes an option for the quarterfinals.
PSG has been in trouble since the beginning of the year, with two defeats last week, and they were facing Bayern Munich with a lot of doubts. And the least we can say is that it is not tonight that the club of the capital has reassured. Helpless, Christophe Galtier's men have been content to defend for almost 75 minutes. If Ramos, author of a solid performance, and his partners contained the Bavarian attacks for a long time, they finally cracked in the 56th minute on a cross taken by Kingsley Coman.
Mbappé was almost there
Paris will however try to react. Christophe Galtier launched in Kylian Mbappé, his number one offensive asset at the hour of play. The entry of the Bondy star, who has not yet fully recovered from his hamstring injury, will completely change the face of the game. Paris is finally able to move forward and camp in the middle of the field. More and more threatening, Mbappé believes to have snatched the equalization for his team but his goal is cancelled by the VAR for a slight offside position of Nuno Mendes. PSG thus loses on the smallest score and is forced to go to the Allianz Arena to win to hope to pass to the last eighth.
Milan reassure themselves at home
Like PSG, AC Milan is not having the best of times at the moment. But unlike the Parisians, the Rossoneri reassured themselves in front of their home crowd on Tuesday in the first leg of the round of 16. Olivier Giroud and his teammates got the better of Tottenham (1-0). Birahim Diaz punished Spurs from the 7th minute. Behind, Pape Matar Sarr and his teammates were too inoffensive to hope to get back to the score. They will try to make up for it in the second leg on March 8.
