PSG won a precious victory on the field of Bayern Munich in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (3-2) on Wednesday evening. RMC Sport offers you an exclusive film of the match, with the goals but also unpublished images.
No French club since ASSE in 1969 had achieved such a performance. Until Wednesday April 7. 52 years after the Greens, PSG also beat Bayern Munich in the knockout phase of the Champions League (3-2). So yes, it was only a quarter-final first leg, and it will be necessary to validate this result in the return match next week, otherwise what this Bavarian “feat” risks becoming a forgotten chapter in the long history of C1. But the feat is considerable.
Has PSG been the master of the debates at the Allianz Arena? Not really, no. He suffered a large part of the meeting, he saw the reigning European champion bombard his goal (32 shots), but thanks to a well-honed plan, thanks to an impeccable Keylor Navas, and to a decisive Kylian Mbappé, he pulled off the perfect shot.

Goals and sacrifices
Under the April snow, the French striker, criticized lately, woke up at the best time. He cooled the Munich camp a little more from the 3rd minute of play (1-0), and scored the winning goal much later (3-2, 68th), while Bayern had glued to the score.
But the Bayern-PSG film (to be discovered in the video above) is also an opportunity to review the small stories in the big one. The duels, the reflections of Mauricio Pochettino and Hansi Flick, the early exits (Süle, Alaba, Diallo) and the Marquinhos episode, scorer (2-0, 28th) despite an injury to an adductor, and forced to leave the battle in the stride. A touch of heroism on the stage with the stars.
