PSG 2-0 Dortmund (3-2 aggregate)
Neymar help Paris Saint-Germain to break Champions League curse of the eight and qualify for the quarterfinal
Neymar led PSG to the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time since 2016 after paving the way for the comeback against Borussia Dortmund. The Brazilian, who already scored the goal in Germany put the classification on track with a header on the plate that certified the Spanish connection between Pablo Sarabia and Juan Bernat (2-0).
PSG breaks the Champions league curse of the eight and QF for the quarterfinal with help of Pablo Sarabia and Neymar. The fireworks of the fans that lit up the Paris sky had their replica in the Burki area. PSG decided the tie in their favor with a 2-0 at half-time after a first half in which they were much more involved and even aggressive under the leadership of a Neymar committed even in the recovery of balls but above all responsible in the absence in the starting eleven of Kylian Mbappe, afflicted with angina that prevented him from training the day before.
In the discount, Paris SG achieved 2-0 with a goal ‘made in Spain’. Pablo Sarabia, starter instead of Mbappe, put a ball in the area and Bernat, surprisingly in the position of ‘9’, diverted the ball to the net.
PSG had painted the table of the classification in 45 minutes but there were another 45 for his oil to dry. Mbappe stirred the night, Di Maria, who Burki deprived of his target of lack and saw a yellow that leaves him without the first leg, suffered and Dortmund grew up forgetting his initial complexes. Keylor began to get harder as the clock ticked. An offensive full of corners but lacking shots.
