Paris Saint-Germain confirmed their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League despite a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Although the Bundesliga side claimed the win on the night, the French champions went through on away goals after a 3-2 victory of their own a week earlier in the first leg.
But which players stood out most?
✔️ Neymar: 7.8
Not only did Neymar manage as many shots as the entire Bayern side over the course of the game, but he also hit the woodwork twice and got another three shots on target. Couple that with six dribbles and 22 passes into the final third and it was clear that the Brazilian was not only at his best but the real engine behind PSG’s constant threat in attack.
❌ Kingsley Coman: 6.4
To beat PSG without Robert Lewandowski in the box, Bayern knew they would need something extra from the wings and their attacking midfielders. Unfortunately that wasn’t to be and for much of the game Kingsley Coman struggled to create goal scoring opportunities for himself or his team mates.
Despite having 64 touches of the ball throughout the match, Coman managed just four dribbles and four crosses and didn’t manage to create a single big chance for his team. On top of that, he also lost the ball an incredible 21 times.
In the biggest of games Bayern desperately needed a bit of magic from the Frenchman and he disappointingly didn’t offer much on the night.
⭐ Lucas Hernandez: 9
Despite coming up against two of the most impressive and pacey forwards in world football, Bayern decided to persevere with their remarkably high defensive line throughout Tuesday’s clash. And the only reason it worked was because of the heroics in defence from Lucas Hernandez.
Over the course of the game the French defender failed to miss a single tackle he attempted, along with making seven ball recoveries and three interceptions. On top of that, the central defender misplaced just eight of his passes over the course of the night.
While it may not have been enough to help his side progress to the next round, Hernandez perhaps played his best every game in a Bayern shirt since joining the club from Atletico Madrid.
