Bayern Munich secured a One Nil victory over Paris Saint-Germain in their round of 16 clash at the Parc Des Princes with Kingsley Coman repeating his Champions league final heroics to give his team the First leg advantage.
Born in Paris and raised at PSG, Coman scored the only goal when Bayern beat the French side in the 2020 Champions League final and he was again the sole scorer as the German champions put one foot into the quarter-finals.
PSG, who have now lost five games in all competitions in 2023, held firm in the opening half but were eventually subdued and failed to fight back despite finishing the game with Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi all on the pitch.
Christophe Galtier’s side now face the prospect of a second elimination in a row in the last 16 on March 8 in Munich, although Mbappe’s high-octane display as a second-half substitute will have given them hope.
Mbappe’s introduction raised hope of a turnaround as the stadium erupted with his entry following a two-week injury lay-off.
Mbappe had little to offer until the 74th, when he was denied from close range by Yann Sommer and had a goal ruled out for offside with PSG succumbing to a disappointing loss at home.
