The defending champions' run at this season's Champions league was cut short after PSG remained strong against the team in the last season’s finals match up to advance ahead to the last four. Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich tied 3-3 in the quarter-finals match but PSG won on account of away goals. Paris St Germain’s dream of winning this year’s Champions League received a huge boost after they kicked out Bayern Munich in a nerve-wracking match.
PSG had secured a 3-2 win in the first leg and the German side held off the team to win 1-0 in the second leg with a goal by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. In the first half, the brilliance of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Angel Di Maria had lift PSG to a 3-2 win this time but the combined work of Idrissa Gueye, Colin Dagba, and Leandro Paredes saw the team to a win over defending champions.
