Two goals from Kylian Mbappe and one from captain Marquinhos made the merciless PSG ensemble with template Neymar cheer, but the Munich team lacked this efficiency without their injured world footballer Robert Lewandowski. “If we show the killer instinct that we often show, everything would look different,” said Thomas Müller, who like Lewandowski substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting after 0-2 deficit for Bayern on the way to 2 : Intermediate score 2 met. “We put the egg in our own nest. Now we have to chase after the residue.”
“Above all, the efficiency was the deciding factor,” said world champion Mbappe, who saw Manuel Neuer, who was outstanding in the Lisbon 2020 final, look unhappy in the Bayern goal when he scored 1-0. “But nothing has been won yet, there is still the second leg,” said Mbappe, who had already hit Barcelona in the last sixteen.
In 34 cases, a team reached the next round of the premier league if they lost the first leg by one goal. In a home defeat with a goal difference, only four teams progressed, in a 2: 3 at home none. In the second leg on Tuesday in Paris, Bayern could miss four top performers in the freestyle of the semi-final opponent for Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund. After Flick had to do without Serge Gnabry after a positive corona test in addition to Lewandowski's knee injured in the first leg, Leon Goretzka and Niklas Süle, who were replaced in the first half of the game, are now struggling with muscular problems.
“I don't know what it looks like next week,” said Flick. The 56-year-old is also expecting a surprising lightning return from Lewandowski, and neither is the super striker himself. “No, that's still too early,” assured Lewandowski. Bayern board member Oliver Kahn was combative. “That's how it is in football: the team has not paid off and Paris – brutally effective,” emphasized the 51-year-old. “But we are Bayern Munich and there is still a second leg.
In addition to PSG, Chelsea also cheered on Wednesday. The 2-0 win over FC Porto in the first leg, which, like the second leg, will be played in Seville due to corona, came just right after the 2: 5 against relegation candidate West Bromwich Albion. Goalscorer Mason Mount, one of the best in the Blues, praised his teammates. “We showed a lot of character and passion, but the job is only half done,” said the 22-year-old Englishman. Coach Thomas Tuchel summed up: “We are happy, but not too happy.”
