Messi-Neymar-Mbappe’s triangular squadron couldn’t penetrate the Munich wall either

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG, France), where Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe all stepped on the ground, lost without scoring in the first leg of the round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League.

PSG lost 0-1 in the home game against Bayern Munich (Germany) on the 15th in the first leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League in the 2022-2023 season. As a result, PSG, which is challenging to win the Champions League for the first time since its founding, has become difficult on the way to the quarterfinals. PSG also suffered three consecutive defeats in official matches following the French Cup round of 16 against Marseille on the 9th and the French Ligue 1 match against AS Monaco on the 12th. It is the first three consecutive losses since August 2021, when the triangular formation of Messi, Neymar, and Mbafe was formed. The undefeated march (33 wins, 7 draws) in official home matches also stopped at 40 games. 슬롯사이트

After winning all six matches in the Champions League group stage, Munich continued its seven-game winning streak. The German media Zeit said of Munich’s victory that day, “The team overpowered the heroes.” Munich occupied an advantage in advancing to the quarterfinals for four consecutive seasons from the 2019-2020 season.

PSG put forward Messi and Neymar as the two-top starters that day, but they were blocked by Munich’s solid defense and only managed one shot in the first half. Munich poured 10 shots (2 effective shots) in the first half. PSG conceded in the 8th minute of the second half. Even Mbappe, who had not fully recovered from a thigh injury, was substituted in the 12th minute of the second half, but failed to turn the tide. After the game, Mbappe said, “I will go out more aggressively in the second game and make Munich uncomfortable.”

Munich secured victory with Kingsley Comang’s opening goal. Coment, a French national, hails from the PSG youth team and made his professional debut at PSG in January 2013. Komang was also the protagonist of the final goal when Munich defeated PSG 1-0 in the Champions League final three years ago and lifted the ‘Big Ear’ (Champions League championship trophy). Comang has been playing for Munich since 2015 after working for Juventus (Italy).

On this day, Son Heung-min’s team, Tottenham (England), lost 0-1 to AC Milan (Italy) in the first round of the round of 16 visiting match. Son Heung-min played 81 minutes as a starter, but failed to shoot a single shot. Tottenham will play the second round against AC Milan on the 9th of next month.
