Bayern 2-3 PSG: match report

The hosts had 31 shots to PSG's seven, yet somehow it was the Ligue 1 champions who came away with the win...and three away goals.

Bayern had the bulk of the play and were positive in their play throughout, but came up against a hard-working backline and an inspired Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican stopper made 10 saves, which hasn't been bettered in a quarter-final game since 2003/04.

Mbappé steals the show

Paris St Germain forward Kylian Mbappé scored twice to steer the visitors to a 3-2 victory over holders Bayern Munich in a topsy-turvy Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday.

Mbappé fired in his eighth goal of the competition in the 68th minute after Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting in the 37th minute and Thomas Müller on the hour had cancelled out a two-goal PSG lead. It was Bayern's first Champions League loss in more than two years.

PSG had stunned the hosts in the third minute through Mbappé, whose powerful low drive squeezed through the legs of keeper Manuel Neuer.

The French side were brutally efficient and scored with their second chance of the game when Neymar picked out Marquinhos with a pinpoint cross and the PSG captain beat Neuer in the 28th minute.

Choupo-Moting had headed onto the crossbar in the second minute but did better with another header in the 38th and Mueller brought the hosts level, nodding in a Joshua Kimmich free kick.

Mbappé scored from a quick counter-attack, however, and PSG survived late pressure from Bayern to hang on for victory ahead of next week's return leg in Paris.

It's all to play for and another dominant performance from Bayern is unlikely to go as unrewarded as tonight.
