  • Vitinha nearly put PSG ahead after Sommer mistake
  • De Ligt came to the rescue on the line
  • Game finished 2-0 Bayern

WHAT HAPPENED? The Bayern goalkeeper inexplicably elected to dribble the ball out from the back from a back-pass, but almost immediately gave the ball away to Vitinha inside the box. While under pressure from Sommer the PSG midfielder fired an under-hit shot goalwards, which De Ligt was on hand to clear on the slide.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The clearance was a let-off for Bayern, who would have conceded against the run of play after an assured start aside from Sommer's mistake. Eric Choupo-Moting thought he had put the home side in front early in the second half only to see his effort ruled out for offside. But the Cameroon international was on hand to convert into an half-empty net on the hour mark, making it 1-0 following Marco Verratti's error.

WHAT NEXT? A Serge Gnabry strike late on made it 2-0 on the night and 3-0 on aggregate, as PSG suffer successive last-16 exits from the Champions League in what was a sorry performance from Christophe Galtier's side on the night.
