Mbappe masterclass outshines Bayern at home; Bayern 2-3 PSG
Kylian Mbappé has scored eight goals in this season's UEFA Champions League, the joint-most by a French player in a single campaign in the competition, moving level with Wissam Ben Yedder in 2017-18 and David Trezeguet in 2001-02 -OptaJoe
Paris Saint Germain despite a 40 per cent possession takes home a 3-2 lead against Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.
A brace from Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos strike gave the visitors a three-goal cushion before Chupo Moting and Thomas Muller lessened the deficit.
Mbappe opened the scores as early as the third minute when Neymar charged towards the penalty area from the right before finding Mbappé in ample space. The Frenchman’s shot was too fierce for Neuer at his near post yet the captain saw the strike squirm between his legs and in to make it 1-0.
Marquinhos doubled the lead 25 minutes later following Bayern clearance of crosses yet failed to conclusively deal with the danger initially caused by the corner. On the turn on the right, Neymar swung in an incisive cross to find Marquinhos beyond the home defence inside the penalty area. The defender took a perfect touch, controlling the delivery immaculately before slotting in past the descending Neuer at his left-hand post.
Choupo Moting halved the deficit in the 37-minute when he planted a firm header down, into the turf and beyond Navas at his far right-hand post.
Bayern levelled the scores in the 60-minute through Muller who directed a delightful whipped cross into the penalty area by Kimmich as it glanced a header beyond Navas at his far post.
Paris retook the lead with a clinical counterattack and an unerring finish from Mbappé. A slick move ended with Di María sending a low diagonal pass into the path of the lightning-heeled prodigy on the left inside the penalty area. He kept the retreating Boateng guessing for a few seconds, cutting inside before blasting a ruthless low shot beyond the unsuspecting Navas at his near post.
