There will therefore have been no exploit on the part of Paris Saint-Germain this evening in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. Beaten 1-0 at the Parc des Princes three weeks ago, the capital’s players suffered the same fate in Germany, this time losing 2-0. The two teams will have tied the game in the first half, before seeing Bayern Munich take the upper hand in the second half. Until the pressing of Goretzka and Müller on Marco Verratti, bringing the first goal of Choupo-Moting.

The Italian is one of the great symbols of Parisian failure. It must be said that his responsibility is engaged on the two Bavarian goals. Besides this first ball lost in its surface where the Bavarians took the advantage, it is again shaken 20 meters from Sommer’s goals. There was perhaps a small fault by Kimmich on contact but after Cancelo’s ball come back, offering the assist to Gnabry, the referee did not consider it worth checking. Of which act for a player who too often played with fire.

The years pass for the small 30-year-old midfielder. Arrived at PSG in 2012, he was with Marquinhos of all disappointments. Worse still, he is present on the pitch during all the humiliations (Barça in 2017, Manchester United in 2019, Real Madrid in 2022). Tonight, he never set the necessary pace or found the verticality to advance his team’s game. He who spoke of winning duels yesterday at a press conference, he only won 9 out of 19. And to think that it was extended on December 28 until 2026… Adored for a long time by supporters, Verratti n will probably no longer have their indulgence.
