PSG versus Bayern Munich

Kingsley Coman fired Bayern Munich to a narrow victory over PSG in the first leg of their round of 16 tie in the Champions League.

The former PSG youngster volleyed home a deserved winner for the Bundesliga giants, who were dominating until Kylian Mbappe was brought on in the latter stages.

During the first half, Sergio Ramos’ last-ditch tackle denied Jamal Musiala, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting came close to scoring with a header and Coman’s attempt went wide of the near post.

Just before the break, PSG keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma got down well to hold Joshua Kimmich’s low drive.

The goal arrived in the 53rd minute when Paris-born Coman drifted unmarked into the box from wide on the right and hit a cushioned volley underneath Donnarumma.

Donnarumma went some way to making amends with a stunning point-blank save to tip Choupo-Moting’s effort onto the crossbar.

Mbappe, a substitute after recovering from injury, twice had the ball in the net late on as PSG rallied, but both goals were ruled out for offside.

Bayern’s Benjamin Pavard will miss the second leg after he was sent off for a second booking for bringing down Lionel Messi in stoppage time.
