Bayern defeat PSG but end up as group runnerups

Bayern Munich 3-1 Paris Saint Germain

Bayern Munich 3-1 Paris Saint Germain

Yet the visitors, who had beaten Bayern 3-0 in Paris, always looked likely to avoid that once Kylian Mbappé scored just after half-time.

Bayern go into the runners-up pot for the draw at 1100 GMT on Monday.

"Altogether, we showed a good game".

Bayern and PSG meet on the field on Tuesday in the Allianz Arena, with the Ligue 1 side in pole position to take top spot in their Champions League group.

So the Spaniard finds himself in the ridiculous position of being 3-1 down but seemingly unable to make a tactical substitution until the 91st minute.

The fall guy for a failure that seems inevitable unless PSG radically improve on their Munich performance has already been decided; the chances of Emery surviving beyond Champions League exit are infinitesimal.

The Colombian's cross was headed towards goal by Kingsley Coman and Lewandowski turned and slammed his shot past PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to the delight of the home crowd, after Dani Alves played him onside. Karim Benzema was 20 years and 10 months old when he reached that mark for OL. PSG fell for the second game running for the first time since December 2014 when they lost to Barcelona and Guingamp.

Bayern Munich delivered a stark warning to their Champions League rivals for the knockout stages as their resounding win over Paris Saint-Germain underlined their return to form.

On the one hand, German football has a great reputation for not milking its fans and offering some of the most affordable tickets in Europe.

Some have questioned Bayern fans' latest actions, however, as they aren't exactly financial minnows themselves and just like PSG, they have their own relationship with Qatari money. In terms of potential, they're right up there at the top with Manchester City right now.

"We've confirmed that we have ambitions, the team is getting better and better", said Heynckes.

Marco Verratti started the move, floating a pass into the penalty area where Edinson Cavani controlled the ball and picked out Mbappe, who made no mistake with his header.

Defender Mats Hummels stormed off at the final whistle, exchanging words with Mueller, and left the stadium without speaking to waiting reporters.

"There are things to improve but I don't think that Bayern dominated We had four-five chances when we were either one-on-one with the keeper or could have scored".
