PSG Secure Top Spot Despite Loss To Bayern

UEFA Champions League

Result: Bayern Munich 3-1 Paris Saint-Germain

Date: 05 December 2017

Venue: Allianz Arena

Paris Saint-Germain secured top spot in Group B despite suffering a 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening.

There was a good tempo to the opening exchanges of the encounter as both sides showed their attacking intent early on.

It was Bayern who broke the deadlock on eight minutes as Robert Lewandowski showed his composure to slot home from six-yards out.

From then on, the Bundesliga champions took control of the encounter and restricted PSG to counter attacks in the opening 25 minutes.

Bayern went on to double their lead on 37 minutes as James Rodriguez' superb cross found Corentin Tolisso, who headed past Alphonse Areola.

The score remained 2-0 at the halftime break.

Five minutes into the second half, PSG managed to pull a goal back as Edinson Cavani delightfully picked out Kylian Mbappe, who sent a fine header into the bottom corner.

Mbappe nearly brought PSG level on the hour mark, but his powerful effort from 20-yards was turned away by Sven Ulreich.

However, Bayern bagged a third goal in the 68th minute as Kingsley Coman broke free down the left before teeing up Tolisso to slot home for his second game.

Jupp Heynckes withdrew the likes of Franck Ribéry and Rodriguez as Bayern looked to see out the remaining stages of the half.

Nevertheless, neither side could carve out a chance in the closing stages of the second as Bayern ran out 3-1 winners.
