UEFA Champions League

Two PSG Players Who Cost Their Team A Place In The UCL Quarter-finals

Four teams have qualified for the quarterfinal stage of the 2022–2023 UEFA Champions League season as the first four Round of 16 deciders were concluded.

Paris Saint-Germain once more failed to progress to the later stage of the competition as they fell to a 2–0 loss at the Allianz Arena and crashed out from the UEFA Champions League with a 3–0 aggregate loss. In my opinion, the French champions had the chance to turn the tie around if not for the poor decisions by two of their players, Vitinha and Verratti.

Vitinha had the chance to put PSG 1–0 up on the night as the Bayern goalkeeper gave away possession in front of his goal and Hakimi unselfishly laid the ball to Vitinha, who had an open net to slot the ball into but decided to pass the ball slowly into the net, which gave De Ligt the opportunity to clear the goal from the line.

Verratti on his side was involved in all the big negative moments for PSG, as he lost possession in front of his penalty area which lead to the first goal of the night, as Goretzka collected the ball and calmly placed it for Choupo-Moting. Verratti made the same mistake in front of Bayern Munich's penalty area, and he was punished once more as Bayern went on a counterattack, and Cancelo supplied the assist that killed the tie to Gnabry, who calmly finished his chance.

PSG will once more go back to France without having a commanding UCL knockout game, as they have failed to win the trophy once more with the array of stars they parade in their team.
