Lionel Messi and Neymar led the PSG players in apologizing to the club’s ultras following a dismal performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Throughout the whole game at the Parc des Princes stadium, the home team is getting outplay. But Kingsley Coman’s goal early in the second half sealed the first leg of the Round of 16 contest. It was a result that places Christophe Galtier’s team as underdogs heading into the second leg next month.
The loss continues the Ligue 1 leaders’ worrisome slip in form. They have already lost five games in all competitions since the turn of the year and risk finishing the season with another European defeat and underperformance in Europe.
PSG already lost Ligue 1 away at Lens, Rennes, and Monaco, and are out from the Coupe de France away at Marseille last week. They were also held to a league tie by Reims at home.
This provided the backdrop for an unpleasant mood between the club’s players and supporters, who did provide them full vociferous support during the match against Bayern. This despite the Germans outclassing their opponents for lengthy portions of the game.
Julian Nagelsmann’s team controlled the first 70 minutes of the game, but only had Coman’s score to show for it. Kylian Mbappe’s participation, who’s not required to be able due to a recent muscle injury, assisted PSG in turning the tide in the game’s dying minutes.
