Bayern Munich v PSG player ratings: Manuel Neuer 5, Thomas Muller 8; Neymar and Kylian Mbappe 9

Holders Bayern are beaten in thrilling Champions League quarter-final first leg

Kylian Mbappe scored twice to secure Paris Saint-Germain a thrilling 3-2 win at holders Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Mbappe was a constant threat while Neymar had two assists as the French champions responded to their 1-0 loss to Bayern in last year’s final by seizing the advantage going into the second leg in Paris next week.

Marquinhos scored the other goal as the visitors went 2-0 up inside the first half hour, but the PSG captain went off injured shortly afterwards and Bayern responded through headers from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller.

Mbappe sealed the win with his eight goal of the competition in the 68th minute and afterwards he said: “I think it was efficiency. We managed to score with almost all of our opportunities, and we managed to defend well as a team, even if it's difficult against Bayern Munich.

“But there's a second round at home and we'll have to win again if we want to qualify for the semi-finals.”
