With a great Neymar and key participations from the Argentine Di María, the Parisian team defeated the Germans 3-0 and became the first finalist in the competition.
PSG is the first finalist of the Champions League. The Parisian team beat with authority RB Leipzig by 3-0 and he got into the defining meeting of the top European competition for the first time.
Those led by Thomas Tuchel, who came to qualify with suffering against Atalanta, this time had a much calmer day. One of the great reasons was the presence from the start of the talented Kylian Mbappé.
But, although the young French player was not as decisive as in the quarterfinals, the attention he generated released the other star of the team: the Brazilian Neymar. The former Barcelona, who will seek to reach the top of the continent while Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi watch him from the outside, had a party with the Parisian defense throughout the match.
The Parisian team played a great first half. After a couple of clear plays that they could not make, they finally opened the scoring after a perfect free kick by Ángel Di María that Marquinhos subtly headed to the back of the net. Precisely, the Argentine, another of the great figures of the match, extended the advantage minutes later with a left-handed definition after great pressure at the start of the German team, who never felt comfortable before the great approach of his rival.
Leipzig advanced their lines in the second half, but more than a solution it was a problem: PSG love to play against because of the speed of their forwards. In this way came the third, after a quick recovery, another center from Di María and a header from Bernat, who had been pressing in the opposite area.
The PSG game took him comfortable in the final minutes, and he could even have scored a few more goals.
Historic triumph for the Parisians, who after crossing the (previously fateful) barrier of the quarterfinals fairly, in this case they were able to display the best of their football. The final will be played next Sunday, against the winner of the key between Bayern Munich and Lyon.
