The second night of quarterfinals in the Champions League took place on Wednesday evening, as four sides were looking to claim a first leg advantage ahead of the return fixtures next week.
Real Madrid and Manchester City took control of their fixtures on Tuesday evening, and there were another two thrilling fixtures in the competition headlining the sporting action on Wednesday night.
Soccer News: Mbappe Destroys Bayern
There was no denying that the game of the night took place at the Allianz Arena in Germany, as there was a rematch from the Champions League final last season between Bayern Munich and PSG. Bayern ran out 1-0 winners the last time that the sides met, but there were more goals on show last night, as PSG capped an excellent away performance with a 3-2 success.
Kylian Mbappe was the brightest star on show, as the French World Cup winner scored in both halves to give PSG the 3-2 first leg advantage. His first goal came after just three minutes, as his shot was fired straight through Manuel Neuer.
Marquinhos doubled the lead after half an hour of action, before the Brazilian was subbed after picking up an injury. Bayern found a route back into the game before the break, as former PSG striker Eric Choupo-Moting directed a header past the outstanding Keylor Navas. The German side were back on terms on the hour mark, when Thomas Muller scored another great header. However, PSG delivered the ultimate blow on the counter-attack with 20 minutes remaining as Mbappe found a way through two Bayern defenders to fire into the bottom left-hand corner. The second leg takes place in Paris next week.
Soccer News: Chelsea Ease To Win
It was another night in the Champions League, and another win for one of the Premier League sides, as Chelsea secured a comfortable 2-0 success on the road against FC Porto. Thomas Tuchel will believe that his side now have one foot in the semi-finals of the competition.
Mason Mount made Chelsea’s early dominance pay, as he scored a smartly taken goal after half an hour. Ben Chilwell wrapped up the victory in Portugal with five minutes remaining. It would be hard to envisage Porto coming back from 2-0 down back at Stamford Bridge, but the unpredictability of the Champions League means that nothing is impossible.
