Bayern Munich defeated PSG 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 encounter. Although PSG were the home side, they seemed content to allow Bayern to dominate the ball from the start while they looked to break themselves.

The French side thought they had equalised in the 82nd minute, but second-half substitute Kylian Mbappe’s goal was disallowed by VAR after Nuno Mendes was shown to be offside in the build-up.
A third straight loss made it five defeats in 11 games this year for PSG coach Christophe Galtier’s team. PSG must hope they can turn the tie around in the second leg.
