Bayern Munich knock Messi and Mbappe’s PSG out of Champions League as AC Milan eliminate Tottenham (Video)

Bayern Munich has knocked Messi and Mbappe’s PSG out of the 2022/23 Champions League, while Tottenham were eliminated by AC Milan on Wednesday night.

Despite the efforts of the attacking duo Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé, PSG couldn’t avoid another Champions League disappointment as they were defeated by Bayern Munich in the Round of 16.

The Bundesliga powerhouses advanced with a 3-0 aggregate score after winning the first leg by a solitary goal in Paris and then outscoring their opponents 2-0 in the return game at the Allianz Arena.

Kingsley Coman scored in the first leg, but it was Eric Choupo-Moting and Sergi Gnabry who made the difference in the second leg by securing Bayern’s place in the quarterfinals with two goals in the second half.

The first goal PSG allowed in Munich, which essentially ended their chances of winning the Champions League this year, is their own fault.

Marco Verratti received the ball from Bitshabu inside his own box after the midfielder dallied too long. The ball was deftly pushed away from him by Thomas Muller, who lay it.

Choupo-Moting now has four goals in six Champions League games this season and would be hoping for more as Bayern gun for glory all the way.

Leroy Sane was interestingly substituted for Eric Choupo-Moting by Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann in the 69th minute.

Sane’s introduction almost resulted in a goal in the 75th minute after he dribbled into the PSG box, but his effort from inside the box was misdirected.

Despite PSG’s best efforts, they were either checkmated by Bayern’s well-organized defense or the goalie.

While it first seemed that Bayern’s 1-0 victory would be enough to secure the victory, Gnabry added a second goal in the 89th minute to further compound the anguish for Messi, Mbappé, and his other teammates.

Messi will not play in the Champions League quarterfinal in consecutive seasons for the first time in his whole career.


In the other game of the evening, AC Milan traveled to London, encountered, and defeated Tottenham Hotspur.

AC Milan battled for a goalless draw in the second leg to go to the quarterfinals after winning the first leg by a solitary goal at San Siro.
