Initial reactions and observations
- What an unlucky game for Bayern Munich. They created all the chances and hit the woodwork TWICE, only to be undone by a couple of PSG corners. Neither side scored from open play, but Bayern got the closest and couldn’t convert when it counted.
- Jens Scheuer’s substitutions were questionable. Subbing off Magull who was the creative heart of the team kept Bayern at a standstill for the next 20 minutes, and made finding a goal far more difficult than it needed to be. Bayern now have a mountain to climb in the second leg.
- Klara Buhl’s free kick was a bullet. That is all.
Full time: Bayern Munich 1-2 PSG.
83’ — GOAL! Excellent free kick by Buhl, making it 2-1. Hopefully Bayern can get back into this tie.
71’ — Goal. Someone call Robespierre, Marie-Antoinette Katoto has scored again. Another corner, awful defending.
62’ — An hour in and we finally have some subs. The team looks stale and could really use some help.
45’ — The second half is underway!
Halftime: Bayern Munich 0-1 PSG. Ugh.
19’ — Goal. Shambolic defending on a corner allows PSG to take the lead at the Allianz. Some things never change, huh.
Kickoff: We’re underway!
One hour until kickoff: We have lineups!
The Allianz Arena will play host to the first leg of a massive Quarterfinal clash in the UEFA Women’s Champions League today when Bayern Munich host Paris Saint-Germain. It is a huge encounter for the Bavarians, and the match will be streamed, for free, worldwide on YouTube!
The first leg of this fixture is important for Bayern, as they will be looking to take a multiple goal lead to Paris ahead of the second leg. The French champions are no slouch, however, and Bayern will have their work cut out for them if they want to advance to the next round.
Jens Scheuer’s side received a huge boost this weekend when Sydney Lohmann returned to the field for the first time in months after a longer injury layoff. She looked good in her time on the field, helping Bayern down Eintracht Frankfurt.
It’s Bayern time.
Location: Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany
Time: 3:30 pm local time, 1:45 pm EDT
