Last Wednesday, PSG hosted Borussia Dortmund at the Parc des Princes for the second-leg game of the Champions League round of 16. The Parisians managed to turn around the 2-1 away defeat at Dortmund and booked their places into the quarterfinals. Neymar and Bernat scored the goals in the 2-0 win from the Parisians.

Unfortunately, the game took place behind closed doors, as a security measure due to the coronavirus outbreak in France.

PSG missed their fans pushing them at the early stages and saw Borussia Dortmund creating the better chances in the beginning. However, they quickly overcame it and went on to break the deadlock.

On 28 minutes, Di Maria took a corner and connected with the unmarked Neymar, who had no problems sending the ball to the back of the net. 1-0 PSG.

The Yellow & Black side tried to react through Haaland, but Keylor Navas was there to save the Parisians.

When everyone thought the first half would end up just like that, the hosts surprised and scored in the injury time. Bernat stole the ball in the middle, played with Neymar, who passed it to Pablo Sarabia, as the Spaniard low-crossed it to Bernat, who scored after a subtle deflection. 2-0 PSG.

We didn’t see many emotional moments in the second half, as PSG seemed comfortable with the advantage, and Dortmund looked uninspired to create something. Apart from a few chances, BVB ended the game down to 10-men, as Emre Can bad-fouled Neymar and was shown a straight red with 85 on the clock.

At the end of the match, we could see Neymar – who finally seems to be growing up at the age of 28 – breaking down in tears of a mix-up of emotion, happiness, and relief, as he finally did something for PSG. Even though it’s a minor step, we need to remember that we’re talking about a player who faked an injury to enjoy the Brazilian carnival as his team was getting eliminated at home by the almighty Manchester United.

However, right when players were celebrating with the crowd who was outside the Parc des Princes, terrible news showed up, as Juventus’ defender, Daniele Rugani, was tested positive for coronavirus, and it might impact on the UEFA Champions League future.

We need to wait and see what’s going on from here, but congratulations PSG anyway!
