PSG players mock Haaland after moving to quarters

Man Utd confident Jadon Sancho signs if he qualifies for the Champions League

Man Utd confident Jadon Sancho signs if he qualifies for the Champions League

After three consecutive painful failures, the club from the French capital fought off past demons to qualify onto the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

This was PSG's first victory over the German side in Champions Leagues and it was also the first occasion since 1987-88 season that Borussia Dortmund has been eliminated from a major European competition in a two-legged tie after winning the first leg.

Lucien Favre, Borussia Dortmund coach: "At the beginning it was hard, they pressed very high". Having reached the Champions League last 16, PSG can now count on the Brazilian to chase their much craved Champions League title.

The Norwegian global had scored twice in the first leg to give Borussia a slender advantage over PSG, but was effectively shackled as the French side won 2-0 last night in a match played behind closed doors. But we scored a second goal. This is already shaping up to be the most open Champions League in years: Liverpool and Dortmund's elimination means there could be only one former victor in the quarterfinals, with a lot of strong teams but no overriding favourite. It was a super, super tight game. "Maybe you could argue how necessary it was", admitted Neymar's PSG teammate Thilo Kehrer, "but it's all part of the business".

"It was really extraordinary".

If nothing else, this proves that PSG can play like an actual, cohesive team when they want, not just a slack-jawed collection of individuals who soil themselves at the first sign of adversity. It was exactly the atmosphere we needed before a big game, with a lot of pressure. 'We are going to humiliate these sons of w****,' the 32-year-old shouted in an empty Parc des Princes. I am very happy. "But we had a second goal, there were moments, minutes where we suffered, but we always suffered together". I felt that we were always in it together and that we were also able to be risky.

The clash against Borussia Dortmund was contested behind closed doors to prevent Coronavirus. However, the second leg saw Neymar and co. bring their A-game as PSG bossed Dortmund on Wednesday night (Thursday IST). After Bernat's goal, TV cameras caught Ángel Di María saying: "We have to score six, seven.All the goals we can". "Scoring the first one was excellent". It wasn't enough out there.

"PSG had a scare early on when Neymar went down clutching his right shoulder after falling down early on".
