Good night for the French team, but what next?
The French team fell with a goal unanswered by its former player Chubu Moting, but their 3/2 win at Bayern made things go in their favor due to the rule of goals outside the ground.
Paris climbs to the semi-finals for the second time in a row, to meet the winner of Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund, towards the dream of the European title.
Coach Mauricio Pochettino carried out a suicide mission, and came out a winner, and this victory has many implications and consequences.
The team went through a difficult stage in the group stage, as it signed with Manchester United, Basaksehir and Leipzig, Germany.
He overcame this mission with 4 wins and two defeats, under the leadership of former coach Thomas Tuchel, to play the team against Barcelona in the Round of 16.
Things here were different, as Tochel left due to disagreements with the club’s management, to replace him with Argentine Mauricio Pochettino.
Despite the difficult task against Barcelona, Pochettino led Paris to a 4-1 victory in a magical night at the Camp Nou, in which Kylian Mbappe starred.
In the second leg, the team settled with a positive 1-1 draw, to succeed in snatching the card to qualify for the quarter-finals, and play in a retaliatory confrontation against Bayern Munich.
Once again, Mbappe leads the scene and leads Paris to the semi-finals, after his brilliance in the 3/2 victory over the Bavarian team, leading to a loss on the night that does not represent any value for Bayern.
How about next?
It is difficult to judge that the task of Paris is easy, because he will meet the winner from Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund, and not the victorious from Real Madrid and Liverpool.
If City qualify, the task will be very difficult for Paris, because the English team has exactly the same motives and dreams as its French counterpart.
Paris has achieved everything on the local side, and what is missing is the European dream project of the owner Nasser Al-Khulaifi, who did everything to ascend the throne of the Champions League.
Exactly the same for Manchester City owners, Pep Guardiola, the coach who dominated English football and has been unable to win the competition since his departure from Barcelona.
The task would be somewhat easier if Borussia Dortmund qualified, despite the German team owning the star Erling Haaland, as the biggest obstacle would be Real Madrid, who became close to climbing at the expense of Liverpool, after winning 3/1 in the first leg of the quarter-finals.
Mbappe and Neymar
Speculation continues about the fate of Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, whose contract with the French club expires in June 2022 and has yet to sign the renewal.
Recently released Spanish reports confirm the player’s desire to leave And the lack of renewal, with attempts by Real Madrid to obtain his services.
Neymar also expires his contract with Paris at the same time, and has not signed the renewal yet, so the French club threatens to lose him or Mbappe.
Paris’ winning the Champions League may make things more likely for the club to abandon Mbappe or Neymar, because the team at the time will achieve what it wants, and it can benefit from the financial value in exchange for selling either of them to rebuild.
As for exiting the tournament in the next stage or losing the final, with either of them being sold, it will put the club in front of the risk of the project completely failing and disintegrating, after it reached the highest stages of maturity at the European level in the last two seasons.
