A wonderful morning to you all, as we check out the results of the football matches, played yesterday Tuesday August 18, 2020
Paris Saint-Germain cruised into the Champions League final in style as they beat RB Leipzig 3-0 in a one-sided semi-final in Lisbon Portugal.
RB Leipzig failed to come to the party, after being lacklustre all night as their counterparts from Ligue 1 breezed past them to secure their first-ever Champions League final place, becoming the fifth French team to achieve that feat.
Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, and Juan Bernat all got on the score sheet for Thomas Tuchel’s side. Di Maria, in particular, was a star of the match, putting in a man-of-the-match display with one goal and two assists, showing his strength despite being 32 years of age.
Neymar also provided an assist, that of Di Maria’s goal and he has now had a hand in 59 goals in 59 Champions League appearances, scoring 35 goals and providing 24 assists of which 14 goals and nine assists belong to PSG in just 19 matches. What a man.
Kudos to RB Leipzig for a wonderful season, reaching the Champions League semi-final for the first time since they were founded in 2009 and they also finished third in the Bundesliga, meaning they will grace next season’s Champions League.
Paris Saint-Germain will now face in the final at the weekend the winner between Lyon and Bayern Munich who play their semi-final match today.
