Bayern vs PSG: Second half goals from Choupo-Moting and Gnabry made sure that Bayern beat Paris Saint Germain decisively 2-0 at the Allianz Arena to qualify for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.

Credit to Julian Nagelsmann, he got it all right today. His setup closed down Mbappe and Messi, and kept Bayern Munich safe while also getting the goals when the team needed him. His adjustments at halftime to get Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller involved more in the game were what got the breakthrough. The subs were spot-on as well.

This is the second time that PSG have been knocked out by Bayern from goals by their exes. Imagine buying the most expensive attack in football and then getting kicked out of the Champions League by players who left you for free.

Daniele Orsato was a little too lenient with PSG this game, and the offside call on Choupo's first goal was bogus. This guy has always presided over Bayern wins, but he's not a friend of the club by any stretch of the imagination.

Choupo-Moting had a goal ruled out for offside early in the second half, but there was no doubt about his winner just past the hour mark as Marco Verratti was dispossessed in his own area and Leon Goretzka squared to his Bayern teammate to tap it past Donnarumma.

Sommer preserved his clean sheet with a pair of good saves late in the second half, one from a Sergio Ramos header and another from a close-range shot by Mbappe, who was kept relatively quiet by a well-organized Bayern defence.

Substitute Gnabry added the second of the night for Bayern on a ruthless counter-attack, picking up a through ball from Joao Cancelo and smashing his effort past Donnarumma to reach the final scoreline.

Bayern will now await the results of the Champions League draw on March 17 to see who they will face in the quarterfinals.
