PSG Draws With Leipzig As They Bow Out Of The Champions League


RB Leipzig played a 2-2 draw against PSG with a stoppage-time penalty but the result saw them knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored a brace for PSG as the team dropped down to the second position in Group A, right after Manchester City.

He had struggled to settle in the Parisian side after joining them from Liverpool but struck one in the 21st minute and headed the second one, 6 mins before HT.

Leipzig Vs PSG: Highlights

Leipzig had taken the lead through Christopher Nkunku in the 8th minute and they missed the chance to double it when Andre Silva’s 12th-minute penalty was saved.

Substitute Dominik Szoboszlai did better from the spot in second-half stoppage time but could not do the needful to rescue a point for the Germans.

Mbappe went close to scoring on the stroke of halftime but keeper Peter Gulacsi pulled off a reflex save to deny the French striker, who also missed a golden opportunity early in the second half.

Wijnaldum stated that PSG had created a lot of opportunities but managed to give away a few and that is why they stayed in the game. They had lost the ball too often at the end of the game and had failed to convert their chances.

He added that “maybe” Leipzig deserved the point that they got. Gini added that he worked hard every day and was getting to know his teammates better. He hopes that he can continue that form for PSG.
