The second half started the same way, and from the 66th minute, we finally watched the show we expected. First PSG had the best chance of the match when Neymar had a good combination, but his attempt was defended by Burki.
Only three minutes later PSG miss was punished by the marvelous Erling Haaland. The Norwegian again showed a sense of space and a nose for goal after Hakimi’s shot. He perfectly followed the ball that ended first in the block and tossed it into the net.
PSG responded with a few minutes later, Mbappe finally finds the space on the right and find Neymar in the middle who score a goal for 1:1. Still, the incredible Haaland responds with a spectacular goal. He received the ball about twenty yards out, dashed to the edge of the penalty area and left-handedly hit the crossbar for 2: 1.
