PARIS: Paris Saint-Germain eliminated Champions League defending champions Bayern Munich via away goals after being tied 3-3 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.
PSG lost in a rematch at the Parc des Princes after Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the only goal of the match against the old club, but it could not stop the French giants from advancing to the semi-finals.
Twice Neymar’s effort hit the post in the first half and Choupo-Moting then put Bayern ahead five minutes before the break.
The defending champions’ efforts to find a second goal were dashed after they lost 3-2 in the first leg at home last week.
PSG have now made up for their 1-0 defeat in last season’s final and dreams of winning their first European Championship continue to burn.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who previously eliminated Barcelona in the last 16, will face either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund.
“I am very happy, despite losing. We face a great team, the European champions, but we are back in the semi -finals.
“We are a real team. The most important thing is that we made it forward. Now we can aim for something bigger,” said Neymar.
