Unlike the first leg, Thomas Tuchel's side were impressive on their home turf as they kept a leash on the visitors for much of the game. Erling Haaland, who scored a brace against PSG at the Signal Iduna Park, struggled upfront while winger Jadon Sancho failed to get involved for most of the game.

Angel Di Maria was one of the best players on the pitch after the Argentine turned provider for PSG's opener in the 28th minute. Di Maria's well-timed corner kick was met by a diving header from Neymar for the goal. Juan Bernat doubled the tally after the Spaniard struck Pablo Sarabia's low cross past Roman Burki. 

The game had a fair share of physicality involved it saw 8 players booked for various reasons. Emre Can received his marching orders after the former Liverpool player appeared to push Neymar during an altercation.
