German winger, Leroy Same, has intimated that Bayern Munich qualifying for the semifinals of the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League at the expense of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) was something that “was not meant to be.”
He described Bayern Munich’s inability to advance to the semifinals this year as a setback.
“It’s never easy to overcome setbacks.
We gave it our all but it was not meant to be,” he said in a post African Entertainment sighted on his official Facebook .
He, however, congratulated PSG and assured that Bayern Munich will be back next season, saying emphatically “You can be sure we’ll go again next season!’”
Sane was one of Bayern players who impressed in their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg against PSG in Paris on Tuesday, April 13, 2021.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) made it through to the semifinal of this year’s UEFA Champions League despite losing 1-0 to Bayern in Paris.
The first leg of their quarterfinal was staged last week in Germany, with PSG wining 3-2 away from home.
On Tuesday night, the Parisians failed to replicate their goal scoring prowess from the first leg in Bayern.
The second leg, a perfect example of a titanic battle was full of lots of breathtaking moments from both clubs.
Brazilian superstar, Neymar Jr. hit the frame of Bayern’s goal twice and also failed to score with an open pole.
Bayern Munich for the most part of the second half looked the side that were to progress to the semifinal to defend their title further, but there were lots of missed opportunities.
The German club defeated PSG 1-0 in last season’s final to win their 6th Champions League title.
Kylian Mbappe who scored twice against Bayern in the first leg, had a goal ruled out on home soil for offside.
E. Choupo-Moting scored the only goal of Tuesday night’s match in the 40th.
