Holders Bayern Munich won 1-0 on the night, but exited the UEFA Champions League on away goals after their quarter-final tie with Paris Saint-Germain ended 3-3 on aggregate.
As it happened
END OF THE LINE
Bayern win 1-0 on the night but exit in the quarter-finals, as PSG go through on away goals.
ALMOST FROM SANE!
Alaba picks out Sane with a brilliant cross-field pass from left to right. Sane beats Bakker and has a full view of the penalty area, with Müller and Musiala waiting for a pass, but Sane opts to fizz it across the six-yard box and Navas leaps on it gratefully.
FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON
We're into the first of four minutes of stoppage time now. If anyone can find a goal in that time, it's Bayern.
VITAL FROM NEUER!
PSG break forward after a Bayern attack breaks down. Mbappe slides a pass into Neymar, who only has Neuer to beat... or does he? The Bayern goalkeeper sprints out to intercept the ball before the PSG playmaker can get there.
HERRERA FOR DI MARIA
PSG bring on an extra body in the middle of the pitch as they look to see out the tie.
MARTINEZ'S AERIAL THREAT
The big Spaniard comes on for Choupo-Moting, who's run himself into the ground. Martinez is a defensive midfielder by trade, but he'll play high up here as Bayern push for a decisive second goal.
JUST WIDE FROM SANE!
The Germany winger turns Bakker inside-out on the right-hand corner of the PSG box. He finds space to shoot and goes for the back post with his weaker right foot but it whistles just wide of the target!
MBAPPE GOAL DISALLOWED
Mbappe bears down on goal with just Neuer to beat. He has a teammate with him but rifles a shot into the net. It won't count though, as he was offside when he made his run.
CHANCE FOR KEAN!
The PSG sub with a glorious chance to score as he drives into space inside the box but he gets his angles wrong and blazes well over the bar.
NEXT CHANGE FOR PSG
Kean replaces Draxler in attack for the home side.
FIRST SUB FOR BAYERN
We're into the final 20 minutes now and with Bayern needing a goal, Flick brings on Musiala for Davies. Alaba will go to left-back now, with Musiala going into midfield alongside Kimmich.
COMAN AT THE BACK POST!
Coman is unmarked at the back post as he receives a lofted cross from the right. He cushions a fine header back into the middle, looking for Müller, but Paredes gets there first at full stretch and pokes the ball clear.
NEUER OFF HIS LINE!
Draxler sprints down the PSG left and gets to the byline before pulling the ball back into the middle towards Neymar. Neuer anticipates the danger though and leaps on to it to snuff out the threat.
MÜLLER ALMOST IN!
Superb stuff from Sane, who cuts inside Bakker on the Bayern right and slices a low diagonal pass through the PSG defence, behind Kimpembe and into Müller's run. It's a difficult one to take for the Bayern attacker, and he's crowded out as Navas comes off his line.
FIRST SUB FOR PSG
Diallo is taken off after appearing to injure his left hamstring. Bakker comes on to replace him at left-back.
FOUR IN FIVE FOR CHOUPO-MOTINGThe 32-year-old scored in the first leg and is on target here tonight, taking his tally to four Champions League goals this term, all of which have come in his last five outings. He also has one in the Bundesliga and two in the DFB Cup in 2020/21.

SO CLOSE FROM PSG!
Di Maria brings a ball down on his chest at the back post, skips past Davies and draws Neuer towards him before sliding the ball across the six-yard box. Neymar slides in and just needs a touch to score, but he can't quite reach it and Boateng gratefully puts it out for a corner at the back post!
Di Maria slides a pass behind Bayern's high backline for Mbappe to chase. For a moment he looks to be through on goal, but Neuer sprints out of his box to clear the danger.
OVER FROM NEYMAR!
Paredes chips the ball over the Bayern defence, right into Neymar's run. The Brazilian controls it on his chest and shoots quickly, but it's too high and sails well over.
AGONISINGLY WIDE FROM ALABA!
Müller sprays the ball to the right to Sane, who immediately jinks into the box. He tries to pick out Müller with a cross but it's just behind him. It's partially cleared to just outside the area, but Alaba is lurking there. He gets a shot off but doesn't quite catch it as he'd like to and it bounces wide of the post.
UNDERWAY ONCE MORE
PSG kick-off the second half. No changes from either side at the break.
NARROW LEAD FOR BAYERN!So far so good for Bayern, who lead 1-0 on the night. They still need another one to go through, of course, but PSG have hit the woodwork twice, Neymar striking the post and crossbar before Choupo-Moting's opener. We're set for a real humdinger after the break!

TWO MINUTES ADDED ON
We're into stoppage time now, not long to go before the half-time teas...
ALABA FROM RANGE!
The Austrian, playing in central midfield tonight, shoots from 25 yards. It's a brilliant strike, but Navas pulls off an equally brilliant save, diving high to his right to tip it around the post!
3-3 ON AGGREGATE, PSG THROUGH AS IT STANDS
Bayern still need another goal if they're to go through, given PSG's three away goals in the first leg.
CHOUPO-MOTING PUTS BAYERN IN FRONT!
Müller lays the ball off to Alaba, who shoots from 10 yards. Navas makes a good save but the ball loops up high into the sky. There are a couple of PSG defenders covering, but Choupo-Moting shows greater determination to win the rebound and nod it in from close range!
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
GOAL!0 : 1
NEYMAR HITS THE POST!
A combination of Draxler, Neymar and Mbappe surge forward and the latter again draws two defenders to him before slotting it into Neymar's run. The Brazilian prods it past Neuer but it comes back off the post!
NEYMAR HITS THE BAR!
DI Maria's free-kick from the left is only half-cleared by Kimmich. It falls kindly to Neymar on the left-hand corner of the Bayern penalty area. He jinks past Coman and curls a lovely shot towards the top corner, but it hits the top of the bar and goes out of play! A big let-off for Bayern there.
THREE SHOTS APIECE
Bayern have still had more of the ball but PSG are looking very dangerous on the counter. Both teams have had three efforts at goal, but none of Bayern's have been on target, compared to two for the home side.
NEUER SAVES FROM NEYMAR AGAIN!
Neymar drives into the Bayern box on the left-hand corner and does a flurry of step-overs to create some space. He shoots towards the near post, but Neuer is alive to the danger and gets a big paw on it to save.
SANE LIVELEYThe Germany international has been a bright spark for Bayern so far and narrowly fired wide of goal with his first shot.

NEUER DENIES NEYMAR!
A huge, huge save from Neuer to keep Bayern in the tie. Mbappe draws two defenders towards him on the left side of the box before squaring it into the middle. There's nobody there but Neymar is arriving and has a free shot at goal... but Neuer stands tall to make a brilliant save.
KIMMICH SIGHT OF GOAL!
Bayern's high press is again too much for PSG and this time it's Kimmich's turn to shoot. He's in space, 25 yards from goal, but he drags his shot wide of Navas' post!
WIDE FROM SANE!
A glorious chance for Sane, who finds space on his preferred left foot, right on the edge of the PSG box. He curls a powerful shot low towards the far post, but misses his target by a couple of inches.
BAYERN ALMOST IN!
Flick's side are pressing high and in numbers, trying to pen their hosts into the corner. The French champions try to play their way out and string together some lovely one-touch passing. Just when it looks like they're clear, however, Coman intercepts and sends Müller into space on the left. The 31-year-old instantly crosses for Choupo-Moting, who's lurking in the middle, but Danilo manages to clear.
CHANCES AT BOTH ENDS!
Alaba gets to the byline on the left and pulls it back for Choupo-Moting. The ball's intercepted but falls to Kimmich on the edge of the area, but his first touch is heavy and PSG immediately go on the counter with Mbappe, Neymar and Di Maria charging forward. The latter tries to flick the ball up and over the Bayern defence for Neymar to collect inside the Bayern box, but Neuer is alert to come off his line and collect.
DI MARIA BACK
After a big of magic spray, Di Maria is back on the pitch.
DI MARIA DOWN
The Argentinian winger is on the ground in some discomfort following a challenge with Davies. He's receiving treatment but looks OK to continue.
The Reds have had 55 per cent of possession so far and are spending a good deal of time in PSG's half, but they're being forced to bide their time against a well-drilled home rearguard.
MILESTONE FOR ALABA
This is David Alaba's 425th competitive outing for Bayern, equalling Franck Ribery's record as the foreign player with most appearances for the club.
MÜLLER HEADER, NAVAS SAVE!
Kimmich crosses into the box and Müller gets his head on it, but it's a bit behind him and he can't get any power or direction on it, and Navas saves comfortably.
FIRST OPENING FOR BAYERN!
Coman beats the offside trap and sprints away down the left to collect a long ball forward. He's too wide to have a shot, so checks his run and lays it back to Choupo-Moting. The Cameroon international takes a touch to control but wants just a tad too long to get a shot away, and a PSG defender recovers to clear the danger.
THE BAYERN PRESS
Hansi Flick's side are pressing high up the pitch when PSG are in possession, aggressively closing them down as they look to win it back. They'll have to be wary of counter-attacks though, as Mbappe is lurking on the shoulder of the last man and is looking to run into space whenever possible.
CHANCE FOR MBAPPE!
An early warning sign for Bayern as Neymar slips Mbappe in behind down the right-hand channel. He drives into the box and aims a shot for the far corner, but drags it wide of the upright.
AND WE'RE OFF!
Bayern get the ball rolling in Paris!
POCHETTINO: 'BAYERN THE BEST IN THE WORLD'
Mauricio Pochettino believes the holders will make his PSG side suffer in Paris. "Bayern are the best team in Europe, the best team in the world," he admitted. "It'll be tough to keep the ball and hurt them. We've been better away than at home this season. Everything is still wide open."
Bayern are unbeaten in their last 17 Champions League away games (W13, D4). They hadn't lost in 19 home and away until last week's narrow defeat - Hansi Flick's first in the competition as a coach.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE BOTTLERS?
PSG got to this stage by topping their group and beating Barcelona in the previous round. They won 4-1 at Camp Nou, but were nowhere near as convincing in the second leg on home soil. A 1-1 draw was the final score, with Keylor Navas saving a Lionel Messi penalty before half-time. And who can forget their infamous collapse at the hands of the Catalans in the 2016/17 round of 16? PSG won the home leg 4-0 and led 5-3 on aggregate in the 88th minute of the return fixture, only for Barca to score three late goals and progress. The Parisians also bowed out at the same stage in 2018/19. After winning their away leg at Manchester United 2-0, they succumbed to a last-gasp 3-1 defeat on their own patch, exiting the competition on away goals. There is precedent ...
Don't forget Bayern fired off 31 shots on goal in the first leg. On another day, they might have racked up a cricket score. The PSG rearguard, especially without Marquinhos, is by no means water-tight. The key, as Thomas Müller put it at Monday's pre-match press conference, is to "find the right balance between attack and defence."
Bayern have come from behind to win on more than one occasion in this season's Bundesliga. The record champions are no stranger to turning the tables in Europe, either. Back in the 2014/15 Champions League quarter-finals, Bayern overcame a 3-1 deficit by thrashing Porto 6-1 in the second leg to record a resounding 7-4 aggregate win. FIVE of their goals fell before half-time...
THOMAS MÜLLER: 'WE NEED TO BE MORE PRECISE'
FLICK: 'THESE ARE THE GAMES PLAYERS JOIN BAYERN FOR'
Hansi Flick was typically bullish in his pre-match press conference. "We know it’s not going to be easy, but we also know we’re going to do everything we can to reach the semi-finals," Bayern's head coach told media. "We’re confident, and full of optimism. We were all very disappointed after the first leg. Now we have to make sure that tomorrow that we show the same efficiency that Paris showed against us last Wednesday. We have to force them into mistakes, defend well and score at least two goals. It’s a tough challenge, but we’re all looking forward to it. These are the games players join Bayern for. We’re all out to spring a little surprise in Paris."
WIN OR BUST
Bayern have to win following their wholly undeserved 3-2 reverse at the Allianz Arena. Not only that, but they need to win by at least two goals on the night to advance. A 3-2 Bayern victory is the only result inside 90 minutes that could force extra-time. A draw or defeat would send the holders out.
BAYERN TEAM NEWS
Robert Lewandowski returned to training on Monday, but didn't travel. Leon Goretzka did, but doesn't make the matchday squad, so it's a midfield double pivot of Joshua Kimmich and David Alaba. Alphonso Davies starts at left-back, with Lucas Hernandez slotting into the middle alongside Jerome Boateng. Kingsley Coman shakes of a knock to line up in attack alongside Leroy Sane and Thomas Müller. Ex-PSG man Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting leads the line once more. Jamal Musiala, 18, is among a seven-man bench.
PSG TEAM NEWS
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas shakes off a knock to start, but influential defender Marquinhos is out with an injury sustained in the first leg, while right-back Alessandro Florenzi is only fit enough for a place on the bench. Marco Verratti is also among the substitutes, with Idrissa Gueye partnering the returning Leandro Paredes in the middle of the park. Kylian Mbappe leads a front three that has Neymar and former Schalke and Wolfsburg man Julian Draxler in supporting roles.
Bayern Munich may have been edged 3-2 by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final, but the defending European champions remain favourites against Neymar and Co., injured Robert Lewandowski or not. Stay tuned for live text build-up and match commentary...
Lewandowski told Sky Sports over the weekend he won't be taking any risks after sitting out last week's 3-2 loss in Munich with a knee injury sustained on international duty with Poland. The 2020 FIFA Best Men's Player would be a loss for any side - he was instrumental in Bayern’s clean sweep of six trophies in the last year and has been in imperious form again this campaign with a personal best haul of 35 goals in the Bundesliga - but the European champions have the means to cope. Former PSG striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Müller were on target in the first leg - a game which Bayern could have won by a landslide after rattling off 31 attempts on goal. Leroy Sane began Saturday's 1-1 draw with Union Berlin on the bench, with Alphonso Davies another regular afforded a full recharge over the weekend due to a domestic suspension. Niklas Süle and Serge Gnabry are definitely out, but head coach Hansi Flick does name Kingsley Coman and Jerome Boateng in his starting line-up following minor injury complaints. Lucas Hernandez also makes the grade, but Leon Goretzka is not involved, despite travelling. Jamal Musiala, who scored his fifth competitive goal of the campaign against Union, is on the bench ahead of a match Bayern need to win by two clear goals to progress to the semi-finals.
PSG have personnel troubles of their own. The difference between a fortuitous win and a heavy loss in Munich, first-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas was substituted off early in the defending Ligue 1 champions' 4-1 win at Strasbourg on Saturday, but is passed fit to start. Influential defender Marquinhos isn't involved due to a groin injury sustained in the first leg, while left-back Layvin Kurzawa is another big miss. With Juan Bernat out, former Mainz and Borussia Dortmund man Abdou Diallo has the unenviable task of trying to stop Bayern No.10 Sane. Alessandro Florenzi is the preferred option on the opposite flank, but has to settle for a place on the bench after only returning to training this past weekend. The same applies to Marco Verratti, meaning Idrissa Gueye partners the returning Leandro Paredes in central midfield. Germany international Julian Draxler started at the Allianz Arena, and continues alongside Neymar and Angel Di Maria in an attacking three behind Kylian Mbappe sure to be feeling the weight of PSG's past Champions League knockout exists against the likes of Chelsea, Barcelona and Manchester United.
