Atalanta 1-2 PSG: PSG Complete Stunning Turnaround to Reach Champions League Semi-Finals

Published

Paris Saint-Germain are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after beating Atalanta in a stunning tie.

The French champions scored in the 90th and 93rd minutes to come through against the Italians.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting – yes, really – grabbed the winner to seal the stunning turnaround.

PSG were without Kylian Mbappe from the start due to the Frenchman’s recovery, leaving the onus on Neymar.

And the Brazilian tried his hardest to drag PSG through but he wasn’t able to do it.

The first half was all about the 28-year-old.

It seemed like barely a minute went by without the Brazilian being on the ball, although the results were mixed.

Outside of the box, Neymar was brilliant. He pulled the strings and got into many dangerous positions.

But once he got into those threatening areas, he couldn’t put the ball away.

He squandered two big chances to score, the first of which came just before Atalanta went 1-0 up.

Even Kylian Mbappe knew it was a shocker.

There was also this wayward effort just before half-time.

We also saw the Brazilian at his sumptuous best. This run in the first half was exquisite and a reminder of his skills.

He began to turn it on in the second half, producing this sublime nutmeg…

At times, it felt like Neymar vs Atalanta. But it ended with Marquinhos and Choupo-Moting grabbing the goals that sent PSG through.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is ready to send Kepa Arrizabalaga away on-loan.

The Sun says Chelsea are ready to send Kepa out on loan after landing Rennes keeper Edouard Mendy as their new first-choice.

While Chelsea insisted no decision has yet been taken on Kepa’s future, it is understood that Frank Lampard will assent to the Spaniard leaving on loan before next month’s deadline.

Kepa, 25, has struggled to live up to the world record £71m fee Chelsea paid Athletic Bilbao to land him as Thibaut Courtois’ replacement in 2018.

He fell out of favour last term after a series of high-profile errors before the lockdown.

And while the Spaniard regained his place at the outset of Project Restart, he lost it again to Willy Caballero for the FA Cup semi-final and Final.

Son Heung-min scored one and set up two as Tottenham advanced to the Europa League play-off round after a scare against Shkendija in North Macedonia.

Son, who scored four goals against Southampton last Sunday, turned provider to set up Argentine Erik Lamela to calmly score the opener.

Joe Hart, who was making his Spurs debut, was beaten by a stunning 20-yard finish by Valmir Nafiu.

But Son drilled the second before setting up Harry Kane for the third.

It was a decent performance by Jose Mourinho’s side, who meet Maccabi Haifa at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the play-off round next Thursday.

However, they went from dominating the tie to hanging on before two goals in the space of nine minutes put the game out of Shkendija’s reach.

Soon after Nafiu’s wonderful equaliser from outside the box, Besart Ibraimi had a chance to put the hosts ahead but headed wide.

Spurs regained control thanks mainly to another excellent performance by Son.
