Di Maria, Neymar & Mbappe shines as PSG beats RB Leipzig 3-0 to reach first Champions Leagyue final on Tuesday night in Lisbon.
Manager Thomas Tuchel’s team seized control with an early goal with a wonderful header from Brazilian defensive midfielder Marquinhos,
PSG doubled its advantage when Angel Di Maria seized upon a loose pass from Peter Gulacsi, Leipzig’s goalkeeper, and completed a quick sequence of passes involving two teammates.
Leipzig’s vanishing hopes of a comeback disappeared early in the second half, when another defensive error allowed Juan Bernat to stretch PSG’s lead to three.
Though Leipzig offered an improved display in the second half, Ligue 1 holders rarely seemed threatened; Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, the team’s twin stars, could afford to smile at missed chances or wasted opportunities.
Either Bayern Munich or PSG’s domestic rival, Olympique Lyonnais, awaits the French champions in the final on Sunday. Those teams will meet Wednesday in the second semifinal.
