Bayern Munich, the 2020 champions, defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 (3-0 overall) in the night’s major game.

Neymar was absent due to a season-ending injury, and although the visitors appeared to be a shadow of their usual selves, the determined home team managed to grind out a win.

Marquinhos was injured in the first half, while Lionel Messi missed a chance to score early on.

The best chance to score came just before halftime, but a goal-line clearance by Matthijs de Ligt prevented Vitinha from scoring.

Bayern dominated the second half and eventually took the lead through Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who had an earlier goal overturned by VAR.

Despite PSG’s efforts to stage a comeback in the final half-hour, they struggled to find answers, and Bayern scored a late second goal through Serge Gnabry’s quick counter-attack to advance to the quarter-finals.

Messi and Kylian Mbappé were invisible on the pitch, while Sergio Ramos had two headers that failed to find the target.
