UEFA champions league 2020 PSG vs Atalanta highlights – Paris Saint-Germain pull off an incredible comeback in the final minutes of the game to beat Atalanta and move on to the semifinals of the Champions League for the first time since 1994-95 season. It was a match much like in the movies when the team which is almost at the brink of defeat, pulls off a heroic comeback at the very end to emerge victorious. But this was even better. The joy and thrill of winning was such that PSG Boss Thomas Tuchel shouted his lungs out at the end, probably to let the Parisians hear him all the way from Germany, that they had done it. They had made it to the Champions League semis, and that too on the day of the 50th birth anniversary of the club.uefa champions league 2020 psg vs atalanta highlights

Atalanta, who were in great form in Serie A this season, scoring 98 goals in 38 games, opened the scoring with Mario Pasalic’s 26th-minute goal and put themselves in the front. PSG Striker Neymar, who was adjudged the man of the match for his record 16 dribbles, the best tally in a single Champions League game since Messi against Manchester United in 2008, did a lot of running around the field, passing the ball through to the players, winning against Atalanta players. But he missed a lot of chances to score, the first one being in 5 minutes when his shot was wide of the goal post. He also missed the chance to level the score after Atalanta’s goal and another one right before halftime. Mbappe who was not present in the starting XI, was brought in at the hour-mark, also missed the chance to score around the 73rd minute and then around the 80th minute.

The cinematic climax of the game came around the final 5 minutes of the extra time allotted by the referee. Marquinhos scored the 90th-minute goal which was mis-hit by Neymar to make the scoreline level for the Ligue 1 Champions. But the real magic happened three minutes later when Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who was brought in as a substitute for Mauro Icardi in the 79th minute, slotted home a square ball from Mbappe to put PSG in the front. It was the latest regulation time game-winning goal in the history of Champions League quarterfinals. With this goal, Choupo-Moting has certainly put his name in the history of greatest winning goals in world football.
