Suara.com – Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker Kylian Mbappe seems addicted to breaking into Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer after helping his team win 3-2 in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Thursday (8/4/2021) early morning Western Indonesian Time.
Mbappe was an important figure in PSG’s victory over Bayern at the Allianz Arena. He broke into Neuer’s goal twice.

The victory at the Allianz Arena is clearly an important asset for PSG, who will host Bayern at the Parc des Princes for the second leg on Tuesday (13/4/2021) next week.
