Neymar's "Rainbow-Flick" against Shaqiri – and the other 7 CL Sums
Messi's dream gate
Unbelievable as Lionel Messi catches PSV Eindhoven's defense from narrow corners to goal 1: 0 and then finds a gap between the legs of the defender.
Of course, Messi had legs in the game in 2-0. Gerard Piquea's free-kick assassin looked like a trial version, but Messi was not like that: "The shot was bad, fortunately Piqué and the ball landed in the goal," said superstar Barça.
Striker and back work – always a fine thing. Not so with Marco Reus: In a 0-0 draw against FC Bruges BVB superstar fought in a counterattack, Belgian Hans Vanaken in his own half of the field, with that ball away with world-class tackling. Lucien Favre will have a blast on the bench.
Neymar's "Rainbow Flick" against Shaqiri
Neymar was the most visible figure in Paris St-Germain is a 2-1 victory against Liverpool. Not only because of his acting – the Brazilian not only reached his 31st goal of the Champions League, which is now a record holder of his country, but was otherwise unstoppable.
In addition to substitutes Xherdan Shaqiri: Swiss Nati player was played by Neyamar, though "Rainbow-Flick", but then won a duel for the ball. And what does the PSG superstar do? Of course he complains of a foul.
As with the stop time, the 64-minute Neymar was not ideal. The creator Thiago Silva wanted to play with a defender on the left flank, but the Brazilian was simply indispensable. Instead of concentrating on the game, he invited fans in Paris to make a little more mood.
In 1-0 from Neymar, the strength of St-Germain's Paris was exemplary. Liverpoool Firmino lost the ball to the penalty area PSG at a time with a double pass between Neymaran and Kylian Mbappe who rose speed and put the ball into the box through Edinson Cavani. Neymar took advantage of the reflection – 12 seconds after the ball was wins, the ball flooded in the net. You can not play it better.
Tuchel's tactical trick
PSG coach Thomas Tuchel wondered exactly how Liverpool can get rid of its strength by letting the "Reds" print. Before Bernatt Neymar 1: 0 canceled back to open the room in the center of Liverpool. When there was plenty of room, the English were again surprised at the pace of the Paříjans.
Still ovation for Falcao
A standing ovation at a foreign stadium is something special. Not only does Cristiano Ronaldo know, but also Radamel Falcao. Colombian striker AS Monaco entered the 0-0 at Atletico Madrid 55 minutes into the game and was frenetic for fans of Wanda Metropolitano. The fans probably did not forget the 70 goals they scored for "Atléti" between 2011 and 2013. Falcao missed a penalty due to a friendly hello after 83 minutes.
