PSG stand strong to avenge final heartbreak by knocking out Bayern Munich

PSG have exacted revenge on Bayern Munich by knocking out last season's Champions League winners at the quarter-final stage.

The Parisians, who fell 1-0 to Bayern in Lisbon last year, have now reached the semi-final stage of Europe's premier knockout competition for only the third time, despite losing 1-0 at the Allianz on Tuesday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were in pole position after claiming a 3-2 away win over the German outfit in the first leg.

And the Argentine made sure his team were disciplined enough to withstand the pressure from Bayern, who were without star striker Robert Lewandowski.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored with a close range header just before half-time.

But PSG were able to hold on to book a semi-final with either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund.
