Goal that shattered the dreams of PSG

PSG could be said to be unlucky when facing Borussia Dortmund, the Hosts lost with a score of 0-1 and had several opportunities thwarted by the goalposts. The current Ligue 1 winners hosted Dortmund in the semi-final second leg match which was held at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday(07th May 2024) while playing at home, Les Parisiens lost with a score of 1-0.

Mats Hummels was the winner for Dortmund, he broke through Les Parisiens' goal with a header from a corner kick at the start of the second half. Thanks to this result, Dortmund has the right to advance to the Champions League final this season with a 2-0 aggregate win. Meanwhile, PSG had to bite the bullet and was eliminated from the competition. PSG had many opportunities to score goals when facing Dortmund. Of the many opportunities, four hit the post or crossbar.

Like in the first half, Warren Zaire Emery fired a shot at Dortmund's goal from a narrow-angle. However, his attempt did not result in a goal because it hit the post. In the second half, there were three PSG players' shots that hit the post or crossbar. It was a shot by Nuno Mendes, Kylian Mbappe and Vitinha, the Hosts hit the post or crossbar four times against Dortmund. According to Opta, that is the most records in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

PSG coach Luis Enrique admitted that he was very disappointed in losing to Dortmund. Reflecting on the many opportunities he had, the 54-year-old coach felt his team should have won. "Honestly, I think we deserved to win this game," Enrique told TNT Sports. "We created 31 shots, hitting the goal post four times. In two matches, we hit the goalpost six times but didn't score. "Football is sometimes very unfair. Congratulations to Dortmund. They are a great team. I hope they can win the final."
