PSG vs Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League

Before Covid-19 suspended the football calendar, PSG booked their spot in the Champions League quarterfinals.

PSG recorded a 3-2 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund in the last-16.

BVB won the first leg 2-1 at the Signal Iduna Park.

19-year-old sensation Erling Haaland scored a brace in that match, while the teenager marked the occasion with a meditation goal celebration.

In the second leg, however, PSG won 2-0 in Paris.

Neymar opened the scoring for PSG, and the Brazilian mimicked Haaland’s celebration at the Parc De Princes.

After the game, PSG’s players continued to mock the Norwegian teenager.


Neymar intended to mock Erling Haaland, confirms Marquinhos

PSG midfielder Marquinhos recently held an interview with YouTube channel Desimpedidos.

During that Q&A, Marquinhos confirmed that Neymar pre-planned to mock Haaland if he scored. He said:

He likes that. Neymar is not just a football player, he is not afraid and always responds to provocations.

After his goal, I asked him if he had taken everything out. He warned me.

I told him to wait until the end of the match, but he told me to leave it and not to stop it.
