Share Story

In yet another concerning Champions League away loss, Paris Saint-Germain’s star forward, Kylian Mbappe, found himself ineffective as his team surrendered an early lead to AC Milan. The Parisians, who have shown their strength at home, have struggled on the road this season, and Tuesday’s match was no exception. Milan Skriniar capitalized on a Marquinhos flicked corner, heading home unmarked to put Milan on the scoreboard after just 10 minutes. A swift response from Milan saw Rafael Leao’s acrobatic volley level the game.

Despite coming close with a near goal by PSG, including a denied opportunity for Mbappe and a rattled crossbar by Ousmane Dembele, it was Milan who managed to take the lead early in the second half. Olivier Giroud, positioned at the back post, connected with Theo Hernandez’s cross, hammering a powerful header into the net. From that point onward, Milan dominated the midfield, consistently outpacing a sluggish Parisian side. The match concluded with PSG desperately feeding balls to Mbappe, hoping for a European miracle that never materialized.
