Neymar and Lionel Messi apologise to PSG ultras after 1-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 first leg – just days after defender Presnel Kimpembe says sorry to fans after Ligue 1 loss at Monaco
- Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint Germain 1-0 in their Champions League clash
- Kingsley Coman scored the only goal after an error from Gianluigi Donnarumma
- Lionel Messi and Neymar apologised to their home fans after the result
Paris Saint Germain stars led by Lionel Messi and Neymar offered an apology to fans on Tuesday after their 1-0 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich.
It was a night to forget for the French giants, as they struggled to find a way into the game until Kylian Mbappe’s introduction after half time and went behind after a goalkeeping error from Gianluigi Donnarumma let Kingsley Coman’s shot in.
They will now need to beat Bayern at the Allianz Arena next month if they are to advance in Europe.
The PSG players acknowledged their poor showing after the game, as Neymar and Messi took the players to the club’s ultras to offer a meek apology and thank them for their support.
There was an excellent atmosphere from the home fans despite the performance, as the supporters sang for their side throughout the game despite a lack of energy from their players.

Mbappe did threaten to bring PSG back into the tie and put the ball in the net twice, but both were ruled out for offside as Bayern held on to a vital away lead.
The result marks a worrying trend for Christophe Galtier’s side, who have now lost five across all competitions this year.
It is not even their first apology to fans of 2023, after Presnel Kimpembe spoke to away fans at Monaco after a 3-1 loss on Saturday.
‘On the ground, it’s nonsense, we know,’ reports in GOAL claim he told them, ‘the only thing I can say is thank you for coming.
‘Now, don’t let us go, we still need you. We will remobilise in the locker room, do things properly and we will get moving on Tuesday.’
The Frenchman failed to live up his promise against Bayern, and PSG will now travel to Bavaria with it all to do on Wednesday, March 8.
