Tough 1-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain

Neymar scores the only goal of the game from the spot (11.) | RBL unable to reward performance with a goal | Remain third in UEFA Champions League Group H

A strong fight goes unrewarded! RB Leipzig suffered a 1-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in a strong duel in the French capital. It was a tough result to take, being the stronger team for long stretches of the game.
 
A controversial penalty in the eleventh minute was converted by Neymar, before RBL pushed for 80 minutes but were unable to take any of their chances to get on the scoresheet.
 
A good performance goes unawarded for RBL, who sit in third place in Group H with two games remaining.

Highlights

Image
Julian Nagelsmann made three changes to the lineup that faced Frankfurt...
Image
... with Nordi Mukiele, Emil Forsberg and Yussuf Poulsen coming into the starting XI.
Image
11th minute, goal for PSG: RBL start the game well, but unluckily go behind. Dayot Upamecano loses possession and Marcel Sabitzer is penalised for a challenge on Angel di Maria. The resulting penalty is converted by Neymar into the bottom right corner, Péter Gulácsi unlucky not to keep it out.
Image
12th minute: The Roten Bullen show a good response. Sabitzer's strike from 17 metres is deflected for a corner. Upamecano's header is tipped over the bar by Keylor Navas.
Image
31st minute: PSG are posing a threat on the counter and set-pieces: Kylian Mbappé's bicycle kick misses the target (15'), di Maria's effort is saved by Gulácsi (22'), before the Argentinian's long-range free-kick misses the target (31').
Image
38th minute: The team deserve compliments for their commitment to finding the equaliser. Yussuf Poulsen creates space for himself with an impressive turn but misses the target (36'), and Amadou Haidara's shot from 20 metres out is saved by Navas.
Image
40th minute: Ibrahima Konaté and Dayot Upamecano are solid at the back as they deny Mbappé (38') and Neymar (40').
Image
45+1st minute:Another chance for RBL! Dani Olmo crosses from the right, Emil Forsberg hits his volley over the bar. That is the final chance of the half.
Image
49th minute: Leipzig apply the pressure straight out of the blocks – Forsberg with the next chance, his effort going just wide of the post from a Mukiele ball. At the other end, Mbappé's volley flies over (58').
Image
60th minute: With an hour gone, Leipzig keep up the pressure – with the defence standing strong and good build ups in attack. The next chance starts with Poulsen (62') ...
Image
... who squares to substitute Justin Kluivert, but the pass is a little unaccurate. Paris Saint-Germain continue to have little impact on the game. The equaliser is long overdue (69').
Image
RB Leipzig refuse to give up, but clear chances still evade them. PSG sit deep and focus on defending. The hosts work half a chance through Rafinha, but Gulácsi is equal to it (90+4').
Image
Poulsen's effort (79', header over the bar) and two long shots from Sabitzer (89', wide right, 90+' blocked) come to nothing – and PSG hold on to a 1-0 victory. A bitter result for RBL, who are not rewarded for a strong performance.
