Matthijs de Ligt pulls off 'monster save' from the line against PSG after major howler from Yann Sommer

Matthijs de Ligt spared Yann Sommer’s blushes after a “monster” clearance off the line in Bayern Munich’s Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG travelled to the Allianz Arena on Wednesday for their second-leg round-of-16 tie against Bayern, who defeated the Ligue 1 side 1-0 at the Parc des Princes in the first leg in February.

The defending French champions are without Neymar, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to injury, with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe leading the frontline.

Christophe Galtier’s men came close to breaking the deadlock before half-time after Bayern shot-stopper Sommer made a sloppy error after coming under pressure from PSG players.

Sommer, who has been promoted to Bayern No 1 after Manuel Neuer’s injury back in December, attempted to beat PSG right-back Achraf Hakimi and recklessly played the ball out into the path of midfielder Vitinha.

Vitinha pounced on the opportunity from Sommer and fired a shot at the empty Bayern net, only for De Ligt to scramble back in time to produce a world-class clearance off the line.

“De Ligt is nothing short of world class,” one fan said.

Someone else commented: “Really, what an insane save that was from De Ligt.”

“Still can’t stop thinking about De Ligt’s save,” a third Twitter user added.

Another fan wrote: “Sensational save by De Ligt. What a lad.”

While a fifth tweeted: “That was some absolute monster save by De Ligt.”

Bayern and PSG head into the break 0-0 at the Allianz Arena, with Julian Nagelsmann’s men leading 1-0 on an aggregate scoreline.
