PSG Produce Sensational Comeback To Defeat Atalanta 2-1 In The Champions League
PSG, who were crowned Ligue 1 champions after the French league was cancelled in April, have never reached the final of the Champions League.
And it looked as though that wait would continue after Atalanta, who are playing their first-ever season in the Champions League, held a 1-0 lead for the majority of the match.
PSG were punished for that costly error as Duvan Zapata played the ball into the path of Mario Pasalic, who produced a superb finish to beat Keylor Navas from 16 yards out.
Kylian Mbappe was brought on in the second half as PSG tried their hardest to produce an equaliser.
The French side made their breakthrough in the 90th minute after Marquinhos' shot went in off Atalanta defender Mattia Caldara.
PSG sealed their stunning comeback minutes later after Mbappe set up Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who tapped in from six yards out.
