Mbappe's Dream Farewell Dashed as PSG Bows Out of Champions League

Posted : 08 May 2024

Kylian Mbappe's departure from Paris Saint-Germain will not culminate in the dream farewell he envisioned, as their stunning Champions League exit against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday dashed his hopes of bidding adieu in the final at Wembley next month. After seven years with PSG, the 2018 World Cup winner is set to depart when his contract expires at the season's end, with Real Madrid emerging as his likely destination.


The Qatar-owned club, seeking their maiden Champions League title, entered the semifinal second leg against Dortmund as favorites, aiming to overturn a one-goal deficit from the first leg. However, their efforts fell short as Mats Hummels' solitary goal sealed Dortmund's 2-0 aggregate victory, ending PSG's European aspirations.


Despite PSG's relentless attacking display, which saw Mbappe and three teammates striking the woodwork in the second half, coach Luis Enrique lamented their misfortune, emphasizing their need for clinical finishing.


Mbappe echoed this sentiment, acknowledging the need for greater efficacy, especially from himself, in seizing scoring opportunities. Yet, with PSG's agonizingly close brush with a final berth reminiscent of their loss to Bayern Munich four years prior, Mbappe's quest to lift the European Cup with his hometown club remains unfulfilled.
