Neymar’s Missed Penalty Leaves PSG Shattered in Champions League

It was a night of agony for Paris Saint-Germain fans on Wednesday night as Neymar’s missed penalty saw the French champions eliminated from the Champions League at the hands of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr.

The match was evenly poised at 1-1 after the first leg, with the second leg taking place at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh. PSG had the chance to take the lead in the match when Neymar was awarded a penalty in the 31st minute. However, the Brazilian forward failed to convert the spot kick, sending it over the bar.

The miss proved to be costly as Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr took the lead shortly after, with the Saudi Arabian sides going on to win the match 2-1. The result saw them progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League, while PSG were sent packing.

The result was a bitter pill to swallow for the French side, who had been hoping to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 1995. Neymar was left in tears after the match, and it was clear to see the disappointment on the faces of the PSG players as they trudged off the pitch.

Neymar’s missed penalty was the difference between success and failure for PSG, and the Brazilian will no doubt be looking to put the disappointment of the match behind him. For now, though, the French champions must pick themselves up and focus on the remainder of their season.
