LIVE: CHAMPIONS LEAGUE REPORTS: ATALANTA 1-2 PSG

GOAL!!!!!

90+3mins: PSG Leads!!!! Choupo-Moting scores for PSG

Atalanta 1-1 PSG

Minutes are turning into seconds now. Can PSG survive?

87mins: Draxler (PSG) misses the target.

Chance for Draxler to shoot, but he blazes the effort over the top. Atalanta will be happy with that for the rest of the night.

86 mins: Choupo-Moting (Paris) misses the target.

After Caldara slices a cross over his own crossbar, Choupo-Moting, once of Stoke City, climbs highest to meet Draxler’s corner but heads it over.

85 mins: Atalanta fouling at will now. Palomino is booked this time.

84 mins: Hateboer (Atalanta) is penalised for a foul on Neymar (Paris).

82 mins: Substitution: Da Riva (in)Zapata (out) (Atalanta).

81 mins

Another big chance for Mbappe!

He’s in on the left and makes his way into the box before getting a left-footed shot away.

79 mins: Substitution for PSG

Rico (in)Navas (out)

73 mins:

Three changes for PSG, starting with an enforced one as Draxler and Paredes replace Gueye and Herrera.

Goalkeeper Navas had looked to be coming off with an injury but he’s OK to continue.

72mins: Substitutions: Draxler (in)Herrera (out) (Paris).

Paredes (in)Gueye (out) (Paris).

70mins: Substitution: Goal scorer, Pasalic replaced

Muriel (in)Pašalić (out) (Atalanta).

62mins: Mbappé’s first contribution is a cross into the box but not for the first time this evening there aren’t too many white shirts up there in support.

60 mins: Substitution: Palomino (in)Djimsiti (out) (Atalanta)

60 mins: Sub for PSG. Tuchel has seen enough. On comes Mbappe.

54 mins

Neymar pulls off a brilliant nutmeg before driving towards goal.

There’s nobody making a good run, however, and the attack comes to nothing.

It’s Neymar and 10 robots at the moment.

51mins: Neymar’s driven free-kick from 30 yards takes a deflection and goes behind

50 mins: Neymar shows brilliant skill to skip past two players but Marten de Roon pulls him back.

He’s booked for his troubles.

49 mins:  Atalanta are dominating and preparing to make substitution. Not a defensive one as expected. They appear still hungry for goals.

No changes for either side but Mbappe was warming fairly thoroughly at the break.

The second half begins.

Another big miss from Neymar!

He intercepts another loose pass and drives through on the left. The keeper is out of position but the Brazilian shanks his left-footed finish high and wide.

40 mins

Close!

Sarabia is played into loads of space on the left and makes his way towards the box before trying to find Icardi in the centre.

His low cross is good but just too far out of the Argentine’s reach!

37 mins

Berat Djimsiti picks up the game’s first yellow for a foul on Icardi.

32 mins

All PSG’s good attacking play has come through Neymar down the left so far but he’s getting little support.

If only a certain Kylian Mbappe was fit.
