The European press draws a critical but not definitive observation after PSG’s defeat in Dortmund on Wednesday in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League (1-0). “Kylian Mbappé will have to make a comeback,” warn the Catalan media. The English are more severe.

On unfavorable waiver but far from being out. The defeat of PSG in Dortmund (1-0) in the semi-final first leg of the Champions League was greeted with cynicism and irony by the European press. But also with the idea that Paris still has every chance of qualifying for the final. “If this is to be Kylian Mbappé’s last dance before leaving for Real Madrid, he had better deliver a pretty dazzling tango in Paris next week (Tuesday, 9 p.m., on RMC Sport 1), if he has a chance to meet his potential suitors in the final”, launches the Daily Mail.

“Sancho 1-Mbappé 0”

“The only consolation for him and his teammates is that they will be content with this score, after an evening where they looked like the Paris Saint-Germain of yesteryear, all divas and directionless. They have the talent to turn things around, like they did against Barcelona in the quarter-final, but they will have to be much better than that.”

“Sancho 1 – Mbappé 0”, headlines the Daily Mail Sports section, May 1, 2024 – Capture Daily Mail

For the Daily Star, the 2018 world champion took a “German lesson”. The English tabloids are also enjoying the return to the forefront of English international Jadon Sancho, who failed at Manchester United and excelled on Wednesday. “A fiery Sancho warms up Dortmund,” greets the Mirror. “Sancho 1-Mbappé 0”, insists the Daily Mail in its paper version.

The Spanish press also urges Mbappé, likely a future Real Madrid player next season, to react. “Mbappé will have to come back,” notes the Madrid newspaper Marca, in an allusion to the Parisian comeback (1-4) during the quarter return to Montjuic. Same lexical field for Sport (“PSG forced to come back”) when As notes: “Mbappé stumbles on the yellow wall”.

The German press is savoring the “exploit” of BVB. “BVB is suddenly closer to the final than Bayern,” laughs Sportbild in reference to the draw conceded at home by Bayern against Real Madrid (2-2) on Tuesday. The local daily Ruhr Nachrichten distributes good points to Hummels and Schlotterbeck who “grilled” Mbappé. He also salutes the unrecognizable Karim Adeyemi, regularly criticized for his lack of defensive withdrawal but impeccable on this point on Wednesday. “It’s as if he had been replaced,” smiles the newspaper. “The BVB is causing a sensation, anything is possible, the BVB can dream of the title,” Waz, the Dortmund newspaper, finally raves.
