UEFA: PSG defeat RB Leipzig to reach final


Paris Saint-Germain are through to the final of the Champions League for the first time after goals by Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Juan Bernat.

This saw them ease to a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig in a one-sided semi-final in Lisbon on Tuesday.

Bernat’s goal came in the 55th minute and snuffed out any hopes Leipzig had of a comeback.

Leipzig could not handle the world’s most expensive player, or the many other outstanding performers in the PSG side.
