The German giants needed a four-goal margin victory to snatch the top spot in Group B. Despite a powerful performance against the visitors from Paris, the Bundesliga champions were unable to establish a four-goal advantage on home soil on Tuesday, reports Xinhua news agency.
So, it hasn't been an ideal start to the season for Bayern Munich, but now firmly atop the Bundesliga table and easily into the Champions League round of 16 via a win against one of the other truly terrifying teams in the competition, they look like their old selves again.
"We are unhappy about the defeat, but are pleased to have won the group". PSG leads with a difference of three points ahead of Bayern in group B.
However, Bayern's double goal-scorer was lucky to stay on the pitch during an attack in the area soon after. "We are still Bayern". Playing against his compatriots was obviously a source of motivation for him psychologically.
Meanwhile, Les Parisiens will travel to Munich with their confidence undoubtedly dented.
"At 3-1 for Bayern, when the players saw that they could not change the result, the team then sought to calm the game, to have control, and to keep a solid structure to contain Bayern and ensure the first place of the group".
Bayern-PSG ended with the Parisians taking their second loss this week. €180m man Kylian Mbappe scored PSG's only goal. That was the key to our win.
Juan Cuadrado settled any Italian nerves after 15 minutes and substitute Federico Bernardeschi sealed matters with a fine strike in the final moments. Last summers world record signing Neymar has epitomised PSG's Champions League success this year. It is a lesson for everybody.
Referee Cuneyt Cakir waved away the furious protest by Alves and Tolisso stayed on the pitch to help Bayern close out the win.
The Bavarians undefeated at the Allianz Arena since Heynckes returned as coach.
How could Real Madrid line-up if they bring in Neymar from PSG?
For all PSG's lavish spending, there was some irony in the fact Kingsley Coman, who they allowed to join Juventus in 2014, supplied the assist for the opener and the goal that put the game to bed. "When everyone is fit, we have a lot of potential in the squad and I see our prospects as being very positive, but we need all our players to do that, but I am confident", he said.
