Neymar’s first-half penalty helped ease the pressure on boss Thomas Tuchel as Paris-St Germain leapfrogged RB Leipzig in Group H of the Champions League.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side rallied but some wasteful finishing prevented them from equalising. The Brazilian scored his first goal in six matches in the competition after Angel di Maria had been fouled.
Leipzig drop to third in the group and are three points behind leaders Manchester United with two games left. Both of those teams are now on six points in Group H, three behind leaders United.
Basaksehir prop up the table with three points. Next up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side: PSG at home. Having already done a number on last season’s finalists away, and needing just one more point, they’ll be confident of doing enough to make it through to the knockouts, especially as they’re now on a seven-game winning streak at Old Trafford, running up an aggregate score of 24-2.
Mind you, if they give Neymar and Mbappe the chances they gave Basaksehir tonight … it promises to be a great match, put it that way.
