The Costa Rican made ten covers throughout the game and was the great savior of PSG to take the victory of German territory
The duel between Bayern Munich and PSG I had duels of great expectation in each position of the field but in the goal it was where there was more then Manuel Neuer and Keylor Navas they were going to see the faces.
They already did it on previous occasions such as in the final of the Champions League of 2019-2020 and now they had to face each other again in a two-game series where it was very clear that the forwards were going to have to work hard to break the lock they put on their goal.
After more than 90 minutes of action in the first crash, it was very clear that the one who came out with the smile on his face was Keylor Navas because it had maximum demand on the part of the Bavarian attack and stopped almost everything.
Time and time again, the Tico managed to clear the danger from his door by having saving interventions from the first minute of the game when he denied an opportunity to Frenchman Lucas Hernández and many others to players such as Thomas Muller, Benjamin Pavard, David Alaba and Joshua Kimmich who They tried by all means.
Post-game numbers indicate that Keylor Navas surpassed Manuel Neuer since it registered 10 stops of the 12 shots that committed him direct. These range from spectacular slaps to shots that he stopped thanks to his good location.
While on the side of Bayern Munich, Neuer received four direct shots and conceded three goals, that is, he only registered a superb save that was in a heads-up against Neymar, however, as rarely happens, they scored more than the shots that the German stopped. Even in the goals received, the World Champion of Brazil 2014 He showed that he was not yet in heat and did not get in the way of Kylian Mpabbpe’s shot correctly, which cost the ball to pass through his entire body and give the Parisians the advantage. In the other two goals, nothing is questioned and the rivals are given virtue for scoring.
In the case of the Costa Rican, in the goals he scored, he is exempt from all culpability since the header of Eric Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller were successful towards long space.

It is logical that the number of shots received by the team is conditioned by the proposal made by the technicians from the bench, since the Bayern Munich Being local and current European champion, he took the reins of the game, which led to them generating danger to Keylor’s trench. For his part, PSG he was defensive and bet on speed in the counterattacks, so they created few options but were lethal.
This is the first of two roundtrip commitments in this quarter-final series and it is guaranteed that next Tuesday at the Princes Park This goalkeeper duel will have a second half where the show is guaranteed.
