PSG will play Man City or Borussia Dortmund in the next round of the competition.

Matches are being played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it did not stop eager PSG supporters from waiting for their favourite players after the huge victory.

Mbappe was in his car leaving the Parc des Princes and had to stop because of the crowd.

The World Cup winner fist-bumped a fan before driving off, while Diallo followed closely behind him.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the game’s only goal of the second leg as Neymar struck the woodwork twice.

But Bayern’s win on the night was not enough as Mbappe’s brace and another goal from Brazilian star Neymar in the first leg proving vital.

Pochettino, who replaced Thomas Tuchel in the PSG hot seat in January, was thrilled with his side’s triumph.

He told BT Sport: “It was a really tough match and I am really happy because the players deserve the credit. We are so happy for them, the club, the president.

“When you are on the touchline, close to the pitch, it is not easy to enjoy it, but I try enjoy it every time.

“I am calm on the outside, but inside you are dealing with the stress of the competition, but that is the adrenaline of it that you love to feel and tonight was a fantastic game.”
