Tottenham, to which Son Heung-min belongs, lost 0-1 to AC Milan in the first leg of the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League round of 16 away. Tottenham (England) gave up the winning goal to Brahim Dias of AC Milan (Italy) in the 7th minute of the first half. Son Heung-min started as a left striker and played for 81 minutes until being substituted in the 36th minute of the second half, showing sharp free kicks and corner kicks, but no shots. Not only Son Heung-min, but also other Tottenham players such as Harry Kane were blocked by the opponent’s strong defense and could not show their skills. In order for Tottenham to advance to the quarterfinals, it must win the second home game on the 9th of next month with a difference of two goals or more. If the combined score of the first and second games is the same, overtime will go into overtime, and if the match is not decided, a penalty shoot-out will be held.
In another round of 16 first leg, Bayern Munich (Germany) defeated the home team Paris Saint-Germain (France) 1-0. Kingsle Komang scored the winning goal in the 8th minute of the second half. He made his professional debut at Saint-Germain in February 2013, when he was 16 years old, and refrained from scoring goals out of courtesy to his ‘family team’. Saint-Germain faced the risk of being eliminated from the round of 16 for two consecutive seasons after losing at home even after using Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe. Saint-Germain lost to Bayern Munich in the final of the 2019-2020 season and finished runner-up, the best performance ever. 바카라
