PSG reaching Champions League final ´a dream´ – Al-Khelaifi

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was left struggling for words after the club achieved their dream of reaching a first Champions League final.

PSG eased past RB Leipzig 3-0 in Tuesday’s semi-final thanks to goals from Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Juan Bernat in Lisbon.

Marquinhos put PSG ahead in the 11th minute, powerfully meeting Di Maria’s cross, before the latter got in on the action three minutes prior to half-time following some sublime skill from Neymar.

Di Maria then teed up Bernat near the hour mark to ensure PSG await Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich or French rivals Lyon in Sunday’s final.

PSG – who remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple in 2019-20 – have dominated domestic football in France since Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) purchased the team in 2011, but the capital club are within touching distance of the coveted European crown that has long deserted them.

“It’s an historic evening,” Al-Khelaifi told RMC Sport. “This is the first time that we have gone to the Champions League final. The players, they had a magnificent match, it’s a magnificent evening against a difficult team. 

“I am proud of the technical staff. We played great matches after difficult times. Now we will play the final. This is a dream. I hope he will continue. I don’t know what to say because it’s a wonderful evening.”
