Retro: Our Parisians' European run

A tough group, a memorable knockout stage...join us as we look back at Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League run in 2023/24.

Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Newcastle United. Three big names that join Paris Saint-Germain in Group F, one of the toughest of the season's competition. The Parc des Princes sees their idols get off to a great start though with a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund.

Kylian Mbappé and Achraf Hakimi get the goals, but the next time out in Newcastle does not go according to plan. The English side, back in the Champions League for the first time since 2001, inflict a defeat on the Parisians, who have to bounce back at home to AC Milan. They do with goals from Mbappé, Randal Kolo Muani and Kang-In Lee making it a memorable evening with a 3-0 win.

It was a game in which Warren Zaïre-Emery left his mark as he became the youngest French player to be named player of the match in a Champions League game.

At the San Siro, Milan battle back from conceding the opening goal to beat the Parisians before a late penalty from Mbappé earns a precious point against Newcastle. Everything is on the line for the first time in the season in Dortmund. Zaïre-Emery scores to get the point that takes his team into the knockout stages along with the hosts.

First up, it's Real Sociedad in the Last 16. PSG register a fine 2-0 win in the first leg thanks notably to a first Champions League goal from Bradley Barcola. A 2-1 victory in San Sebastian took Luis Enrique's men through comfortably.

It was back to Spain for the quarter-final as FC Barcelona were the opponents. After scoring in the first-leg defeat at home, Vitinha and Ousmane Dembélé find the net again in a 4-1 second leg victory that takes the Red-and-Blues into the semi-finals.

It is Dortmund, once more, who get the better of the Parisians, who hit the woodwork six times across the two legs of their last-four tie. 

It was a memorable, emotional season, one that will help the team grow ahead of their next European campaign.
