Sport

Paris Saint-Germain’s stars made sure their fans knew how they felt about the boisterous support outside the empty Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

PSG beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to advance to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals with a 3-2 aggregate win.

The fans brought the atmosphere outside the stadium during and after the match, dodging coronavirus fears and governmental advice.

Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria and a host of PSG players then climbed atop the stadium to salute the supporters as they partied into the night.

PSG’s players also caught plenty of flak for celebrations in their locker room, as Mbappe and other posted video mocking BVB star Erling Haaland’s yoga goal celebration.

Back to the partying with the fans… the club sure leaned into it on social media. PSG is pulling out all the stops to build momentum in a competition that has not seen them reach a semifinal this century.
