Neymar and company had a bitter taste of defeat for the second time in a row, after Bayern Munich thrashed Paris Saint-German 3-1 in the final Group match to level on point with the French giants but finish second on the table.
In the weekend during the Ligue 1 matches, PSG tasted their first defeat in all competition when Strasbourg beat them 2-1 and second defeat comes immediately, making them lose in a row.
Bayern Munich needed to win by four goals to finish above PSG and they got off to a fine start with Robert Lewandowski’s close-range finish after eight minutes.
Both teams finished on 15 points, but PSG’s head-to-head record ensured they finished top.
The German champions will be unseeded when the draw for the knockout stage takes place next Monday at Uefa headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes declared himself satisfied with his side’s performance after the match, stating that “The game shows we are getting better, that we believe in ourselves,” he said.
