BVB beats PSG: International press reviews on reaching the final

After BVB’s double win against Paris St. Germain and the final, the international press celebrated the supposed underdog Borussia Dortmund and focused the Parisians’ attention primarily on the outgoing superstar Kylian Mbappé.

BVB has come full circle: for the first time since 2013, the Black and Yellows are in the Champions League final. The venue is once again the venerable Wembley Stadium in London. The opponent could also be the same if Bayern manage to beat Real Madrid in the second semi-final. Mats Hummels bought his ticket to London with his winning goal in Paris in the 50th minute. For the well-equipped PSG squad, the dream of winning the handle pot remains unfulfilled once again. Superstar Kylian Mbappé will try to win the missing title elsewhere from the new season.
