Keylor Navas delivered a capital performance on Wednesday against Bayern, greeted as it should on social networks.
Author of two of the three Parisian goals, Kylian Mbappé is for much in the victory gained by the PSG on the lawn of the Allianz Arena (2-3). The tricolor world champion has also left Munich with the man of the match trophy. But at the other end of the field, Keylor Navas was not left out. The Costa Rican goalkeeper has indeed multiplied the parades, contributing just as much as the French to the success achieved by Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

His statistics in goal testify to his dantesque performance. The last Parisian rampart thus carried out no less than 10 parades, including several exceptional on its line, against only one for Manuel Neuer. And if he conceded two goals on which he could not do anything, the former Madrid player was constantly under pressure. Evidenced by the 31 shots attempted by the German champions, the 26 crosses made by Benjamin Pavard or others or between the 15 corners conceded by the Parisians. By way of comparison, PSG only shot six times on goal, delivered only three crosses and benefited from only one corner.
Another proof of the extraordinary match delivered by Keylor Navas: he is the second Parisian player to have touched the most balls. With 55 balls touched, he is only preceded by Idrissa Gueye who surpasses him by only one unit.
Social networks were not mistaken and ignited for the performance of the Costa Rican.

When Navas walks outside after curfew, the police don’t stop him. It’s Navas who stops the police. #BAYPSG

We cannot thank Real Madrid enough for Navas. A gift from God. We almost forgot about it, Jesé. Almost.
