PSG’s 4 worst-ever collapses as Europe’s ‘biggest bottlers’ crumble again

PSG's quest for a first Champions League success came to an abrupt end on Wednesday evening after throwing away a 2-0 lead.

Reports in Spain claim PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi attempted to 'storm' into the referee's dressing room at full-time.

While on the pitch, Karim Benzema wreaked havoc with a quick-fire hat-trick that left the Parisian giants stunned.

However, throwing games away on the biggest stage is becoming a worrying trend for PSG – and one they must shake if they hope to hold the trophy one day.

And Daily Star Sport is looking at PSG's biggest moments they have bottled.

2022 – Real Madrid

After a moment of magic in the final minutes of the first leg, Kylian Mbappe was the showman once more, firing the French side ahead.

2-0 up, and with Real Madrid needing three to qualify, PSG looked set to move onto the next round.

However, Karim Benzema notched a quick-fire hat-trick as the French giants spectacularly collapsed in the second period.

In 2017, PSG claimed their biggest scalp to date when they put four past a Barcelona side that included an attack of Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suarez.
