Kylian Mbappe has revealed who is to blame for PSG's exit from the Champions League to Borussia Dortmund

Kylian Mbappe blamed himself for Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League semi-final defeat against Borussia Dortmund.

PSG lost 2-0 on aggregate to the Bundesliga side, losing 1-0 in both legs. Despite dominating, registering 43 shots and hitting the woodwork an incredible six times in more than 180 minutes of football, Les Parisiens failed to score.

Speaking to the media after the second leg at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night, Mbappe responded to PSG's inability to score.

“I tried to help my team as much as I could but I didn't do enough,” he said. “If we talk about efficiency in the box, I think I'm the one to be identified. I'm the one who has to score the goals and decide. If things are good, I stand out and if they're not, you have to take the shadow.

“The first one who should have scored tonight was me. That's life and we have to move forward, me and the team.

“I don't know if it's dad [Dortmund] they were better than us. We don't need to belittle them. In my humble opinion, they were the top of the two boxes. They came to ours once or twice and scored. We always went to theirs and we couldn't score. It is true.

“I don't like to talk about bad luck. If you're good, you don't hit the post, it goes in. Today we, the attackers, were not good enough.”

Mbappe is expected to leave PSG this summer when his contract expires, with Real Madrid a possible destination.

His last game for the club could have been against Madrid in the Champions League final at Wembley, but Dortmund will replace PSG. Madrid will face Bayern Munich in the second leg of the semi-finals on Wednesday, with everything to play for in the 2-2 draw at the Allianz Arena last week.
