Paris Saint-Germain witnessed Erling Braut Haaland’s sharpness, as the Norwegian player bought up two goals in the victory won by Borussia Dortmund earlier this morning. Even so, coach Thomas Tuchel was not necessarily pessimistic about the chances of his team to qualify for the round of eight.
Playing at Signal Iduna Park, Paris Saint-Germain continues to be able to dominate. Their characteristics are indeed mastering the ball, statistics also seem so with 52 percent of ball possession recorded by Les Parisiens.
Strike after strike was also released by Thomas Tuchel’s troops through their trio of attack lines, Neymar-Icardi-Mbappe. Unfortunately, who first conceded it was the goalpost Keylor Navas. Erling Haaland’s cheat on the 69th minute cannot be dammed by the former Real Madrid.
Six minutes later, the visitors were able to equalize through Neymar’s goal. Unfortunately, two minutes later Navas picked up the ball from his own net again after Erling Braut Haaland scored the second goal.
Paris Saint-germain eventually fell behind another 1-2, and they failed to take advantage of the remaining time available to equalize again.
This defeat does not necessarily make PSG opportunities to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League this season closed. Because in the second leg match, turn to Les Parisiens who will host the German Bundesliga representative at the Parc Des Princes.
Despite acknowledging that the players lacked confidence in the match earlier, coach Thomas Tuchel is very confident of the opportunities in the second leg next March 12.
“We just lack confidence, lose the ball easily, and complicate ourselves. We do not have the right rhythm to play and must find it in the second leg in Paris later,”
“We lost 1-2, and we should be able to play much better in tonight’s game. There is still one more match at the Parc and we have everything needed to win, “said the figure who once handled Die Borussen.
This narrow defeat forced les Parisiens to at least have to win with a score of 1-0 in the second leg in Paris. Or, they can qualify for the last eight if they win by a gap of two goals.
