The magnitude of Paris Saint-Germain’s sensational come-from-behind win over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League last Wednesday still has supporters buzzing and now, the club is one win away from their first finals appearance.
On this episode of The 1970, which was recorded during last Thursday’s match between RB Leipzig and Atlético Madrid, I return to host and I’m joined as always by fellow contributor Marc Damon.
We open the show with Marc’s thoughts on PSG’s mentality and strategy against Atalanta and the improbable hero that was Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who scored the game-winning goal in stoppage time.
After watching PSG collapse under pressure and fail to grind out a victory in past seasons, we’re finally seeing this squad show that they are mentally tough and now, the role players are stepping up when the superstars fail to get on the scoresheet.
Looking ahead to next Tuesday’s match, we discuss potential problems Leipzig could cause PSG and who Thomas Tuchel should start with Angel Di Maria coming back from suspension and Marco Verratti potentially being able to play after a muscle injury kept him out of the Atalanta match.
