RB Leipzig Manager Nagelsmann Anticipates Making Tactical Changes for Champions League Rematch Against PSG

It was only a couple of months ago that Paris Saint-Germain defeated RB Leipzig by a 3-0 final score in the UEFA Champions League semifinal stage. PSG then advanced to the Champions League final while Leipzig was sent home following the contest.

For Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, he is very much looking forward to meeting PSG again in next week’s Champions League group stage encounter. This time around, PSG will be without several players due to injury. But still, Nagelsmann knows that he may need to make significant changes with the team’s setup. Nagelsmann spoke further during a recent press conference (via RMC Sport) on the approach to facing PSG once again.

“We are going to have two important games against one of the best teams in Europe,” Nagelsmann said. “We are going to have to play a little differently than what we did in the semifinals last season. Now we have to win: one game would be good, both would be perfect. We have to show a different face in these two games.”

Leipzig may need this win in order to remain in contention to possibly clinch a spot in the Champions League knockout stage. If Leipzig is unable to clinch a win against PSG, the German side may then have to begin focusing on reaching the Europa League knockout stage instead.
