In a week where they fell 2-1 to RB Leipzig on matchday three of the UEFA Champions League group stage, and questions surrounding the future of manager Thomas Tuchel, Paris Saint-Germain picked up a much-needed 3-0 victory over Stade Rennais FC.
After coming into the match to replace Idrissa Gueye after the Senegal international, capital club midfielder Rafinha played 77 minutes. He had 64 touches and one key pass and won six of ten for his ground duels.
The 27-year-old spoke with PSG TV postmatch to discuss the win.
“We knew it was a very strong team, a team that plays in the Champions League,” Rafinha said. “We expected a very difficult game against a physically very strong team, but we managed to take the 3 points. It’s important to react after the Champions League. Three days later, we were able to play this match, giving a good image, with intensity.”
