‘We Have to Win to Reverse the Trend’ — Icardi Previews PSG’s Champions League Fixture Against RB Leipzig

Paris Saint-Germain is now set for arguably the biggest match of its campaign, as it will face RB Leipzig in their return UEFA Champions League group stage fixture. PSG is just weeks removed from the 2-1 away loss to Leipzig. A loss for PSG in this upcoming contest will put the club in extreme danger of missing out on the knockout stage.

For Mauro Icardi, he knows the importance of this upcoming fixture for the club. A victory will put PSG in the driver’s seat for a spot in the knockout stage, so this contest is essentially a must-win one for the club. Icardi spoke further about the contest to Telefoot (via RMC Sport).

“Of course, we have to win to reverse the trend and the negative results we had in the Champions League,” Icardi said. “If we are focused and show our best face, we’ll definitely be on the next round.”

Icardi is already looking ahead to what the team could accomplish in the Champions League this season. PSG came extremely close last season to winning the competition, and the forward has his sights set on another deep run in the tournament.

“What everyone is looking for at the club is to create a team to win our first Champions League,” Icardi said. “We were close to winning it last season.”

A win against Leipzig for PSG can help the club take a significant step towards this goal.
