Paris Saint-Germain headed into the first leg against FC Bayern Munich without their two best midfielders and in poor form after the loss to Lille OSC this past weekend.
However, the capital club came away with a positive result in a 3-2 victory on the road against the German giants. In an interview with RMC Sport, manager Mauricio Pochettino discussed the match and his game plan heading into the fixture.
Canal Supporters relayed the comments made by the Argentine tactician.
“I am happy with the result, with the attitude of the team which found itself in difficult situations against the best team in Europe. We must congratulate the players for their sense of sacrifice. We are trying to repeat this kind of performance,” Pochettino said.
“When you win, it’s always easier to explain your decisions. Everyone thinks you made the right choices. But the credit goes to the players; they are the main players, it is their quality that must be highlighted. There were a lot of sacrifices tonight. But we still have one game, 90 minutes to play, the first leg is favorable, but the return will be difficult as we know.”
