Paris Saint-Germain went on the road to the Matmut Atlantique for a matchup against FC Girondins de Bordeaux before the international break. Neymar Jr. scored the first two goals for the capital club, and Kylian Mbappé would make give Les Parisiens a 3-0 lead.
It seemed as though the French giants would come away with a convincing win, but Bordeaux didn’t go away quietly as they scored two goals but fell short. PSG left southwestern France with all three points.
After the match, Ander Herrera spoke to Canal Plus, where he talked about what went wrong in the last 20 minutes of the game.
“Yes, it’s difficult to explain because we controlled the game well for 70 minutes. Afterward, it’s true that they made changes and lined up a lot of attackers on the pitch, but that’s no reason to suffer as we did. I think we have a lot of things to improve, including that. We’re in a period where we can’t control the games for 90 minutes, and that’s something we have to do,” Herrera said.
“All the teams have quality, have quick offensives, and if you don’t have the ball and control for 90 minutes, you’re going to suffer. It’s true that we did some good things today. We expected the counter-attack because we have a lot of speed, but we also controlled the game by having the ball. We got a lot of balloons in the middle.”
