Paris Saint-Germain finished in second place as it wrapped up its UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 points. The capital club defeated Club Brugge 4-1 courtesy of two braces by Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.
Georginio Wijnaldum played all 90 minutes for the capital club, and after the match, the midfielder spoke to PSG TV, where he discussed the squad’s performance.
“I think we started off really well, being aggressive, playing fast and hard, and you can see that with our quality when we play together, we can be really dangerous, and that’s what we have made,” Wijnaldum said.
“I think we had five chances in the first ten minutes, so we started really well, and then we scored two goals which makes it easier. We started really well. But we also had moments of less well, where we lost a lot of easy balls, especially in the second half.”
Despite the Ligue 1 side already qualified, the squad put emphasis on this match as they want to break out of their recent funk.
“It makes things more difficult; moreover, they scored, and we had to change something. That’s why I think we still have things to improve,” Wijnaldum said.
“I think at the moment all important matches for us because we have to keep improving as a team and keep playing better, so it was a very good test for us. Maybe we were already qualified, but it was still a good chance for the team to improve, and I think we did it today. So it was a very important game in that regard.”
