The stars were out last Tuesday at the Parc des Princes, but it was the biggest star that stepped up and brought Paris Saint-Germain supporters around the world to their feet in celebration.
On the latest PSG Talking podcast, Tyrone Taylor hosts and he’s joined by fellow contributors Jon Olangi, James Carter, Eduardo Razo, and Guillaume Delaporte to break down every aspect of PSG’s 1-0 win over Real Madrid in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
To start, the panel shares their initial reaction to PSG’s dominating performance and well-deserved victory over Real Madrid. The conversation continues and the team does a deep-dive on Mauricio Pochettino’s tactics and Kylian Mbappé’s special 90 minutes of football that was capped off with a game-winning goal.
Next, Ty asks the group to comment on the removal of the away goal in the Champions League this season and whether that was the reason for Real Madrid’s negative tactics or if it was PSG’s talent that was too overwhelming?
Heading into the second leg of the tie, Real Madrid will be without Casimiro and Ferland Mendy due to yellow-card accumulation. Down a goal and outplayed at every level in the first leg, can Los Blancos turn things around with two of their starters out?
The show concludes with a discussion about what PSG must do next. What is the strategy with Sergio Ramos who is close to returning to the squad following an injury? Can Lionel Messi turn in a much better performance? Should PSG change tactics heading into the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium? This may be Mbappé’s last season in a PSG shirt and with so much at stake, the team seems prepared to finally deliver the trophy fans covet the most and cement their legacies.
