Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a memorable run to the 2020 UEFA Champions League Final. From its dramatic quarterfinal win over Atalanta to its convincing victory against RB Leipzig in the semifinals, it was quite a landmark run of performances.
In speaking to PSG TV, midfielder Leandro Paredes was asked about his most beautiful emotion at the club so far, which he picked the team’s push to the Champions League final two years ago.
“In Paris when we went to the Champions League final,” Paredes said. “I think that year was overall very good for us overall. We won four trophies on the domestic scene and we reached the final of the Champions League. For the club and for us, it was very important.”
The Argentine was also asked about his greatest joy in the PSG locker room, which he reminisced on the aftermath of the thrilling Champions League round of 16 tie win against Borussia Dortmund.
“The victory after the game against Dortmund that we won here, without our fans in the stadium, and then celebrating with them outside,” Paredes said. “That was really good.”
