Galtier Speaks Out on the Reasons Behind PSG’s Recent Sluggish Attacking Performances

Paris Saint-Germain has maintained its undefeated status in all competitions this season, although it has struggled to orchestrate much in the attack as of late. PSG has scored a mere three total goals in its last four fixtures in all competitions, and only one of them came via an open-play goal inside the box.

During a pre-match press conference ahead of PSG’s Ligue 1 away fixture against AC Ajaccio, manager Christophe Galtier was asked whether his side has become more predictable in the attack as of late, to which the French coach took some time to analyze the team’s recent performances.

“It’s possible,” Galtier said. “I think we were not very predictable against OM. In all honesty, even if OM had a good game, we deserved to score a lot more goals. We had a lot of situations, a little bit of bad luck on Leo’s set-piece, the goalkeeper was called upon and made a lot of decisive saves.

“But in Lyon, we had a lot of situations and the Lyon goalkeeper was credited with a great performance too. Of course, it would be more comfortable to have more consistent gaps to have more important rotations during the games.”

PSG was able to put together a promising attacking showing against Olympique de Marseille on Ligue 1 matchday 11, as it tallied 23 total shots, with eight of them being on target. However, the reigning Ligue 1 champions came away from the contest with only one goal to show for it.

PSG will look to get back on the right track from an attacking standpoint in its upcoming league matchup against AC Ajaccio.
