The crisis sirens are sounding at Paris Saint-Germain after the capital club fell 2-1 to Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday at the Stade Vélodrome.
PSG’s loss resulted in the French giants being eliminated in the Coupe de France Round of 16. As a result, the defeat has many worried about the French giants heading into their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash against Bayern Munich.
The first leg is on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes and PSG defender Sergio Ramos is attempting to calm the masses by providing veteran leadership heading into the contest.
“We don’t always win, but we always choose what to learn from defeats,” Ramos said on Instagram (h/t Paris Fans). “Our choice is to learn, to work, to evolve, to achieve excellence. We choose to be united and continue to pursue our goals, everyone’s goals. We choose.”
PSG needs to come out of the first leg with a victory, but it will be a challenging task for manager Christophe Galtier. The French tactician isn’t going to have Kylian Mbappe for the match as the 24-year-old is out for three weeks with a left thigh injury.
Additionally, Lionel Messi and Achraf Hakimi are reportedly dealing with injuries too. However, Ramos understands the role of a leader is to galvanize and he’s doing his best to ensure the squad is in the right mindset.
