That 3-0 loss at Parc des Princes early in the group stage proved to be the last stroke that broke the camel’s back in Bayern Munich’s case, with the club directors deciding to part ways with Carlo Ancelotti.
Hosting the same opponent, PSG, at the end of the group stage, was an awesome opportunity for the Bavarians to… make a statement, that they are ‘back’. They did, by winning 3-1, having their French players showing the way.
Coco Tolisso has shown in recent weeks that he is dangerous in front of goal. Furthermore he is a very good team player, with a great engine and strong in the tackle
Jupp Heynckes told reporters after the match in Munich, talking about the scorer of two of his team’s three goals.
We played very cleverly and put into action our game plan. Tactically we were very good and allowed PSG very few counter-attacks. That was the key to our win. We are getting better and better; the team now believes in itself and can now compensate for injuries
the Bayern coach said, before going back to the contribution of his French players.
I am pleased with the performance of the whole team but especially so with the French players. Franck Ribery is fit again and performed very well considering he’s been out for so long with injury. Kingsley [Coman] is improving all the time, keeping his composure when he breaks free with better passing and crossing. That is all a product of our intensive work on the training pitch
the German coach said, very satisfied with what he had just seen from his team.
