It could have gone much better for Paris Saint-Germain in Munich, they did have chances to equalize before going 3-1 down, but it could have gone worse as well, losing the top spot in their Champions League group.
Our first goal was to play well and win the match, our second was to keep the lead. So, I’m 50 per cent happy and 50 per cent disappointed
Unai Emery told reporters soon after the final whistle, having seen his PSG side lose 3-1 to Bayern Munich.
At 2-1, we were closer to 2-2 than 3-1. If we realise our opportunities, it’s another game. We had opportunities to reverse the result, but we did not achieve it
the Spaniard said, before explaining why his team kind of… slowed down in their effort to score goals, after going 3-1 down.
At 3-1 for Bayern, when the players saw that they could not change the result, the team then sought to calm the game, to have control, and to keep a solid structure to contain Bayern and ensure the first place of the group
the PSG head coach said, a rather… cynical, but definitely practical approach, as the Paris giants did finish at the top of their group, which could prove handy on Monday, when the draw of the last 16 takes place.
