Tuchel: “It’s difficult to control a game against a team like that.”
In the Champions League, PSG conceded a 2-1 defeat against RB Leipzig, although they had already taken the lead after six minutes and received a penalty in the 16th minute.
In the French press, Thomas Tuchel was not dissatisfied with his team’s game – probably due to his injury concerns, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar were absent. And also praised Leipzig very much for the performance. “There are teams like Ajax, Liverpool and Leipzig that play very physically and you just have to accept that. It’s difficult to control a game against a team like that,” he said after the game.
Tuchel got support from PSG captain Marquinhos. “Of course we know how football works. He is the coach who had the best season in history. And in the next season we are already talking about his future. Football knows no patience. We have confidence in the coach. When things don’t go, it’s not just the coach’s fault. We, the players, can do a lot better. ”
The worries are shifting from the offensive to the defense. But Tuchel remains optimistic: “We still have every chance to win the direct duel against Leipzig.” For that, PSG is enough because of the away goal a 1-0.
