Champions League: mandatory comeback for PSG after its defeat in the quarter-final first leg against Barça

The history of football is a joke. Destiny continues to make the paths of Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona cross. After the defeat of the capital club in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League (2-3), Wednesday April 10, we will be treated to a 12th confrontation in just 11 years between the two clubs. A return match in Barcelona, ​​at Montjuic, which PSG will approach in an unfavorable position, that of the hunter, seven years after having been on the good side before suffering the famous “comeback”.

Next Tuesday, the capital club will not have four goals to come up with, but just one, to stay alive. On the other hand, he will have to flee to hostile terrain, at Montjuic, where Barça will be waiting for him, knowing full well that everything can turn around very quickly. “I’m happy and proud of my team. It’s true that we won an important away match, but we’re not at the end of the road. We still have a lot to do”took care to remind Catalan coach Xavi in ​​a post-match press conference.

Opposite, Luis Enrique admitted that his team had suffered “a painful defeat”, but he did not deviate from his line. Since the start of the season, his speech has been determined not to leave room for this irrational pressure which had led PSG to memorable defeats on the European scene. “We had no problems managing emotions [dans ce match aller]. I’m happy with a lot of things I’ve seen. We have to think that the trip to Barcelona is a final and that we have to win it. I have no doubt that we can achieve this goal.”he developed.

Obviously, the Spanish technician did not want to reveal what he planned to improve for his team to get their ticket to the semi-finals. “It will come down to small details”, vaguely replied the one who was on the Barça bench during the comeback in 2017. No more talkative than usual, Luis Enrique did not speak out on the reasons to believe in it for his PSG. He only stressed that his players have not experienced the slightest defeat away in Ligue 1 this season, omitting to say that they have only won one match in four trips to C1 (at Real Sociedad in the previous round).
