MOSCOW, 25 Nov – France’s Paris Saint-Germain was unlucky in the Champions League match with English Manchester City, but the club achieved its goal and reached the playoffs of the tournament, said Parisian head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
“PSG” on Wednesday in the fifth round of the Champions League lost at a visit to “City” with a score of 1: 2. “Manchester” entered the playoffs of the tournament from the first place in the group, “PSG” – from the second.
“We achieved our goal by going to the next stage. Of course we wanted to be the first, but today we did not manage to win. Manchester City are a great team. The first half was tough, but in the second half we found a way to dominate and create chances. I think we were not lucky, but we must pay tribute to “Manchester City”, – quotes the words of Pochettino Bein Sports.
“We fought a lot,” Josep Guardiola said after the game. – “We played a good match and reached the Champions League 1/8 finals for several times in a row. Congratulations to the players. We lost 0: 1 and had to keep fighting. We knew that a draw would be fine, but in the end we won. PSG too good in front, so they had to defend with the whole team. They are always dangerous when they have the ball in the last third of the field. After their goal we were knocked out within five or ten minutes. Thanks to our fans for coming and supporting us. It was wonderful evening”.
