Winner in Nantes, Saturday night in Ligue 1 (0-3) thanks to the achievements of Ander Herrera, Kylian Mbappé and Pablo Sarabia, PSG returns to the Champions League on Wednesday evening against Leipzig (9 p.m.). For this match in Germany, the Ile-de-France club will face an opponent he defeated in the semi-final of the previous edition by winning easily (3-0).
In an interview with the club’s official website, Captain Marquinhos urged his partners to forget about this meeting because the next one, according to him, will necessarily be different. “Everything that happened in the last game against them, you can’t think about it. It’s a different context, a completely different game. You have to prepare for whoever arrives, use the same ingredients as in the last match, the same intensity, the same energy. We were able to unlock the match quickly against them last time, it helped us for the future. You have to keep things positive, erase what was wrong and analyze this team well, to see how it has evolved in its game, to be ready “, he said.
No matter the way, Marquinhos wants PSG to keep winning
If PSG is leading the way in Ligue 1 with a small lead over Lille, its runner-up (2 points), Marquinhos has delivered his report on the game developed by the players led by Thomas Tuchel since the start of the current season. He is aware that it is not perfect, and wants to continue to win to gain points and confidence.
“Maybe we’re not playing our best football right now. But we are winning, and that’s what matters most in football in the short term. And you have to keep winning. No matter who the opponent is, no matter how at the moment … It’s by winning that we will improve. We will continue to put the intensity that it takes, and the best collective performances will follow. We try not to listen too much to what people say outside the band, we have a job to do, and we know what we have to do to achieve it well “, judged the captain of PSG.
