PSG withstood a Bayern Munich onslaught and defeated the Germans 2-3 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.
One of the maiin men responsible for the victory was Kylian Mbappe, who scored two of PSG’s three goals. The ‘7’ analysed the match afterwards and highlighted the team’s ability to stay strong under immense pressure on the pitch.
“We’ve had a great game. We’ve suffered as a team, but we’ve been solid and we’ve put in a great performance as a team. Now we’re going to Paris happy, but thinking about Saturday’s game against Strasbourg. We’ll play Saturday’s match with the same determination,” he told ‘RMC Sport’.
Mbappe also spoke about Mauricio Pochettino’s plan and he revealed that he likes to shine and be important for PSG on the big nights like this Tuesday.
“Our plan was to open Bayern up with Neymar and me and cut off Kimmich’s line of passing. As I said in Barcelona, I like these types of matches. I’m not here to hide, I like to be decisive in this type of matches,” Mbappe said. He has scored eight goals in the Champions League so far.
