Parisian coach Christophe Galtier wants to rely on the last 25 minutes offered by his team, against Bayern Munich (0-1) this Tuesday, February 14, in the wake of a stirring and almost decisive Kylian Mbappé.
Christophe Galtier (PSG coach): “From the moment we don’t have depth in our game, Bayern have made enormous progress on us. We had trouble getting the ball out, holding it very high. Proof that we were accumulated. By playing that way, without the verticality that we need in these matches, we had a very difficult first period.

There was another scenario, planned because I knew we were going to be able to use Kylian. Unfortunately, we take this but just when the changes were going to take place and the team was going to reorganize into another offensive animation. It’s unfortunate, but there were 25 minutes where the team was both in reaction and in an animation that corresponds to it, with much more density in midfield and verticality. Unfortunately, we couldn’t use Achraf (Hakimi). Marqui (Marquinhos) lasted the whole game even though he was also physically affected. It went through the left side and it was not much. On hustled them for 25 minutes. Obviously there is a disappointment, but we all knew that tonight there would be no qualified and no eliminated. We will have to see in 3 weeks in what state our squad will be in order to play a complete match at the level of the last half hour that we played this evening. »
