Beaten 2-0 at the Parc des Princes, the Marsupiaux recognized the superiority of PSG.
Arriving in Paris with the hope of making a big impact, Borussia Dortmund did not resist. Despite a good start to the match, Edin Terzic’s men gradually lost their footing and logically lost 2-0 on the pitch at the Parc des Princes.
The Marsupiaux coach was full of praise for the French champions after the match. “They had a great match, it was a very united PSG. We perhaps respected them too much in the first half, because you need courage against a team like that. We didn’t have enough confidence, we lost a lot of energy. Afterwards, we got off to a bad start in the second half. Yes, we had 2 or 3 opportunities to score, but we didn’t deserve to win, thus entrusted the technician to the microphone of RMC Sport. PSG is a great team with great players. They are favorites in this group. We need to learn from this match. Certainly, we didn’t give that many chances, but it’s the Champions League.”
And Niclas Füllkrug, who came on in the second half, had the same analysis. “We were unlucky, but we also deserved our defeat. Paris played as we expected, but we didn’t manage to do what we wanted. I was looking forward to my debut in this competition, but I’m not here to just enjoy it, I want to win. It’s a question of small details, how we press, when we press, and we left too many spaces.”he explained in the mixed zone.
