Sport PSG fined for late start to second half v Atalanta
PSG: which team against Atalanta? The latest trend
Paris Saint-Germain face Atalanta this Wednesday (9 p.m.) for its entry into the Final 8 of the Champions League. What formula will Thomas Tuchel choose? It's the big day. After a studious preparation course in the south of the country, the Parisians joined the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, to get to the heart of the matter. For more than a month, Atalanta has been in everyone's mind. This offensive team will offer consistent opposition to the French champions this Wednesday evening (9 p.m.).
LISBON (Reuters) - Paris St Germain have been fined 30,000 euros (27,131.07 pounds) by UEFA for causing the second half of their Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta to kick off late on Wednesday.
In a statement UEFA said coach Thomas Tuchel had also been warned after being held responsible for the delay.
French champions PSG trailed 1-0 at halftime in Lisbon and were heading for the exit until an incredible late rally saw them overcome the Italian side with goals by Marquinhos and Eric Choupo-Moting, the second coming in stoppage time.
PSG, who have reached their first semi-final in the competition since 1995, will face RB Leipzig on Tuesday.
