Pochettino refuses to use 'weird circumstances' as excuse for PSG's inconsistency
PSG fell to a third straight home Ligue 1 defeat in their 1-0 loss to Lille but Mauricio Pochettino was in no mood for excuses.Jonathan David scored the only goal as Lille defeated PSG to go three points clear at the top of Ligue 1 in a match that saw Neymar sent off in the closing stages on his first top-flight start since January 31.
The PSG would necessarily suffer in its quarterfinish back of Champions League against Bayern, on Tuesday night at the Princes Park. This was the case. The men of Mauricio Pochettino, a week after their 3-2 victory in Bavaria, have lost "only" 1-0 and rang, as last summer, the semi-finals of the competition. They will face Manchester City or Dortmund (27 or 28 April and 4 or 5 May). The misfortune of Neymar outrageously dominated to the go, the Parisians have this time less undergone in the first period and have obtained huge occasions. This is the case to say: Neymar hit the pole twice (34th and 39th) as well as the transversal of Manuel Neuer (37th)! In the wake, the title holders opened the score. Keylor Navas pushed an attempt by David Alaba but Eric Choupo-Moting dominated Presnel Kimpembe in the air to ship the ball to the bottom of the nets (40th). As expected, the Bayern dominated the second period, but Choupo no longer had any opportunity in particular in particular to a Grand Danilo Pereira, holder in hinge in the absence of Marquinhos. Thomas Müller and Leroy Sané or David Alava have also missed their attempts in the Parisian surface and Kingsley Coman has not saved his own as at the final in Lisbon. In counterattack, the Parisians did not know how to shelter, like a Kylian mbled very often offside, and because of a huge Lucas Hernandez. But the qualification is in pocket!
is done! Validated qualification facing the????
