"It's us against the rest of the world". This is the mentality of the Parisian group, as Ander Herrera explained in recent days in the Spanish press. The former Mancunien took the opportunity to vilify the " haters or the press" who "create problems". "All of France are waiting for PSG to lose and hope that they make a mistake to attack them," added the Spain international. A state of mind that largely reflected on Friday evening, in the auditorium of the Stade de France, after the Parisian success in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue against OL (0-0 ap, 6-5 tab) . Press conference which will have been much more animated than the meeting itself… We first saw Ander Herrera make a point of honor to deviate from the questions to pass his message : "The most important, before the Champions League is to win national trophies. We've won four this season. ” All while singing the praises of OL and of French football overall, in order to give even more credit to the performance of PSG and to respond in advance to any grumpy people who would underestimate the scope of Parisian success.

Who rubs himself bites

It was then up to Thomas Tuchel to answer questions from the media . Questions which, among other things, revolved around the prospect of the C1 and the not really reassuring quality of play of "his" PSG on the occasion of the two finals, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue. Yet cheerful on his arrival at the stand, the German coach was carried away when a colleague submitted to him the fact that Paris only scored a goal between 210 minutes in the matches against ASSE and OL … “And what?” He repeated several times. “We're just lucky. No quality, only luck. Difficulties in the game? It's football! It's only football. Show me a team that scores four or five goals in every game! It is not possible ! You are always looking for the negative. There are 99 positive points, but we are looking for the 100th, we must find problems ... There is no problem. We won." And rather twice than once, indeed.

In the end, we can only rejoice at this feeling of media-public persecution. This is obviously the glue that unites this dressing room, this group, this club. A motivation like any other. But if it works ... It should be noted, however, that no one has questioned the Parisian prowess. And especially in cups, on a dry match. "It's not easy, we saw that last season," confirms Herrera, remembering that Paris did not win either of the two national cups last season. Nine-time Italian champions in the past nine years, Juventus, for example, have lost the Italian Cup final this season.

Paris and Lyon, same

fight But that does not prevent us from remembering that Paris Saint-Germain has the means, and therefore the players, far above the pack on the French stage. We also know that it’s not only the media and the public that are obsessed with the European Cup, it’s the whole club, with the players in mind. Not to mention Doha… So highlighting the results of Thomas Tuchel’s team doesn’t prevent questions about the quality of play when necessary. As can be the case today. The 3,500 spectators who were at the Stade de France, and the few million others in front of their posts, can attest to the poverty of the Parisian game. The poverty of the game itself, the two teams having competed in this area. “It was a closed match,” modestly recognize Rudi Garcia . "It's very easy to explain: it's OL in front (laughs)," said Herrera. And Tuchel added: "I am very proud of my team, they are reliable guys, who enjoy working and suffering together." Suffer, yes, but not too much!

Two extenuating circumstances for the two clubs after this dull final. First, the heat. Overwhelming throughout the meeting. And then the shutdown of Ligue 1, this four-month hiatus due to coronavirus and ... due to certain decisions of the authorities, or even above. Difficult to restart the machine in these conditions ... Was it appropriate to play these two finals after the stoppage of Ligue 1? “Frankly, I prefer not to answer that question,” Garcia eludes. There are people who are supposed to think and answer this question. ” And the Lyon coach added, in response to another question: "After four months of hiatus, playing 120 minutes is not easy ... We'll put it that way."

And now, the Champions League

Lyonnais and Parisiens will however have to put on the heat very quickly, and before the rest of the Ligue 1 clubs. OL face Juve next Friday, while PSG have an appointment with Atalanta on August 12. While he promises that this final against Paris represents "a good starting point", Rudi Garcia also acknowledges that Lyon will have to be "a little better offensively to score in Turin". Thomas Tuchel, he knows well that "Atalanta has a great advantage because they have the rhythm" of the competition. Understood, OL did not do enough offensively and PSG (logically) lack pace. Also annoyed by the questions about the players who did not shine on Friday, Idrissa Gueye or Mauro Icardi for example , the German coach also acknowledged their difficulties. "No big things," he said, however. Understand: "Nothing serious". But not nothing at all. In the end, everything was not so perfect and we may have the right to wonder about the quality of play of the two teams, and in particular that of PSG. But once again, if the Reds and Blues find the key to getting to the end in Lisbon, who will complain?
