Nagelsmann was clearly unhappy with the manner in which the home side earned their penalty on Tuesday, saying the decision was not acceptable.

"I don't think Paris had a real chance in the game and the penalty was a joke," Nagelsmann fumed to Sky Germany.

"That decision at Champions League level – that's really sad. That was a dive, there was zero contact. VAR was probably watching another game.

"Sometimes nuances make the difference and in the end it would have been deserved if we had rewarded ourselves. Now we are holding worse cards in the group, we have to win our two games and hope that Paris doesn't succeed."

"You haven't seen a very good PSG? Sorry, sorry," Tuchel said. "I retain the heart, the solidarity. We are in a difficult situation but we can always count on our solidarity. We expect more with PSG. We needed a win and we have a win. It was a challenge to win and we won."
