PSG managed their efforts by defeating Lille (2-0) this Friday night in Ligue 1 before going to challenge Madrid in Madrid on Tuesday night for a shock of the Champions League.

A better PSG manager of his efforts and resources this season in view of the Champions League? This is apparent from post-match statements of Parisians Friday night, who beat Lille 2-0 without making huge efforts. For midfielder Idrissa Gueye, there was especially two half-time radically distinct for a PSG who rushed to ensure victory before managing for the rest of the meeting. "There were two completely different half-times, yes, conceded the Senegalese midfielder at the microphone of Canal +. In first, we knew how to set the pace and score both goals. After that, we raised our feet a bit. But it's the recovery and we see that it's always complicated this kind of matches. The bottom line was to take the three points and we did it. Has the economy before Madrid? No, it's the game that asked, against a team from Lille who plays very well in football. They caused us problems to keep the ball. (…) Places are expensive in the team? That's it, the big clubs. There is competition everywhere. But the moment the competition is healthy, it's essential. Afterwards, it's up to the coach to make the choices. "

Tuchel: "We relaxed too much"

While all the attackers had playing time and that the PSG is more than ever leader of the Ligue 1, the Parisians seem completely developed before going to Madrid to challenge Real with a Kylian Mbappe who seems totally recovered from his feverish state. Also polled by the encrypted channel, Thomas Tuchel also admitted that his team had sought to manage in the second act : "If we have been in management? Yes, a little, blew the German technician. We had a lot of chances in the second half, but we did not control. We lost too many easy balloons. (…) After a truce, it's very complicated. That's why I'm satisfied. We won deservedly, and without goal cashed. We must continue, improving. At half-time, everyone said we had to keep going at the same pace, but we relaxed too much. It must be recognized, however, that it is difficult, and when you lose too many easy balloons, you are not confident. "
