If the PSG found colors, Sunday, by going to impose itself in a beautiful way on the lawn of Olympique de Marseille, confidence is also in order in the Bavarian ranks.
It will have been enough of a match so that the confidence returns. After three consecutive defeats and a miraculous victory the previous weekend in Lille, PSG indeed signed a most convincing victory on the lawn of the Vélodrome. Eighteen days earlier, Christophe Galtier’s men had however taken the tide there, with the key to elimination in the knockout stages of the Coupe de France (2-1). But the return of Kylian Mbappé has changed the game and allows all hopes for the return match against Bayern Munich. And this despite the defeat conceded in the first leg (0-1) at the Parc des Princes.
Nevertheless, PSG will face an equally reassured Bayern Munich. A week after their defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach (3-2), the German champions have indeed taught Union Berlin a lesson in the clash at the top of the Bundesliga (3-0). Something to trust. A week before the return match against the Parisians, Herbert Hainer, the CEO of the Bavarian club, did not hesitate to display his certainties. “The team has already shown on the first leg that it is there when needed. They will show it again. I am absolutely confident for this return match against Paris.he thus confided in remarks relayed by Picture.
It’ll be fun
And if the Munich leader is so sure of himself, it is also because of the wealth of the Bavarian workforce. “When you see the players coming off the bench, other clubs would bite their fingers. That’s also why I’m confident.”he added as Sadio Mané, Leroy Sané, Serge Gnabry, Joao Cancelo and Mathys Tel came into play on Sunday against Union Berlin.
Sporting director of the Munich giant, Hasan Salihamidzic also appreciated the performance of his troops on Sunday. “That’s exactly how we have to play. That dominance, that presence, that dueling force, that mentality, that’s exactly what we want. We have some very interesting and challenging tasks in the coming weeks. If we do it like today, it will be fun to watch”he commented.
