Paris Saint-Germain are steadily moving towards regaining the French Football League title, and towards reaching the Champions League play-offs, but its Argentine coach, Marucio Pochettino, is still looking for the best way to extract the best from the team’s stars, led by the Brazilian trio Neymar, Argentine Lionel Messi and Frenchman Kylian Mbappe.
Saint-Germain have suffered a bit locally by winning at home lately as it had to reverse its failure three times in the last 4 matches and it also settled its matches against Lyon, Metz, Angers and Lille by scoring a goal in the 87th minute or after, and also reversed his failure twice in his last two confrontations with German Leipzig to win at home and draw outside the rules.
In the first confrontation against Leipzig, the French capital team was trailing 1-2 at the Parc des Princes, before Messi helped turn the result in favor of his team 3-2.
In the return match on Wednesday, which Messi missed due to an injury, he was trailing 0-1, then his Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma saved a penalty kick to keep him inside the match before taking two goals for Dutch midfielder Georgino Wijnaldum, but he lost. victory, and was happy with the draw to lose the advantage in this group, It is a point after the leaders, Manchester City, and will visit it later.
Despite the galaxy of stars that the Parisian team includes, he has so far not presented the least interesting performances, and his defense seemed fragile, and therefore the pressure began to increase on his Argentine coach.
But the French club’s sporting director, Brazilian Leonardo, stepped in to defend the team and the coach amid a flurry of criticism of the team recently.
“We will see where we are at the end of the season. We will win the Champions League, we have the weapons for that and I am convinced of that.”
