Speaking to RMC Sport last night following PSG’s 2-2 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, Italian central midfielder Marco Verratti happily admitted the difficulties that this match threw up for his side, who have now assured qualification for the Round of 16 in top spot of their group.
“This is a place where few teams win. We suffered through it. In the first half, we didn’t play our game. We were sitting too far back. Our second half was more courageous. We gave away a fair amount of chances but we played our game as we know how. We are happy, this is our fifth game, we have four victories and one draw. We can certainly improve, but we are on the right track. Navas made some very good saves. It is not like we are uncovering a new talent in Paris. He won three consecutive Champions’ Leagues. For that to happen, a team needs a great goalkeeper and that’s what Keylor is. Tonight, he was extraordinary.”
