In a match with many goal-scoring opportunities, the scoreline only unfolded with a narrow victory for the home team, 1-0. PSG couldn't find the equalizer despite creating around 5 clear chances in the second half.

However, the home team also didn't lag behind and could have scored more goals in the match, but the effectiveness of the encounter was only provided by Niclas Fullkrug's goal.

The Parisians trust in another comeback in the Champions League

After the match, the PSG players' statements didn't wait, and one of the first to speak out was captain Marquinhos to Canal +.

"We had many opportunities in the second half that we could not waste to reach the UCL final. We need to take advantage of those opportunities at home. "


Marquinhos declared, acknowledging the Parisians' lack of accuracy in this encounter but with the hope of going to Paris to settle the match.

"At the Parc, we fans know we can do better. We just have to be more decisive in front and also behind. We conceded a goal that we shouldn't have conceded."


Home advantage is crucial for the Parisians, and with an extra break due to no Ligue 1 fixture next weekend, it will be appropriate to have a great performance in front of goal to take a positive result at the Parc and advance to the Champions League final.

On April 7th, the return leg will be at the Parc des Princes, where all eyes will be on whether PSG can turn the result around and reach the Champions League final. For now, the Parisians only have to work and correct several errors seen in this match to arrive in better shape to face Borussia Dortmund."
