PSG were without superstar Kylian Mbappe until he came on in the 57th minute, but even that wasn’t enough to get a result for Galtier’s men
It was planned for Mbappe to be introduced in the second half but right before him coming on PSG conceded a goal.
Galtier bemoans conceding right before Mbappe came on
The Ligue 1 champions put on a lackluster performance against Bayern Munich as the Germans defeated them in Paris 1-0. Even Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann admitted that he was surprised by how “passive” PSG were for the majority of the match.
Galtier wanted to introduce Kylian Mbappe in the second half and possibly push for a goal then. However, just before he came on, Bayern Munich managed to score a goal by former PSG player Coman. Cristophe Galtier lamented conceding in such an inopportune time.
The PSG coach told Canal Plus: “We managed to push them over 25-30 minutes. There is the offside goals, two or three situations.
“There is obviously a disappointment, but we know that there is not a qualified team or a team eliminated tonight.
“From the moment we didn’t have depth in our game, Bayern advanced and put pressure on us“
“We will have to see in three weeks the state of our team, if we will have recovered fitness and have players to play a full match at the level of our last half hour.”
Galtier conceded where Paris Saint-Germain went wrong and the way they lost control of the match to the Bavarians.
“From the moment we didn’t have depth in our game, Bayern advanced and put pressure on us and we had trouble getting the ball out, holding it very high,” Galtier added.
“We had a very difficult first half. There was another scenario planned because I knew that I was going to be able to use Kylian.
“Unfortunately, we conceded this goal just when the changes were going to take place with a new organisation.
“There were 25 minutes where the team reacted but in a system that corresponds more to our qualities.”
