Group H of the Champions League will bring together Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and RB Leipzig. However, the Germans seem to be particularly motivated at the idea of finding the champions of France …
On August 18, near Lisbon, it is an understatement to say that the RB Leipzig had not put up great resistance to Paris Saint Germain in the semi-finals of Final 8 of the Champions League. The Bundesliga members were swept away (3-0), putting up much less resistance to the Ile-de-France residents than theAtalanta Bergamo on the previous match.
Leipzig, a dispute with PSG
However, the partners of Dayot Upamecano were sent to Group H of the Champions League this Thursday, with the residents of the Parc des Princes precisely, and Manchester United as well as the Istanbulites of Basaksehir. On the other side of the Rhine, we seem to have already ticked the box of reunion with Kylian Mbappé and others. “Paris, we know them since the semi-final, we have a score to settle, the club’s sporting director Markus Krösche warned from the outset via AFP. We have a very difficult group, but our goal is still to advance to the knockout stages. We showed last season that we can do it. I think what we showed in the last Champions League attracted attention, with a very young team showing they can compete internationally “.
PSG have already forgotten Manchester United
Obviously, the Red and Blue will therefore be expected at the turn, they who will also find a formation of Manchester United who had played a nasty trick on them, in the round of 16 of the competition two years ago. However, Parisians do not seem at all obsessed with this reunion. “Against Manchester United, some will think of getting their revenge, others will forget … It’s another game, totally different from last time, said the captain Marquinhos on RMC. Everyone has their own way of preparing “.
