Does the star ensemble lack motivation?
After the bitter 1:2 on Friday at the bottom of the standings at Dijon, they went to Paris to investigate the causes.
According to “L’Equipe” one of the reasons for the poor performance of the Paris stars could lie with coach Thomas Tuchel (46). To be more precise, his criticism after the 4-0 win against Olympique Marseille last week.
The theory of the French sports newspaper: The players should be angry because Tuchel complained after the Marseille match that PSG – which had already led to the break with 4:0 – had taken its foot off the accelerator after the change. A criticism that the players could not understand. Accordingly, the front runner was unmotivated to start the game at Dijon.
The visitors had put down a very weak first half. After the change, PSG turned up the heat and had numerous top-class chances, but also a lot of bad luck in the end. In the end, they suffered a 2-1 defeat.
Already on Wednesday (9 pm ), the star ensemble has the chance to make amends. If they beat Bruges, Paris St Germain would qualify early for the round of sixteen in the Champions League.
