PSG lost to Bayern Munich in France and complicated their qualification in the Champions League
Coman scored the goal in the Parque de los Príncipes for the German team. The rematch of the round of 16 will be played in Germany on March 8
Although the difference is only one goal, what alarms the Parisians is the lack of collective play despite having a rich squad full of figures. They did not reach the good moments of Kylian Mbappe, who entered the second stage and even scored a goal that the VAR later annulled for offside. The 24-year-old striker stood up after the defeat and left a sentence that opened the debate in France.
“Now we need all our players to be in good health and we will go there (through Germany) to qualify. We all need to eat well, sleep well, and prepare.”launched the former Monaco before the press and speculation began to be woven about what he meant between the lines.

The concrete thing is that Paris Saint Germain, with Lionel Messi at the helm, must emerge victorious from the Allianz Arena to avoid another elimination in the Champions League. It will need to be united and you will need all the stars to be aligned.
