Winner in the first leg (1-0), Bayern Munich is about to receive PSG for the 8th round of the Champions League. For a simple formality?
Will Kylian Mbappé and his partners manage to topple Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on March 8 to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League? Former Senegalese international and now Canal consultant, Habib Beye is frank on the subject: Paris Saint-Germain has no chance of beating the German club on its facilities given the current form of Christophe Galtier’s team.
“I would dream of coaching in my life one of the two teams at least one day, it is the dream of a lifetime, surely. But what is certain is that if it is this PSG, they have no chance. Clearly. Even Mbappé, at this level, they have no chance. Against Bayern, impossible. That is to say that we will have to change almost everything, to have another philosophy, but this PSG that I have seen and that I have seen for a few weeks has no chance, in my opinion, to qualify in Munich. Now I really hope so, but what I have seen is not enough. Clearly,” explained the former defender of Olympique Marseille on the encrypted channel. A point of view that is not shared by Kylian Mbappé.
PSG: Kylian Mbappé firmly believes against Bayern
Having had two goals disallowed for offside positions, Kylian Mbappé is not afraid of Bayern Munich, even on their home turf at the Allianz Arena. For the 24-year-old French striker, the Bundesliga leader is not an impassable wall. The Paris Saint-Germain group will just have to go there with the determination and the desire to do it, all together.
“We have a disadvantage, but we saw that we are able to put them in difficulty (…) We saw that when we have our team and we are able to play forward and play offensive soccer, they are not comfortable. Everybody has to be healthy, sleep well, eat well. We can do something there. If we are more offensive, they are not comfortable. Let’s move on quickly and start again,” reacted the 2018 World Champion after the game.
So it promises for March 8.
