The reunion between PSG and Bayern Munich is, for the club of the capital, the opportunity to settle its accounts with the Bavarian team. This is what Nasser Al-Khelaïfi thinks, in his reaction to this match which is none other than the final of the Champions League 2020.
PSG: Al-Khelaïfi “confident and eager” to face Bayern
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi told the PSG website his reaction to the draw for the Champions League 2021 quarterfinals. The first leg of the double-header with Bayern Munich is scheduled for April 7 at the Allianz Arena and the second leg on April 13 at the Park of the Princes in Paris. Unlike the coaches who often use the language of wood, the president of Paris Saint-Germain was very direct. He said he was confident for his team, against an opponent who had deprived him of his first trophy in the most prestigious European club competition. “Both clubs know each other very well and there is a great mutual respect between them. Last season we came very close to our goal in the Champions League final and we are looking forward to a new exciting confrontation with Bayern. I have a lot of confidence in our team. They will be determined to give their best in what will be one of the biggest games of the Champions League,” said the PSG boss.
Paris SG, objective of the Champions League trophy
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has been chasing the C1 cup since the 2011-2012 season. Having bought the Parisian club in 2011, QSI (Qatar Sports Investments) has set a long-term goal: the Champions League trophy. After failing to reach the final last season, will this year be the right one for PSG? Let’s wait and see. Let’s remember that only OM, among the Ligue 1 clubs, has written its name on the list of winners of the cup with the big ears. It was in May 1993 at the expense of AC Milan, 28 years ago.
