Asked if PSG have been the higher staff on the night time, he continued: ‘Yeah, I think that’s true. From the beginning they’d extra depth, perhaps extra aggressivity than us and in video games like this, within the Champions League, it’s exhausting to come back over that.
‘I think it was hard to defend them and as well to attack them. I don’t suppose we created one likelihood on course. It’s a tough night time however we now have to analyse when everyone seems to be relaxed and take into consideration what we may do higher.’.
Courtois was criticised for his function in PSG’s opening objective, with Di Maria’s effort sneaking previous him on the close to put up, however the keeper felt it was nicely hit and criticised the shortage of strain on the Argentine earlier than his second objective.
