Many have already considered Bayern Munich as this seasons Champions League winners. But, PSG cannot be neglected. Paris Saint Germain had a rather messy win against Atalanta. But, the team showed character and resilience at a difficult time.
Champions League cannot be won simply by tactics. If it were pure tactics, Pep Guardiola would have won every season! PSG offer a unique squad to the Champions League. A squad mixed with exciting youngsters like Kyllian Mbappe. The Parisians also boast experienced players namely Thiago Silva and Di Maria. And I still have not mentioned the extraordinarily skillful, Neymar Jr.
Against Atalanta, we saw a very different PSG side. This team had a real purpose and determination to lift the Champions League. They simply refused to be knocked out at the quarter finals yet again! 2 goals in the 90th and 93rd minute gave PSG the crucial win.
Surely, Bayern MUnich is a great side. Undeniably, the favourites. You cannot blow away Barcelona 8-2 in the Champions league unless you are Bayern Munich. But, if there is a team who can stop this German massacre, it is none other than Paris Saint Germain.
