PSG have only "a small chance" at progression

Barca vs PSG: Progression to the semis is unlikely, admits Blanc

April 21, 2015 By Ali M.
According to the PSG boss, the Ligue 1 champions will travel to Camp Nou on Tuesday with only “a small chance” of overturning the 3-1 deficit.

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain will be welcoming star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Italian midfielder Marco Verratti to their squad ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Barcelona.

Despite this, though, manager Laurent Blanc admits his side has only “a small chance” of overturning the 3-1 deficit inflicted upon them in the first-leg clash, last Wednesday.

Les Parisiens find themselves in this predicament after an abysmal display by their defense, lead by David Luiz, saw Neymar and Luis Suarez hand the Blaugrana a priceless away win.

Nevertheless, Blanc promises to give it all they got when they travel to clash with the Catalan giants, saying:

"We have to think that we have to score and I am sure that we will but we have only a small chance to go through.

"We cannot afford to concede goals and that here is practically impossible. We have nothing to lose but will do our best. 

"All the teams that play here in Europe concede at least one. Barcelona have attacking players with incredible talent.

"We have to show that we want to win, show that we are capable of doing it and give a better account of ourselves than in the first match."

The French boss was excited to see their Swedish talisman return in time for the quarter-final tie, claiming that these kinds of games bring the best out of the 33-year-old.

"Ibra likes these kinds of games when there is nothing to lose.

"He will help us and I am looking forward to seeing him play. He is very important for us and is training hard each day.  He is in good form." 

Real Madrid's Zinedine Zidane, however, backs PSG to make the semis, saying the French giants got what it takes to overturn the 3-1 score line. Watch!
