Nobody at Paris Saint-Germain hides that the big goal of the season is the unprecedented title of the UEFA Champions League. But before traveling to Lisbon for the quarterfinals against Atalanta, on August 12th, the Parisian team has two domestic decisions, the French Cup, on the 24th, against Saint-Étienne, and the French League, on the 31st, against Lyon.
After winning 9-0 this Sunday against Le Havre, in a friendly that marked the return to the fields of PSG after four months, coach Thomas Tuchel said that he will only focus on the game against Atalanta after the two finals. A warm-up in two chapters for the club’s most important moment this year.
“The challenge is to arrive in Lisbon with two titles. We are going to prepare for the game against Saint-Étienne, that’s just what is on my mind now, and then it will be Lyon. Then we will have 12 days to prepare for Atalanta. It is absolutely necessary to follow step by step”, said the German coach.
