Christophe Galtier (PSG) before the match against Juventus: “Finishing first is an important objective”

“PSG has never won the Champions League, do you think it can be the right year?
There are a lot of expectations in France and in Europe, which is normal when you see how our workforce is made up. Unfortunately, PSG couldn’t win this magnificent trophy. It is very difficult to win. The matches are irrational with reversals of situation. PSG are very close to winning this trophy. We hope it will be this year. A few years ago, it was not much.

Beating Juventus, eliminating them, is it important because PSG had never won against Juventus before this year?
There is no desire to say that we have to beat Juventus because historically that has never been the case. We have the ambition to win, but we are focused on us.

You are already qualified, but not yet first, is it essential?
Being qualified is already a mandatory objective at PSG. Then there is that of finishing first because we know the consequences on the draw of finishing second. It’s a very important goal, although people may think it’s going to be a less tense game, I don’t think that’s the case. We have the ambition and the duty to finish first.

Presnel Kimpembe is absent, how does he feel?
He had returned to the group, he played against Haifa and Troyes. Everything was fine, but he was stepped on a sore tendon and the pain was too much. There is nothing alarming compared to the matches that we still have to play.

You have conceded a lot of goals from corners, why has it not worked so well in recent weeks?
We have made this observation. I was very annoyed after the last two matches. There are positions that are not respected but it is also a question of commitment. I talked about it this morning with my players, we worked on it. We lose a lot of second balls in the area and it’s a lack of concentration and investment. I think since our first leg against Juventus they have scored a lot of goals from set pieces. We will be solicited in this area. »
