Antoine Griezmann was looking forward to the Champions League meeting with his fellow countrymen of Paris Saint-Germain, but came home to a cold fair. PSG overranked FC Barcelona at Camp Nou, also had to establish Griezmann.
After the match, he appeared in front of the microphone of RMC Sport. “We knew we had to play a perfect match, but we didnt. And she did,” Griezmann had to draw bitter conclusions after the 1-4 defeat in his own home. “We were ready and we wanted to make it a nice game, but they were better than us. Thats all you can say about it.”
Griezmanns buddy Kylian Mbappé stole the show with three hits at Camp Nou. “Im happy for him. Hes been criticized many times, you always have that when you play a little less. But I believe that PSG has a future superstar: one day he will be at the level of Leo (Messi, red.) and Cristiano Ronaldo.”
PSG and Barcelona will play the return match on Wednesday 10 March, in which the Catalans will be able to create a second football miracle. In 2017, they managed to make up for a 4-0 defeat against PSG in the Champions League.
