Galtier manager of PSG, Warns team. PSG needs to stop giving up goals after giving up five in their last two games against Maccabi Haifa and Troyes, according to, who issued a warning. For PSG, victory in the Champions League and Ligue 1 against inferior teams is no longer sufficient. They need a more convincing victory against those opponents if they’re to ultimately advance in Europe, and conceding goals has been a recent issue. Galtier was dissatisfied with his team’s defensive performance despite a 4-3 victory over Troyes on Saturday, which was inspired by Lionel Messi.
We gave up three goals, and that’s three too many, the PSG manager remarked following the game. We must make it right. This week, we’ve scored 11 goals but given up five, which is simply too many. The three tonight represent more than half of what we have previously surrendered. When you let up three goals in the Champions League, you have very little chance of winning, so we’ll need to work with the players to remedy that.
Finally, the three goals Troyes allowed threatened to prevent them from claiming yet another Ligue 1 victory. They don’t want a recurrence of the 2020–21 season, when Lille defeated them for the championship, even if there is now a little risk of them losing their place at the top of the table. Even though they have officially qualified for the Champions League knockout round, they have still to learn whether they will finish first or second in their group. They must defeat Juventus on Wednesday night to ensure that they surpass Benfica for the top spot.
