Bayern - PSG: "so reassuring to have Navas behind you ...", assures Vikash Dhorasoo


The former Parisian midfielder greatly enjoyed the quarter-final first leg between Bayern and Paris. It highlights the services

After attending the Parisian success in Munich (3-2) in the premises of the Chaîne L'Equipe where he is a consultant, Vikash Dhorasoo, the former Parisian midfielder, returned to the lessons of this evening.

What do you remember from this PSG victory?



We loved it!

There were a lot of emotions.

I prefer to watch this kind of match than Manchester City - Dortmund (2-1) on Tuesday where the guys show that they are super strong technically and that they do not lose the ball ... I prefer what happened with Bayern and Paris where we thrilled, it was a bit crazy.

Even on both sides, we saw that one team was superior to the other and yet it was the one with the fewest arguments that won.

It looks more like real football!

Have you been surprised by the Parisian realism?

We can see that Paris is less strong collectively but with incredible players all the same.

Because Neymar, Di Maria and Mbappé at the start of the match made the difference at three.

But that's another way of seeing football: playing less well, defending and then trying everything for all with three players, I love it!

And in front it was impressive because they don't keep the ball just to show that they are good at the pass to ten.

No, things are happening, with risk taking.

There is a lot of variety.

And madness too.

But as Bayern are playing hard, they are also freeing up space.

What does Kylian Mbappé's double inspire you?

On the first goal there is still a mistake from Neuer.

On his second, Boateng defends very badly, normally he has to prevent the strike inside.

But Mbappé is a constant threat.

He is strong.

In big games we can count on him.

Like Neymar.

From the start we felt that Neymar was going to do great things for us.

We no longer know how to qualify the services of Navas, no?

In all of his stops, he inspires so much confidence.

It must be so reassuring to have him behind you ... Because you tell yourself that if you make a mistake or a little worse, what will he be?

And there it is.

He's a hell of a man.

And he's been at this level for a long time.

That's great.

Marquinhos who scores injured, it was crazy too, wasn't it?

It's great that he's scoring but it's a big loss.

Marquinhos is really the basic man for the defense.

And then the energy he sends, the confidence, the experience.

Obviously the return match will be very, very complicated.

How difficult will the return match be precisely?

Already, as there is no longer an audience, the notion of home-away does not make too much sense.

And I don't think it's fair today to keep the notion of an away goal.

PSG have an advantage now but Bayern will come to the Park to qualify.

We must not forget that Paris was massacred during the first half against Barça.

Do you think the return leg against Barcelona can serve as an example for Bayern?

So I always tell myself that when you have just won 3-2 at Bayern, you have to have had a great game.

But if PSG plays like that again, low, not very well defending, that will not be enough.

Unless Mbappé gives two goals.

But hey if we have to renew the same shoot-out ratio, it's hot!

Did you like the Parisian environment?

I really liked the start of the match for the Gueye-Danilo duo.

After Marquinhos came out Danilo backed off and Gueye continued to be very, very good.

But for Danilo it was not easy.

We saw it on the goal of Choupo-Moting: he lost sight of it.

We saw that he was not a specialist in the post.

Normally in this zone he cannot let go of the attacker.

It was hard to imagine a Dagba, Danilo, Kimpembe and Bakker defense in the quarterfinals ...

It's pretty crazy yes.

And without Verratti or Paredes in the middle ... Fortunately there were the three great players in front.

But the workforce is more complete on the Bayern side.

It also remains to be seen who will be available with a trip to Strasbourg by then ...

Many said that the championship did not prepare PSG for the European Cup, for once we could not take it any longer!

It might even tire them out.

But hey, Bayern has also lost the world.

Hopefully Verratti will be there.

He's someone important in the workforce.

You have to hold the ball anyway in the middle.

You have to go do the pressing, bring out the balls cleanly and he knows how to do all that.
