PSG manager, Enrique reacts to 3-2 defeat to Barcelona


Paris Saint-Germain boss, Luis Enrique has reflected on their 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Wednesday.

Raphinha opened the scoring at the Parc des Princes, but the hosts went in front thanks to goals from Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha.

Barca levelled the game through another Raphinha goal, before Andreas Christensen headed in the winner.

Enrique, speaking to TNT Sports, said: “It was a pity because I think we started the match properly and in a good mood. Disappointing after we conceded the goal.

“Second half started in the best way but suddenly we suffered the second goal. We created some chances but for us it’s a pity.

“There’s still the spirit to go to Barcelona and try to win.

“Sometimes you have to change things and it happens just when we draw the match, we created more chances. The team was at a high level at that moment. But they are a good team.”
