Tuchel: I Expected PSG To Struggle For Goals

Thomas Tuchel has said he is not in the least worried about his side struggling to get goals against Pontivy GSI in their Coupe de France fixture.

However, they eventually won 4-0, with a Jule own goal starting the onslaught. The Parisiens had to wait till the 70th minute before Neymar scored.

Mbappe made it 3-0 from the spot, before Draxler capped off the victory with the fourth and Tuchel says he expected scoring goals to come hard against the fifth tier side.

“I was expecting this type of match,” the German told reporters post-match.

“If you play seriously, it’s not possible for a fifth division team to beat us. That’s what the team did.

“We did two very intense and very serious training sessions, so I was confident before the match.

“It was not easy because the opponent was very organised and we lost a lot of easy balls.

“The last passes were not precise enough to score two or three goals in the first half. We have no injuries, we have won the merit and for that, I am happy.

“We can play better, but it was not necessary today, that’s why it’s a good start to the year for us.”
