In which we listen in on a quartet of PSG players – Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi, Thomas Meurier and Julian Draxler – discussing the prospect of playing Barcelona over a pizza supper, shortly after beating the Catalans 4-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
The conversation, though while mostly polite and respectful, is in French so you may want to turn on the subtitles to catch some of the following fateful remarks:
We’re gonna have to hold firm. I’m calling it. The first 20 minutes, it’s going to be tough.
I think we’ll make it this year. We’re already four goals ahead, yes – four goals!
For the record, PSG didn’t hold firm for the first 20 minutes and Barca ended up winning 6-1 to send them packing in dramatic fashion.
Hindsight, eh? What a bugger.
