PSG are not simply a two-man-band who will struggle with Neymar injured, and Tuchel will be eager to show that even without their star man, PSG are a force to be reckoned with in Europe as much as they are in Ligue 1.February 11, 2019
Thomas Tuchel has done brilliantly at the beginning of his tenure at Paris Saint-Germain. PSG had made an unbeaten start to the league, which only ended as they finally lost, 2-1 away at Lyon. Tuchel set a consecutive wins record in Ligue 1 and qualified top from PSG’s Champions League group, ahead of last season’s finalists Liverpool. Next up are a resurgent Manchester United under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, himself unbeaten in his new job.
PSG’s huge wealth and stellar attacking line-up see them painted as a team of big names, in which individual talent renders tactical nous unnecessary, especially in their domestic league. But, to think such would be a mistake, as Tuchel’s PSG are more than just big-name players.
