Antoine Griezmann was fair play with PSG at the final whistle of the knockout stages of the Champions League, encouraging Abdou Diallo to “go to the end”.
“We have to go get her man!” Good spirit, Antoine Griezmann. After the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League between PSG and Barça on Wednesday (1-1), which ended in a draw and the qualification of the Parisians in the quarterfinals, the French striker wished his opponents a ‘go to the end of the competition. It was by addressing Abdou Diallo that the international sent his encouragement to the rival club (video above), but the world champion was just as classy with all the players, showing a huge smile when shaking their hands.
A useful match for Griezmann
Irreproachable in the commitment, Griezmann has won a lot and participated in dismissing the Parisian block, most often seeking to shift his partner in the France team Ousmane Dembélé. Not very dangerous in front of goal, Griezmann however collected a penalty which could have revived everything in this double confrontation without a decisive stop by the Parisian goalkeeper Keylor Navas, on a shot halfway up by Lionel Messi. PSG suffered on Wednesday, and without its guardian angel, it could have been pushed to the edge of the precipice.
The Parisians will have to show a whole different face if they hope to win this season, from the quarter-finals, which will also feature Liverpool, Porto and Borussia Dortmund, while waiting for the end of the eighths next week. Manchester City and Real Madrid will host Borussia Mönchegladbach and Atlético Bergamo respectively on Tuesday evening (at 9 p.m., on RMC Sport), while Bayern Munich and Chelsea will host Lazio and Atlético de Madrid at the same time the next day, always live and exclusively on RMC Sport channels.
