Yohan Cabaye gave his thoughts on PSG’s chances of eliminating Bayern Munich in the Champions League. At the microphone of RMC Sport, the former Ile-de-France midfielder praised the new mental strength of the club in the capital.
Author of a heroic match in Munich against Bayern (2-3), PSG has its destiny in its hands and could join the semi-finals of the Champions League for the second year in a row. To achieve this, Mauricio Pochettino’s charges will have to finish the job again this Tuesday during the return quarter-final at the Parc des Princes (from 9 p.m. on RMC Sport 1). Easier said than done as Yohan Cabaye recalled for RMC Sport this Saturday.
“I watched very carefully and it is true that the result is positive. Now there is a second round, warned the international tricolor to the 48 caps. It is difficult to project because it remains a big team opposite . We saw it in particular on the face of the first leg. The coach said that it was a game plan to wait in a block and go against. It worked well but at home it could be a different match. “

Cabaye welcomes the new mental strength of PSG
Passed by PSG between January 2014 and July 2015, Yohan Cabaye experienced two eliminations in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Chelsea and Barcelona. The former midfielder believes in Paris and even thinks that the group has used recent disappointments to progress.
“A lot can happen and I sincerely hope that PSG will qualify for the semi-finals,” said the player, including Lille and Newcastle. I think that mentally they have improved compared to the disappointments of the previous seasons. It serves them today and especially in the first leg. “
And to justify the big irregularity of the PSG this season: “It is a question of implication, motivation and determination, underlined the new retiree. When the big match arrives, they manage to transform and to make results magnificent. It’s a problem of mental focus and the desire to hurt yourself in easier games. “
The cruel defeats, the humiliations,… so many experiences that have strengthened the PSG and shaped its European epic. Almost ten years before the acquisition of the Ile-de-France club by the owners from Qatar, PSG must show that they have learned the lesson and must show their new collective strength against Bayern.
