Paris Saint-Germain´s positive response buoys Tuchel

23 September 2018 19:17

Thomas Tuchel was thrilled with Paris Saint-Germain's reaction to their defeat to Liverpool after the Ligue 1 champions saw off Rennes 3-1.

Adrien Rabiot's early own goal provided an early set back, but Angel Di Maria's sweet strike restored parity on the stroke of half-time, with Thomas Meunier and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting completing the turnaround after the interval.

The victory keeps PSG perfect in Ligue 1 under Tuchel, with six wins from six, and the former Borussia Dortmund boss was delighted with how his side responded to their 3-2 defeat at Anfield in the Champions League.

"This is a good reaction from us after the match at Anfield and after the first goal of Rennes," Tuchel told beIN Sports. 

"I am happy. We played a match with a lot of courage and intensity. We improved. We still need to improve as well. 

"We took 15 to 20 minutes to respond [to Rennes' goal]. When we lost the ball we recovered it very quickly, thanks to our pressing.

"It was hard to defend against Rennes. It was a tough match but it's good to win for our confidence."
