Messi bows his head apologize to fans for his bad performance, memorable action with Bayern star
Even after PSG’s loss to Bayern in the first leg of the 1/8 round of the Champions League, Messi did not appear to be discouraged or disheartened by the result.
Messi and PSG individually did not have strong performances against Bayern, which resulted in the French club being forced to suffer a disheartening loss with a final score of 0-1. “El Pulga” accompanied a number of players to the PSG fan group to apologize and thank them for coming to the field to cheer for the home team. He understood what the whole squad had displayed, and he thanked them for coming to the field to cheer for the home team.
Messi has been accompanied by Neymar as well as Ramos. However, despite their obvious distress, the players did not appear to be in a desperate situation. PSG also has the second leg on Bayern’s field at 3am on March 9 to fix the mistake, despite the fact that it is well aware that the game will be difficult and contain many obstacles.
Messi made a kind gesture for defender Alphonso Davies in addition to expressing his regret and gratitude to the supporters of Paris Saint-Germain. After initially refusing to trade shirts with the Bayern player for three years, the Argentine superstar finally gave up and decided to do so.
Remember in 2020, when Bayern defeated Barcelona with a score of 8-2 also in the 1/8 round of the C1 Cup, Alphonso Davies sought to exchange shirts with Messi. This was the same round in which Bayern defeated Barcelona. However, the striker who was born in 1987 did not accept it because he was in a very depressed state when Barcelona suffered a string of defeats.
After waiting for three years without success, Alphonso Davies was overjoyed when he finally got what he wanted. The defender currently under contract with Bayern Munich has admitted in the past that he is a devoted supporter of Messi.
The Whoscored statistics website only awarded Messi 6.9 points for his performance in this game, which did not result in a high score for him. However, despite coming off the bench, Alphonso Davies was able to score 7 points, which was a higher total than “El Pulga.”
Kylian Mbappe, a striker for the team, is confident that he and his colleagues will emerge victorious from their match against Bayern Munich and earn a spot in the Champions League.
The first leg of the 1/8 round of the Champions League was played between Bayern Munich and PSG, and Bayern Munich won the match 1-0. Kingsley Coman was the solitary scorer for the German giants, who took the lead thanks to his goal. Mbappe, despite everything, remained upbeat on the possibility of making a comeback in the second leg, which will take place away from home.
Following the game, the French striker commented, “We needed to get back on our feet as soon as possible.” We will travel to Munich in the hopes of winning tickets to the next stage. Everyone needs to make sure they are getting enough sleep and eating well so that they are in good shape for the second part of the journey. When we play football in an ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ manner, it makes them nervous.”
Mbappe spent the first half of this game on the bench before being inserted into the game by coach Galtier in the second half. The French striker had two opportunities to knock the ball into the net for Bayern Munich, but his offside position was not called either time.
In the meantime, midfielder Sergio Ramos made the following statement: “I can empathize with the annoyance that the fans of the squad are feeling. In the second leg, we will need to demonstrate a higher level of boldness and play in a more direct manner. PSG desires to win and play to the best of their abilities, but football is what it is. Sometimes we perform really well, and other times we perform quite poorly. The final product is the only thing that matters. The more competitions we take part in, the more experience we will accumulate. Everything will turn out for the best.”
As for the head coach of PSG, Christophe Galtier, he had this to say: “Clearly, there is cause for disappointment. The first half was a pretty challenging one for us. Unfortunately, Bayern scored just as I was ready to throw Mbappe on the field to replace another player. They made it difficult, but our full-backs have room for improvement going forward. After being the better team for the first 60 minutes, Bayern was entitled to score, but after falling down, we were the team who played the best in the final 25 minutes.”
On the other side of the line, Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann shared his thoughts as follows: “The first quarter of play was highlighted by strong performances from every member of the team. I must admit that I was taken aback by the length of time that I had on the ball. Didn’t anticipate PSG to be such a spectator in the match. We got off to a strong start after the halftime break, and then things began to even out, despite the fact that they were able to put the ball in the net twice, both times while being offside.”
