Samir Nasri slams PSG for inability to beat ‘average’ Borussia Dortmund – Get French Football News

Paris Saint-Germain were supremely confident in their ability to overturn the one-goal deficit to Borussia Dortmund, heading into the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final. However, that confidence – perhaps over-confidence – did not translate onto the pitch, however, with Borussia Dortmund beating PSG on the night, sealing a 2-0 aggregate win and securing qualification to the Champions League final. 

Whilst PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was kind in his appraisal of Les Parisiens’ performance and their run in the Champions League, citing a lack of “luck” on the night, former Olympique de Marseille, Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri, now a consultant for Canal Pluswas more searing his appraisal of the situation. 

“They weren’t good. They didn’t play the match that they had to play. They weren’t aggressive, they only hummed in the, there was never a shift,” began the Frenchman in his post-match analysis on Canal Plus. 

He then went on to question Borussia Dortmund’s level and therefore PSG’s inability to beat such a team. “This Dortmund team, we think it’s a big name but it is an average team. Everyone was happy when PSG drew them,” said a visibly frustrated Nasri. His former team, Marseille, is the last French team remaining in European competition. They face Atalanta in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League semi-final on Thursday, with the score level (1-1).
