PSG defender Bernat has talked about how he feels his side will deal with the considerable lead they have in the domestic league.
“Sometimes, when a team is well ahead, it means they can lose focus and can’t play at 100%, which can have a negative impact,” the Spaniard told the club’s official website. “But we try to make sure that’s not the case for us. During each game we’re focussed on winning and on doing it in style.”
“We just focus on ourselves, play our game and do what we want to do. We all have the same aim, which is to give the best of ourselves in each game and training session.” “There are a lot of teams with very good players. Winning a game is never easy in this league,” he said. “We work hard not to get caught out. We know that teams are waiting for us. They’re always at 100% when they play us, whether it be at home or away. That makes games tough and never easy.”
This is what Bernat had to say when asked about Tuchel’s philosophy at PSG. “It’s a system I have known since my time in the Bundesliga,” added Bernat. “It’s based on playing attractive football, with the possibility of quick counter-attacks and creating lots of chances. Since the start of the season, we have managed to get a better handle on the strategy. You’ve been able to see that as the matches have gone on.”
