Kylian Mbappe is not worried about the UCL the against Manchester United, despite their loss to Lyon.
Paris Saint Germain suffered their first Ligue 1 defeat against Lyon, losing 2-1 away from home after going 20 matches unbeaten.
Mbappe says the loss is not a source of worry, as they gear up for a last 16 tie in the UCL against United.
“I don’t know if the defeat was deserved. In the first half it was deserved, but after half-time, we still dominated,” Mbappe said after United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan watched in the stands.
“We started well. We have hurt Lyon, who let the storm pass before starting to hit top gear. Lyon had opportunities and scored. We also had situations. After half-time, we put them back in the game. They scored on the only occasion they had, a penalty.”
Mbappe continued: “We have not realised our many opportunities. I’m not worried about the Champions League match. We must take it match by match and wait for the Champions League.
“It feels good to play matches like that. Facing teams that play is the best way to prepare for the upcoming deadlines. It’s up to us to win.
“The goal was to remain undefeated and we will try not to lose again by the end of the season. It’s complicated, yes, to play without Neymar. You must accept it. Last season, he was also injured and it would be nice not to make the same mistakes, otherwise it would mean that we did not learn anything.”
