Champions League: PSG gave Barcelona “cold bath of reality” – Ronald Koeman

Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has urged his players to focus on their next game against Monaco in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Pochettino made the plea following PSG’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg win over Barcelona on Tuesday night.

The former Tottenham Hotspur coach also said that PSG are capable of doing anything after thrashing Barcelona 4-1.

A hat-trick from Kylian Mbappe and Moise Kean’s goal gave PSG an advantage ahead of the second leg in Paris.

Lionel Messi did score a goal for Ronald Koeman’s side at Camp Nou.

“When you win, you are always happy and then the performance was very good,” Pochettino told PSG TV.

“The players deserve everything and we feel very proud of our players for their fantastic match.

“But now we need to be focused on the game against Monaco and this was only the first leg and we still need to play the second leg in Paris.

“But we showed that playing in the way we did today, with that intensity and standard, this team is capable of doing anything.”
