Tuchel men faced a shocking defeat after a surprising turn of events.

Paris Saint-Germain

 failed to secure their win against 

Monaco

on Friday but they are hoping to make up for their loss when they face

RB Leipzig

. Tuchel men who were ahead by the two goals which

Kylian Mbappe

scored were surprised by Monaco’s players when they scored three goals to end the match with 3-2 win over PSG. According to team’s coach the third disallowed goal from their side and their mistakes were the reason for their drop on the second-half.

"We controlled the first half with two goals scored and two others [disallowed], I think the third was valid," Tuchel told Telefoot.

"In the second half, we lacked the same concentration, we did not play seriously enough, we did not take the ball with the same quality and we didn't defend seriously enough either.”

"This is why we are completely responsible. Maybe it was too easy and the players got the impression that it was already 3-0 or 4-0 when it was only 2-0.”

"We have to accept the criticism because we have completely stopped playing football.”

"We have not done what is necessary to win a match: defending in a block, remaining aggressive, remaining attentive in behind.”

"We have lost also a little strength in the midfield but we had to make changes. It's always possible to lose but losing a match like that is very weird.”

"In the first two minutes of the second half, we had two very high recoveries but then we stopped completely. It was not possible to win the duels; we were always late. It is not normal."

PSG Coach also talked about their upcoming clash with RB Leipzig saying: "The match against Leipzig is going to be very difficult, but it would not have been much different if we'd won."

"We had to get Kylian out, not take any risk with

Marquinhos

and make

Neymar

play for a few minutes.”

"The mix between the two matches, Monaco and Leipzig, is perhaps also a reason which explains why we lost our concentration."

"Neymar is determined. He will start against Leipzig," He added.
