Julian Draxler

has not been in a good form in the current season. A combination of injuries and underwhelming performances saw the player fell out of favor at Parc des Prince, but a strong performance against

Nice

might turn things around for him.

Mauricio Pochettino

’s team won their Saturday match against Nice with a 2-1 result and Draxler was a key player for his team’s attacking line. The 27-year-old scored the opener for PSG in the 22nd minute and was able to create four goal-scoring chances during the match. In a post-match interview, Pochettino has spoken about Draxler’s performance.

“I’m happy with what he did today, he knew how to read situations when the team needed him,”

Pochettino said.

“He made the connection between the offensive and the defensive on several occasions. I’m happy for him that he scored. It’s very good for his confidence.”

PSG will face

Barcelona

in the Champions League on Tuesday before continuing their Ligue 1 campaign with a match against

Monaco

four days later.
