Galtier claimed PSG players were frustrated after Benfica draw

Paris Saint-Germain was once again unsuccessful in their away match in the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier claimed his players were frustrated with the result after their 1-1 draw against Benfica in their third Champions League group stage match.

Last night, PSG took the lead with Lionel Messi's goal in the 22nd minute, but Daniel Pereira's own goal made the two teams go to the locker room with a draw at the end of the first half. Despite the many opportunities for the Parisians, in the end they did not succeed in defeating the opponent and reached a 1-1 draw. PSG has won only 1 in the last 7 away games in the Champions League and has not managed to keep a clean sheet in the last 11 games in the competition.

Galtier said:

"There is a feeling of frustration among the players because they have made a lot of effort.

"We had chances in both periods, even if Benfica had some in the first period and that our goalkeeper was busy and efficient. They were quite dangerous.

"We had a fairly good technical mastery with a lot of people up front. In the first half, we didn't have many chances, even though we scored a wonderful goal.

"In the second half, we asked the boys to have more mobility, more depth and more input from the wings. We had a good second half."

Last night, Messi became the first player in the history of the Champions League who was able to score against forty different clubs. Gatier added:

"After making a sprint, he [Messi] felt tired. He came off, because he felt tired and a fresh team-mate was much better at that moment in the game."
