(VIDEO)Lose 7-2, then make the statement of the week in the Champions League: “Rather than…”


We are entering the final of the group stage of the Champions League. In Group X, it is clear that PSG and Benfica have passed, while Maccabi Haifa and Juventus will decide the way to the Europa League. The Israeli club experienced a debacle in Paris last night, and their coach made one of the most interesting statements after last night’s matches.

In the fifth round of the group stage of the Champions League, PSG outclassed Maccabi from Haifa with a score of 7:2 and thereby secured a place in the round of 16.
Already in the 35th minute, it was 3:0, and Messi, Mbappe and Neymar scored, and the guests through Cech in the 38th minute. Messi scores another goal in the 45th minute, and PSG goes to rest with 4:1.
At the opening of the second half, Sek scored another goal, but Mbappe, Goldberg (own goal) and Soler ensured that PSG recorded a convincing victory.

Despite this, the coach of the guests from Haifa is not dissatisfied. He is aware of Barak Bahar who was in front of him and is satisfied with the play of his players.
“I would rather lose 7-2 than 4-0 playing bad football. I had the best players in the world in front of me, they proved it. We didn’t play badly until the 20th minute, we scored two goals. It’s not nice to concede seven goals, but I feel we did our best. It hurts, but we will keep our heads up,” said Barak Bahar.
His team has three points as many as Juventus before the last round and an even score with this team (total 3:3 from two games), so in case of the same number of points, the trip to the Europa League will be decided. by goal difference, which is currently on Juventus’ side.

In the last round, Benfica will arrive in Haifa, which is also looking for the chance for the first place in the group, while PSG will visit Juventus. The coach of Maccabi believes in his team.
“I thought we could do a miracle, but there was a big difference between the two teams. We still believe in qualifying for the Europa League, we can finish in 3rd place. Fate is in our hands and we are playing at home. “Benfica is a big team, but PSG’s coach did his job and beat Juventus,” Barak Bahar added.

Here is how the situation in group X looks like after five played rounds.
