The 28-year-old also said that PSG’s two early goals changed the games and put them under difficulty in the first half. Nevertheless, the midfielder is quite happy with their performance and keen on carrying it for their next game.
“We started badly, especially the opening 20 minutes, we suffered, we sat too deep, but then we played well in the second half,” Rabiot told Canale 5(via Football Italia)
“We could have done even more, being more clinical. I am a bit angry, especially because of the first half.”
“We conceded two early goals, too early, and the game changed,” the midfielder said.
“We proved that we could do better in the second half, we had chances, but we must continue to work and think of Benfica at home.”
