PSG boss, Mauricio Pochettino admits his side lacked enough energy to stay with Manchester City in the second-half of the Champions League semi-final first leg.
The Parisians were utterly dominant in the first-half and deservedly lead at the break thanks to a header from skipper, Marquinhos.
Nevertheless, the home side allowed City to take control in the second stanza and eventually lost 2-1.
Pochettino said after the game: “There were two different halves, we did well in the first half but it is difficult to eliminate a team like City. We deserved to be ahead but they were better than us and dominated the second half. The two goals were accidents, but they created more than us. It was one half for each team.
“The two goals are very disappointing. It is difficult to accept but that can happen, and it has happened in a semi-final. It is very painful.
“It is difficult to explain why they were better but we were better in the first half. It was difficult to cope, their physical condition, they were more aggressive. We didn’t show the energy you need. The red card could be yellow, could be red, it was an action.
“The second leg, in football you need to believe. They have the advantage.”
