Champions League: Koeman gives up on qualification after 4-1 defeat to PSG

Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has admitted their Champions League run is over, following a 4-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

Speaking after the game, Koeman said their chances of qualifying is very slim.

Kylian Mbappe netted a hat-trick and Moise Kean was also on target in a convincing win for the French champions.

The result puts PSG firmly in control of the last-16 tie.

“There’s nothing for it but to accept that they were way superior to us in the second half. They showed they have a more complete team than us. We accept that. But we have to improve things about our play.

“We knew that this kind of thing could happen because we’re playing against a great side. Physically and in experience – in fact, in a number of things – they’re well ahead of us.

“I could tell you lies but the fact is that at 4-1 down from the home leg, there are very few chances of going through. This match shows us how much we have to improve, particularly at Champions League level,” Koeman said.
