Lucas Hernandez swings at his brother Théo!

While the two brothers will play for their European future this Wednesday on the last day of the group stage of the Champions League, Lucas Hernandez spoke of the differences between his game and that of his younger brother.

One of the two will inevitably be left behind, if not both. And between Lucas Hernandez and Théo Hernandez, the eldest is clearly the best placed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League. A victory for PSG in Dortmund would indeed guarantee it to continue the adventure in C1, with first place in the group at stake. AC Milan will have to count on a victory in Newcastle and a poor performance by the Parisians in Germany.

For the first time, the two brothers faced each other during the two matches between PSG and AC Milan, with a victory for each side, the French champions winning 3-0 at the Parc des Princes before losing 2-1 at San Siro. These two face-to-face events resulted in quite a clash of styles, according to the former Munich player. “ We are completely different. It all depends on what we’re looking for: if it’s a pure defender, it will be me and if it’s a piston, carried forward, it will be him. he confided in the columns of Parisian.

Defensively, he feels superior to his brother thanks to “its defensive culture” and to “his concentration throughout a meeting”. “Sometimes he still has little gaps of air, swings in attention,” he emphasized, envying her nonetheless: “His determination in front of goal. This ability to project himself forward, his high-intensity ball handling. In life, you can’t have everything.”

Opponents until recently, the two brothers find themselves rivals in the French team. “It’s an honor, an incredible pride to be in competition with Théo. It’s still extremely rare to see this, he said. If I play, I’m delighted, if it’s him, I’m even more delighted. This is not window dressing. I speak the truth, from my heart.”
