By: Manu Tournoux

Even if the chances of PSG being eliminated from the Champions League by Real Sociedad are tiny, they do exist.

It’s the big night ! This Tuesday, at 9 p.m., Paris Saint-Germain will be in Spain, at the Anoeta stadium, to face Real Sociedad in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. A priori, the capital club protected itself from a cruel disappointment by winning (2-0) in the first leg, at the Parc des Princes on February 14.

Especially since the hosts of the Parisians are currently in a negative spiral. “They’ve been a good La Liga team lately, but since then they haven’t won, they were swept away by Sevilla FC this weekend (3-2) and were eliminated from the Copa del Rey in the semi-finals. final by Mallorca », recalls Jean-Michel Larqué on RMC. The sports consultant will make his comeback on the small screen during this meeting. He will accompany journalist Jean Resseguié on the microphone.

The Mbappé “melodrama”

“Not qualifying under these conditions would be a terrible disillusionment, continues the former captain of Saint-Etienne. However, we cannot say that Mbappé prepared well (for this 8th). I happened to play Champions League matches away from home, even when you have a two-goal lead it’s very complicated. PSG could have done without this melodrama. »

On July 15, 2018, Jean-Michel Larqué ended his media career following the Football World Cup in Russia. However, a little over six months later, he returned to RMC to replace Rolland Courbis, the latter being named coach of the Caen club. Since August 2019, he has been a columnist on Jérôme Rothen’s show, “Rothen s’enflamme”, every Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
