PSG midfielder, Adrien Rabiot, believes that the Ligue 1 club should have beaten Arsenal on Tuesday, as they were the better team and it was their best performance.
The Champions League match ended 1-1 after a goal in the 44th second from Edinson Cavani and a late equaliser from Alexis Sanchez. In the first half, PSG could have easily gone further ahead if Cavani hadn’t continuously wasted chance after chance, and in the second, goalkeeper David Ospina saved the Gunners from going more than one goal down.
Saying this, after Olivier Giroud came on, Arsenal looked like a different team and while we were lucky to leave with a point, I wouldn’t say PSG were exactly robbed.
Speaking after the match, Rabiot claimed that PSG should have won and that he was disappointed with the result yet pleased with their overall performance.
“Overall, I am quite disappointed,” he said to the French press.
“There was good and less good. We managed to create a lot of opportunities. But only scored one goal. So it’s a little frustrating. We deserved to win. We will work, see what was not working. Then we come to face the strongest opponent. It will be better and better and more and more easy for us over the games.
“I think [it was our best game]. In intensity, in aggressiveness, in the number of clear chances in relation to the quality of the opponent in front of us. Overall, it’s a rather successful match. It is even good, at the delivery itself. That’s why we have two feelings that dominate. Satisfaction mingles with our disappointment.”
A draw away to the group favourites is a decent result for Arsenal and I can imagine we feel a lot better about the outcome than PSG do.
