Kylian Mbappé and Neymar were from PSG in Lorient this Sunday evening but the two men appreciated the qualification of their team (1-0) from the bench. The French and Brazilian did not come into play, even if Thomas Tuchel sent them to warm up shortly before the goal of Pablo Sarabia (80th). “Kylian Mbappé and Neymar wanted to enter but at that time, we scored, said the German coach at the microphone of Eurosport 2 after the meeting. It was good that they were with us because it is an important competition for us. In my head it was a possibility to get them in for extra time, but not for the first 90 minutes. “
Other usual PSG holders had been left to rest (Marquinhos, Marco Verratti and Thomas Meunier) while Juan Bernat was injured.
