Mood in PSG camp poor ahead of Chelsea visit.
Paris Saint-Germain have been described as “downbeat” ahead of their meeting with Chelsea in this week’s Champions League, with manager Laurent Blanc admitting his side go into the game in “negative conditions”.
Guardian Sport journalist Daniel Taylor has been live-tweeting from Blanc’s pre-match press conference, and says that injuries and poor recent form look to be affecting the Ligue 1 giants as they face a tough game against Jose Mourinho’s in-form side.
It’s a downbeat press conference – lots of injuries, David Luiz talking about crowd being “asleep”, Blanc admitting “negative conditions.”
