The second period was better for us, as we played with more intensity. [Mathieu] Bodmer and [Adrien] Rabiot gave greater security to the team. [Javier] Pastore was not used to playing in midfield, which explained our early difficulties, but he did well once he moved behind the strikers, though things were difficult for [Jeremy] Menez tonight,” said Ancelotti. PSG are the only undefeated team in the French league.
