Surprise on the front page of Mundo Deportivo on Monday. The Catalan sports daily highlights the interview with a certain Luis Fernandez on the eve of the Champions League round of 16 return between Real Sociedad and PSG, this Tuesday (9 p.m.). Former player and coach of the capital club, he is obviously not unknown in Spain, he is a native of Tarifa and ex-coach of Bilbao. Not to mention his past as a player for the France team. The beIN SPORTS consultant nevertheless gives the keys to the match… for Real. “I think Real are going through a bit of a difficult time with so many injuries and everything that’s affecting them. “It’s a team whose style of play I like. They have to think about scoring quickly and they will surely scare PSG, but it has to be quick,” he swears.

And to continue, on the subject of Parisian weaknesses: “I think that this was perfectly seen during the last match against Monaco, in Ligue 1 (0-0 last Friday at Louis II, Editor’s note). When the opposing team presses a lot and well, getting the ball out of PSG can be complicated. (…) If they press high and quickly… They must do it quickly, score and put pressure on PSG, which is what has been the most difficult for them to bear historically in the Champions League.” Beaten 2-0 in the first leg, after having had a good first hour of play, Real has been struggling for several weeks and has only won one of its last nine matches in all competitions.
