´Will to win´ ensures poor PSG prevail

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Laurent Blanc believes his side’s ‘will to win’ secured victory in a poor performance against Valenciennes.

The capital club struggled to a 1-0 win against Valenciennes, who lost 4-0 against Nice in the previous contest and are entrenched in Ligue 1’s relegation zone.

With his side failing to get an early goal, Blanc was disappointed in PSG’s struggles to break down a resolute Valenciennes defence before Edinson Cavani’s winner on the stroke of half-time.

“You know before the game what Valenciennes will try to do; if they are able to,” Blanc said after Wednesday’s game.

“I think that if you score during the first 20 minutes the game is over but we could not do it.

“We did not cope well with some situations and it gives strength to the opponent.

“We didn’t give up and we tried to come back – the will to win the game was enough tonight to do so.”

PSG will attempt to maintain their unbeaten Ligue 1 record as they host 11th-placed Toulouse at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.
