Simon Mignolet insists he was barely tested as Paris Saint-Germain’s all-star line-up of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar failed to beat Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men took the lead on 15 minutes when Mbappe skinned Clinton Mata before squaring for Ander Herrera to sweep home.
However, the Belgian side equalised when Eduard Sobol’s cross was fired home by Hans Vanaken via a deflection off Presnel Kimpembe to make it 1-1.
That was how it stayed as PSG enjoyed 64 per cent possession but struggled to create chances as Mignolet told RMC Sport in quotes carried by Get French Football News: ‘I didn’t really have a lot of work to do, we played very well collectively.
‘We didn’t concede chances against a team with an incredible attack. You can’t mark them one on one, they have so much quality to get past you.
‘We tried to defend collectively to not leave them with any spaces. I made two or three saves that weren’t that difficult.’
