Wijnaldum scored his first and second goal for PSG after making them come from behind to lead 2-1, but Leipzig equalised with a stoppage-time penalty for a 2-2 draw in Champions League Group A. The French side dropped down to the second spot after Wednesday’s 2-2 draw in Germany. The PSG coach is still aiming for the top spot and he feels the most important thing is to advance.
Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first two goals for PSG, who were without the injured Lionel Messi, but RB Leipzig equalised with a stoppage-time penalty. PSG are on eight points, one behind Manchester City, with Club Brugge third on four points. Leipzig have been eliminated with one point from four matches.
“Well, it changes nothing, doesn’t it?” Pochettino told reporters. “The goal is to go through. If you are able to be first, then it is much better. “We will have to play for first position. The only thing that changed was that we were first and they [City] were second and now they are first and we are second. “But at the end of the day, the goal in the group stage is always to go through.”
PSG travel to Manchester on November 25. City beat Brugge 4-1 on Wednesday thanks to goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.
