The Parisian team had to play 110 games to reach the Champions League final, the longest wait in history.
In recent years, much has been criticized for PSG on their low performances in the Champions. That they were spending too much, that they didn’t have a winning mentality, that crossing the barrier of the rooms would be impossible. All that was in the past …
The Parisian team gave Leipzig a football beating this Tuesday, in the semifinals of the competition, and thus got into their first final of the maximum European competition.
What seemed impossible is now a reality, and the numbers speak volumes for this story, which seemed like it would never have a happy ending. It is that PSG is the team that had to wait the longest to reach its first Champions League final.
After Tuesday’s triumph, the Parisians finally reached the decisive duel in their 110th match in the tournament, the biggest mark surpassing Arsenal in 2006 (it needed 90 crashes). The wait was worth it anyway.
110 – @PSG_English have reached their first ever European Cup / Champions League final; this was their 110th game in the competition – the most played by a side before reaching their first final, overtaking Arsenal’s record of 90 between 1971-2006. Finally. #RBLPSG pic.twitter.com/vREUq2qYrX
