​Bailly denies Man Utd overconfident against PSG

Eric Bailly does not believe Manchester United underestimated PSG.

Given the injuries sustained by PSG before the game, including the likes of Neymar and Edinson Cavani, United were pre-game favorites.

But the game played out differently, with PSG showing their quality, especially through the likes of Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe.

And Bailly does not believe United were overconfident.

"No, we played on our strengths," he said to reporters after the game.

"We played on the counter-attack.

"The first half we were good, we defended well. On a mistake, we conceded the first goal.

"After that, the team tried to give its best. Unfortunately, the second goal came next, so it's a shame."
