Berlin, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th Oct, 2021 ) :Jesse Marsch admits his RB Leipzig team face their own mission impossible if they are to reach the knock-out stages of the Champions League after defeat at Paris Saint-Germain meant a third straight loss in Europe.
"The Europa League must still be a goal, but we must also fight," said Marsch as Leipzig need to bridge the four-point gap behind Brugge if they are to finish third in Group A and reach the Europa League.
"You have to look to win the remaining three games," said defender Willi Orban.
Leipzig were punished as a loose Tyler Adams pass fell to the feet of Mbappe, who provided the assist for Messi to equalise.
"When we make mistakes like that," Marsch complained, "Messi and Mbappe are ready." Leipzig were unfortunate to have a penalty awarded against them when Mohamed Simakan got a faint touch on Mbappe, who went down in the area and Messi drilled in the winning goal.
"We almost have to deliver a perfect performance to have a chance," said Marsch, "and what's really outstanding is that we almost did that." Silva finished a superb move to claim his first Champions League goal, then Mukiele fired in a pin-point accurate cross from Angelino.
