PSG attacker Angel di Maria admits they struggled to handle Manchester City in midweek.

Di Maria says City's possession game made the difference as they lost the Champions League group game 2-1.

"Difficult question… at City there are extraordinary players, of a high level… A bit like at home. Sometimes when you have such a close game you can be less good sometimes. And in this case they play very well with possession," said Di Maria.

"Guardiola makes sure that his players always play the same way. It's not easy to move around in front of this kind of team. We tried to play our game, it was difficult to cope with their pressing.

"They work well together. We tried to play our game, sometimes we succeeded, sometimes not. We had the chance to lead and then we could even have equalised but I think it's a Champions League match…"
