Laurent Blanc "very satisfied" by Barcelona victory

Laurent Blanc says that Paris Saint-Germain's domestic form can improve on the back of their 3-2 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc has declared himself "very satisfied" with his side's 3-2 victory over Barcelona last night.

The Parisians inflicted a first defeat of the season on Barca, producing a battling display to come out on top in the Group F encounter at the Parc des Princes.

PSG have made an indifferent start to their Ligue 1 campaign, finding themselves five points behind leaders Marseille, but Blanc believes that playing in Europe will only benefit his side.

"I am very satisfied," FIFA.com quotes the 48-year-old as saying. "I think for those who like Paris Saint-Germain and French football it was a good evening. I will remember this win, as will the players and all those who were at the stadium. We do this job to live nights like these.

"I don't deny that our start to the season has been a bit more complicated than we wished, but tonight, the smell, the Champions League, Barcelona, subconsciously you are more determined. On nights like tonight you either rediscover your team or find yourself at the bottom of a hole."

PSG return to league action this weekend when they take on Monaco.
