Blanc: PSG deserved to beat Monaco

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has voiced his disappointment with his side's 1-1 draw against Monaco on Sunday as he feels the reigning champion deserved more.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic gifted PSG an early lead with his second goal of the season, but Radamel Falcao leveled the scoring again after 20 minutes of play and Blanc was left to rue his side's profligacy in front of goal for the remainder of the encounter.

"Without taking anything away from Monaco, because they played well, I think that if we analyze the game and our numbers of chances, we deserved to win," Blanc said at a press conference. "I think we needed to be more efficient with taking opportunities. When you have so many chances, scoring only once is not good enough to secure the points at this level.

"But I have to say that to get so many chances in such a game is not easy and the players deserve credit for creating the opportunities. It is a real disappointment though because if we had taken just one more of our many chances, I think we would have won the game without any problem."

PSG sits second in the Ligue 1 table, trailing Monaco by two points.
