PSG mettle impresses Ancelotti

3 May 2012 17:15

Carlo Ancelotti was delighted to see Paris Saint-Germain get back in the Ligue 1 title race following their 2-0 win over Saint-Etienne on Wednesday.

After leaders Montpellier drew 2-2 against Evian a day earlier, Ancelotti's side moved to within three points of Rene Girdard's side with three matches to play.

And the former Milan and Chelsea coach expects the title race to be decided on the last day of the season.

"Everyone was saying PSG had lost the title, but football is bizarre," Ancelotti said.

"We were disappointed after losing to Lille, but things are looking up now. Now we need to try and win our last three matches."

"Our primary goal is to be playing Champions League football next season, and we managed to get back to within three points.

"Not a bad effort considering the pressure we were under, and we bounced back well after losing to Lille. As I've said all along, I think the title will be decided on the last day of the season."

PSG will have to deal with Valenciennes, Rennes and Lorient in their last three games of the campaign.
