Ancelotti struggling to explain PSG inconsistency

The Italian cannot find a reason why his team can play so badly one match and so well the next after they claimed a 3-0 win over Nice on Sunday
Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he does no know why his team can perform as well as they did in the 3-0 win over Nice and as badly as they did in midweek against Evian TG.

The Ligue 1 leaders slumped to a penalties defeat in the Coupe de France against the minnows but bounced back in style, with goals from Jeremy Menez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Clement Chantome ensuring a handsome victory at Parc des Princes on Sunday.

"We saw a lot of intensity and aggression. It was tough tonight," Ancelotti told Canal +. "The key was there. I don't know why the team can play as well as they did tonight and as badly as they did against Evian.

"Anyway, it happened. We are happy with how we did tonight."

Meanwhile, PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has stressed that his side are not invincible, despite the star talent within les Parisiens' squad.

"We're not untouchable," he added. "We showed a good attitude tonight. We wanted to show that Evian was just a blip. We wnated to bounce back, we did it well.

"We don't pick our matches. We don't always do as well as we want in terms of playing well or playing badly."

PSG hold a nine-point lead as they chase a first Ligue 1 title in almost two decades.
