Laurent Blanc credited Angers' resilient display following they became the first side to quit Paris Saint-Germain scoring in 27 Ligue 1 games.
Angers held Paris Saint-Germain to a goalless draw on Tuesday, impressing Laurent Blanc with their defensive techniques.
The Ligue 1 leaders were unable to safe a 10th consecutive win inside the major flight in spite of enjoying more than 70 per cent of your possession in the Stade Jean-Bouin.
PSG had scored in 26 successive league fixtures beforehand and coach Blanc paid credit to the hosts' stoic display.
"It actually wasn't easy to play," he said. "If you place ten opposition players in their very own half of your field, if they may be well-organised and disciplined and pushed on by the residence fans and are physically sturdy, I can let you know, it isn't simple to score ambitions," Blanc mentioned.
"We had probabilities, but sadly we didn't score. If we had scored early, it would have already been an incredibly diverse match.
"But we also need to spend tribute to this Angers side. We're always speaking about Paris Saint-Germain, but this time an opponent managed to accomplish precisely what they set out to do: defend effectively and have two or three fantastic chances on the counter. Nicely played."
Kevin Trapp echoed his Blanc's sentiments, adding: "It wasn't straightforward, but we knew just before the game that it wasn't going to be. We did everything we could to win.
"At the finish with the day, you need to admit that Angers played nicely."
PSG hold a 14-point benefit more than second-placed Caen, who travel to Monaco on Wednesday for their game in hand.
