Portugal’s Quinta do Lago resort has revealed the leading role it played in Paris St-Germain’s last-gasp Champions League 2-1 win against Atalanta after the French champions finalised their preparations for the game at the top Algarve venue.

Injury-time goals from Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting helped PSG to complete one of the most dramatic Champions League comebacks in recent years to book their place in the last four.

Boss Thomas Tuchel spent three days putting his star-studded squad through their paces during the intensive training camp at Quinta do Lago as they made full use of the facilities at the resort’s performance centre, The Campus.

The French side enjoyed exclusive use of the resort’s football pitches, high-performance gym and recovery areas during the warm-weather training break, and their visit paid full dividends as they came from behind to stun Atalanta in stoppage time.

PSG is the latest high-profile name from the world of football to head to Quinta do Lago to take advantage of extensive sports and lifestyle facilities that have made the resort Europe’s number one destination for elite performance training.

The likes of 2018 FIFA World Cup runners-up Croatia, the Republic of Ireland, Beijing Guam, Burnley, Rangers, Wolfsburg and Olympique Marseille have all staged warm-weather training camps at the resort since The Campus opened two years ago.
