We won this first leg but we have to improve things.

The objective is to win, against one of the best teams in Europe, or the best. ”

How to approach this match

: “We know this team, the way they play, and I don't think they will change the way they play.

In the same way, we will try to impose our ideas.

Afterwards, football is a game. We will see how it goes in terms of control, who will impose his ideas on the other.

In any case, we will try to play with our ideas. ”

We will make a decision tomorrow (Tuesday).

He could be part of the group, not to start. ”

PSG stronger outside

 : "It's difficult to explain ... We have to find the causes.

It might be something that we will have to analyze at the end of the season.

But we are already hoping that starting tomorrow, we will be able to reverse this situation and clinch victory. ”

Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi (Covid-19)

: “We still have to wait and analyze.

Marco, it might be hard to get started… For Alessandro, we'll see tomorrow. ”  

More possession with Verratti or Leo Paredes

: “It's not a question of names.

In the round of 16 second leg against Barcelona, ​​we struggled to keep the ball also when there were Marco and Leo.

It's a question of collective attitude, of approach to the match.

It is important to defend and keep the ball, but also to hurt the opponent.

This is our challenge for tomorrow in order to achieve a good performance after our victory in the first leg. ”

"It is in difficult times that we will have to show strength, solidarity and solidity"

Don't panic

: “I was talking about a collective attitude just now.

We will need attitude and aptitude tomorrow.

Barça is a thing of the past.

Bayern is different, they are the best team in the world.

They will put us in difficulty, that's for sure.

It is in these times of difficulty that we will have to show strength, solidarity and solidity. ”

A qualification in the form of an exploit

: "If it bothers me that the media talk about an exploit to evoke a possible qualification?"

No, it does not disturb me.

Bayern are the defending champions, they have won six trophies in a year and the outgoing champion is necessarily the favorite.

We aim to win it.

For the club, reaching the semi-finals would be important. "

Moise Kean and Mauro Icardi

: “Moise will be in the group.

Once again, we have not decided on the starting XI.

Mauro will not be part of the group. ”

Presnel Kimpembe

: “He is an important player, trained at the club and who knows the values, the identity of the club.

He has great qualities and he is one of the important players in the team. ”
