PSG eliminated Bayern Munich, despite the defeat on Tuesday evening in the quarter-final second leg (0-1).
But the joy remains contained in the Argentine coach, Mauricio Pochettino, in a press conference.
Do you express relief despite the defeat?
Have you taken a step forward?
The team is in the semi-finals, nothing more than that.
I am very happy for it.
Does PSG become the favorite of the Champions League?
We eliminated Barça in the 8th, we took out Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
We deserved both qualifications.
I do not believe that PSG are the favorite.
Chelsea qualified too.
This Wednesday we will see Manchester City against Dortmund and Real Madrid against Liverpool.
Can you tell us about this suspenseful end of the match from the bench?
What did you change tactically between the two games?
I was calm on the sidelines, focused on the game. I was trying to help the team from off the field.
On the tactical level, we corrected things, especially on the defensive level.
