A hard-fought victory. This Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes, PSG won with difficulty against Nantes (2-1), thanks in particular to a goal from Randal Kolo Muani, former Canary. Four days before the trip to Dortmund, decisive for qualification for the round of 8 of the Champions League, Paris have not lost anyone, even have recovered Marquinhos and Warren Zaire-Emery. Luis Enrique was in a press conference after this 8th win in a row in Ligue 1.

Is it a good rehearsal before the Champions League?

LUIS ENRIQUE. It seems to me, going into Wednesday's game, a great game, that we were good enough to win. It was tight. Nantes defended well, closed down our chances well. This match strengthens our path in Ligue 1 and serves as preparation for the Champions League.

"Our lives are at stake in Dortmund," said Randal Kolo Muani. Do you agree?

Football is pretty. To speak of life and death in this way, we will have to wait. It's a great match like a round of 8. We depend on ourselves. If we win, we won't have to turn on the TV to find out what happened in the other game.

What was the idea of installing Kylian Mbappé in the middle?

No. He didn't play in the middle but everywhere and as usual. He has the freedom to go in the middle, on the flanks, to play between the lines. Just like in the other games. He has to respond to certain defensive duties as well, but he has total freedom in attack. His role is the same as in the other matches: li-ber-ty. It's the same role for Kylian Mbappé in every game. I repeat this because it is not true that he is in the middle.

How did you judge the attacking animation without Ousmane Dembélé?

He can't play on Wednesday. I wanted to see other synergies existing with the players present. I wanted to see Bradley Barcola, I wanted to see Marquinhos as well. Some may have played more than expected. There are certain objectives that can be met. But Ousmane Dembélé is unique, that's for sure.

What do you think of Bradley Barcola's performance?

It's a very clear bet when you're looking for such a young player, who belongs to the U23 selection. We like him a lot, he already has a lot of minutes with us. We like to give confidence to young people by giving them playing time. He was superb. He was the most decisive player in one-on-ones, he had a very important game and scored an exceptional goal. I'm very happy for him. But this is nothing new.
