“We are not stupid, Bayern is not an easy team, it is the reigning European champion. But there is no need to have an inferiority complex. We will go to Munich with respect, but with the objective of qualifying for the semi-finals. (…) I have a good example. With Tottenham, in the quarter-final against Manchester City in 2019, Harry Kane was injured in the first half of the first leg. We play almost an hour without him and the second leg without him, our most essential striker, like (Robert) Lewandowski for Bayern. And we qualified.

The club from the French capital will have to do without Italian midfielder Marco Verratti, positive for Covid-19 and also forfeit the match against LOSC, this Saturday, at. Argentina’s Leandro Paredes will also be absent against Bayern, due to suspension. Danilo Pereira and Layvin Kurzawa are meanwhile uncertain.
