At the end of the meeting, it was joy in the Parisian camp even if the players know that it will be necessary to achieve a new feat on the return.
Kylian Mbappé, PSG striker and man of the match at RMC Sport’s microphone:
“It’s a great collective performance above all, I benefited from everyone’s work. After that, we are only at half-time for a big confrontation. We suffered, but we suffered as a team, we don’t have to be ashamed of our performance. We were solid, and we knew how to hurt them on our highlights. We will attack the return with the same determination.
As I said in Barcelona, I like these kinds of matches. It hasn’t always smiled on me, but I’m not here to hide, I like to play these kinds of matches and be decisive. The coach wanted me to close the pass lines on Kimmich with Ney and take the depth to stretch Bayern’s block and make them run races because they don’t like it. It worked out well today.
The return ? To start, we have to play well in Strasbourg this weekend, and then we will have to attack with confidence, even if it remains a great team opposite. It’s the Champions League, there are only great teams. “
Colin Dagba, defender of PSG, at the microphone of RMC Sport:
“Coming to win here is always complicated, we were united even after the exit of Marquinhos, we went looking for the third goal, it shows the strength of the collective. The coach showed things that were wrong at half-time, it paid off in the second half with a good defensive block. Navas does us a lot of good, we also have to do the job. We will have to stay focused on the return, the collective will pay for the return match. “
Julian Draxler, PSG midfielder, at the microphone of RMC Sport:
“I think the result is very good for us, it’s not easy to win here. We suffered today but everyone ran, we saw the opposing quality. We are very happy, but it was only the first game so we will continue to work. I am happy to have played 90 minutes in my country, but the most important thing is the victory, I return to Paris with a smile.
The return ? It’s going to be very difficult again. Hot, it’s difficult to talk about it. We’re knocked out, we’re going to go back to Paris, analyze it all calmly, and prepare a plan. “
