Parisian midfielder Leandro Paredes is certain his team will do the job against Bayern on Wednesday in the Champions League.
PSG are measured on Wednesday night at Bayern on the occasion of their Champions League quarter-final. The champions of France are facing a big challenge, and they do not really leave with the favors of the forecasts. But, despite this context, confidence is in the camp of Ile-de-France. Leandro Paredes, the team’s midfielder, assured him in an interview with the club website.
Suspended, the Argentine international will not participate in the first leg against the Munich. However, he has faith in his teammates: “The group is 100% ready. We have a lot of desire, to do well, to win. We are approaching this last part of the season with a lot of envy, and this meeting motivates us a lot. “
“Be ready to face the best”
Bayern are the best in Europe today. However, it takes more to intimidate Parisians. Faced with great adversity, they are rather ultra-motivated. “It’s the toughest competition. And to go to the final, and win it, you have to face the best. And that’s what is happening to us. We were in a difficult group, then we faced Barca, and now it’s Bayern. That’s how it is, you have to be ready to face all the teams ”, Paredes said.
In the league, Paris has already lost 8 times this season. This is a record since the beginning of the QSI era. Despite this statistic, the former Zénit player is certain that the team has progressed since the C1 final played last August. “I think we needed to improve mentally compared to last season. And I believe we made it, he assured. With the physical work that we do and the recovery little by little after a complicated start to the season, then yes we are better than last season. We have quality players, and we have the ambition to go far ”.
As for his absence in this match, Paredes tried to make good heart against bad luck : “It’s hard to live with, I won’t be able to be on the pitch to help my teammates. I knew I was under suspension when we were playing against Barcelona. I took this yellow card, it’s hard but it is so. But I have confidence in my teammates to get a good result there, and I hope to be available for the second leg. “
