He stated that they need 2 goals in the game to make it to the final of the competition and that is what they will try to achieve.

“Playing in a semi-final is very difficult,” the manager said. “A final is played in one match, the emotional load over the two matches is difficult to manage. They have the lead, we know that we will need to take risks and above all, to be courageous. It will be another great battle, a difficult one, but we will be ready.

“We need to find the balance between our possession and the counter-attacks, we are ready to suffer in certain moments of this match. We will need to be clinical, aggressive and we will need to perform for the whole 90 minutes. We need to score two goals to make it to the final, that’s what we will try to achieve.

“We have been trying to instil a philosophy here over the past four months. It’s a long process, but we beat Barça and Bayern. We are here because we deserve to be here, and Manchester City are too. After the World Cup, it’s the most prestigious competition. It’s a great challenge to want to win it. Winning the Champions League with Paris would be incredible, the players know what that would mean. We need to believe in ourselves and take on this challenge.”
