La Real: “I know this team well, it’s a very great team, high-quality players, a well-organized team, which presses well and will look us in the eye. They like to have the ball.
The atmosphere before the C1: “We know that it is an important match for us but the atmosphere remains the same, we try to stay calm because we know that we are working well. We have a lot of desire in this competition and we want to do well. (…) We are not stressed, we just have a lot of enthusiasm. The important thing is to be ready. We will have to give everything, but like in all the other matches. To win, you have to play better than the opponent and be focused for 90 minutes.”

Coach turnover: “We have a very large squad and the coach can rotate, that means we are all very invested. You always have to give your all every day otherwise another player will play in your place. I played in the last matches, I hope that will continue.”
Kylian Mbappé: “He trained yesterday, today he is in good shape and I am sure he will play a great match tomorrow.”
His positioning in front of the defense: “I like it. I've played like that a lot before. If I move forward, I can go to the surface and finish the actions. In other positions, you have to be more attentive to the opponent's counterattack. When you come out, you have to be good. It's different."
Warren Zaire-Emery: “For us, the players, there is no surprise: we saw that he has enormous potential by working with him. And he’s showing it on the field this season. We don't realize his age on the pitch, he's an exceptional player. He has a great future at PSG and in the French team.”
Progress since the end of the year: “It’s normal, right? A new coach arrives with his idea of the game and we have to apply it on the pitch, so there is a period of adaptation. There were new players too. But we have good momentum now and this will be an opportunity to demonstrate it in the Champions League.”
An obligation to win the C1: “What happens outside, we cannot control it, but within the club, we are very calm. We are excited to still be in the running. We work to progress. We don't feel obliged to win the Champions League but we want to, like the other teams. But no, no pressure or obligation.”
The future of Mbappé: “We are focused on the C1. As far as Kylian is concerned, it's up to him to decide. But in any case, we don’t talk about it, we talk about football, and the topic of the moment is tomorrow’s match (Wednesday).”
