Key Quotes

Thiago Motta: "Yaya Toure is an excellent player. You don't need me to tell you that! He's shown what a great player he throughout his career,

"Particularly when he played at Barcelona and since then Manchester City. They have lots of top-level players though and what will count is what we can do a team. 

"We have to defend as a team and attack as a team. Regardless of whether Yaya is playing or not that won't change what we have to do as a team."

Pablo Zabaleta: “It’s going to be one of the biggest nights for the club. 2-2 was a great result for us, thinking that we have to play again at home on Tuesday.

“It will one of those nights that City fans have been waiting for for a long time and as usual we need their support.

“The fans being behind the team for the whole game will be really important for the team. The most important thing is to win that game and go to the semi-final.”

Laurent Blanc: “City played extremely well in Paris and have top quality players going forward. We need to be more solid at the back, close down spaces as well. If we leave them space, they really exploit it. We need to be compact and play our own game as well.

“We’ve analysed the first game and looked at the errors we’ve made. There was too wide a gap between players and opened too much space for City. When you think of the players they’ve got, they create a lot of chances.”


PSG: Verratti

City: Kompany, Sterling


PSG: Matuidi, David Luiz
