Here’s what they had to say
Gian Piero Gasperini, Atalanta coach: “We’ve shown that a team without a particular European pedigree can do well, with values like will-power, motivation, enthusiasm. I think people like this a lot. We have a big responsibility to not disappoint – not with the result but in terms of these values.Neymar is one of the best players in the world, so he would be a problem for any team who faced him. I think the best way to defend against him is to play well ourselves, with everyone focused.”
ThomasTuchel, PSG coach: “It is hard to play against Atalanta. It is a huge challenge, but there are always possibilities. It will be a tactical game, but also a mental game. In our latest training sessions we showed concentration, team spirit and good mood. We suffer together, but we also fight and play together.”
