Here’s what the coaches had to say
Julian Nagelsmann, RB Leipzig coach: “We didn’t really play the kind of football we wanted to after the restart. The players really have the will to win, we are hungry and I can see that in their faces. We want to take the next step and are ready. You can’t foresee what Neymar and Mbappé could do, they’re top players. We will need to defend them as a team. It’ll be difficult but we need to make them work and put them under pressure. Football is interesting when both sides like to attack.”
Thomas Tuchel, PSG coach: “We are here because we deserve it. We played a great season and worked so hard, took every match seriously. We won’t talk about the past – only the present. We’re hungry for success, to succeed. We want to make the hard work we have put in pay off. [Leipzig] press high, they are courageous, a young, fast team – like Atalanta were. We have our style, they have theirs.”
