RB Leipzig v Paris Saint-Germain: What has been said?

Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann: “The players really have the will to win, we are hungry and I can see that in their faces.

“We were great against Atleti and now we have a chance against Paris. We want to take the next step and are ready for that.

“You can’t foresee what Neymar and Mbappe could do, they’re top players. We need to defend them as a team.

“It’ll be difficult, but we need to make them work and put them under pressure.

“We have to avoid losing the ball, because PSG are very strong on the counter-attack, but we’ll try to take the game by the scruff of the neck.”

PSG Coach Thomas Tuchel: “We are living in the moment. We deserve to be here because we have had an extraordinary season.

“We are absolutely ready, the hunger is there, but this is not a historic moment, it is a semi-final and we are here to make the most of all the hard work we have put in and to win it.”

On Neymar, Tuchel added: “Since I arrived he has always been a leader. A different leader, not as everyone understands him, but with his qualities, his confidence, his courage in the field, his will to win. He loves competition and you need that to be a leader.

“We also created a group with players like Ander Herrera, Pablo Sarabia, Keylor Navas and others, guys who know very well how to live together, created a collective atmosphere. Perhaps this is the key to seeing Neymar on another level.”
