Speaking to RMC Sport following PSG’s 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the 2nd leg of their Round of 16 Champions’ League tie, the captain for the night, Marquinhos, reacted elatedly.
“The perfect night. With all the atmosphere that there was before the match, we had a good mentality on the pitch. We remained strong, we scored two goals required and we did not concede a goal. It was genuinely very good and we have to keep this mind for what comes next. We need to keep this mentality. Each time that we had our backs against the wall, we showed our values, that we had quality personalities to overcome it. We qualified, we are going to enjoy that and we must keep this spirit, this quality and this personality for what’s to come.”
On the supporters that cheered the team on from just outside the Parc des Princes;
We saw and heard them before the match, it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before, I have never known something like that. It is in moments of difficulty that we retain the values and passion for football. That is what football is, lovers and passion. That is why we are here. We play too for our passion, for our family and for those who are always with us.
