SOT, Thomas Tuchel, Paris Saint-Germain manager (French): "I want us to remain always active and play aggressively, fast and take the ball to find solutions. It is a difficult match but also a great one between us and Real Madrid. It is also the first match in the group. But it's not the game that decides the entire competition. That's why, I want to play with courage, to play to win and give energy to our supporters. That's the challenge and also the purpose."

SOT, Marco Verratti, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder (French): "Mauro Icardi is with us since August 30. Surely, he needs more time to get to know everyone, but he is a player with whom it is easy to play. He is an area player, a player that when he touches the ball he can score at any moment. He is a player who helps us a lot because he is an area [player] who is also agile with his feet. We can give him the ball and bring up the team. He knows how to play with team-mates. We are happy. Surely, we have to wait a bit to see the real Icardi because he has been out for a long time, but he is a really magnificent player because he has the sense of a goal that it is difficult to find in other strikers."

It's in me and that I can not change it and as long as I play football I will try to win."
