UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals leg 1:

Paris Saint-germain 1-3 FC Barcelona

Luis Enrique (FC Barcelona coach): 

“We have seen everything in football and our target is to win the return match and steer clear of any problems … We played a spectacular game in attack and defence. We were very aware of what we had to do in all phases of the game and created danger, were solid in defence and all-round it was a very complete performance.”

PSG will have their suspended players back for the return leg, so I’m sure it’ll be a difficult match. The tie is not decided. We shouldn’t fall into the trap of thinking it’s all over, because it isn’t”

“I would have preferred them not to have score and we weren’t all that lucky because the ball deflected off one of our players. 3-0 would have been the perfect result. Our strikers have the freedom to do what they think is best in attack. They are intelligent, top notch players”

“Luis Suárez scores like only a centre forward can score. But I would highlight all of the players today. When they play so well and with such intensity, it only reinforces our idea”

Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach):
“We were dominated in terms of the possession. When a team forces the other side to run, and forces them back, they have more chance of winning, especially when they have an attacking trio of that quality. Barcelona were very good, my players gave it everything, and we are very disappointed. We couldn’t do any better tonight. We will head to Barcelona with a team that includes several returning players, and wanting to show what we can do.”

Maxwell  (Paris Saint-Germain defender):
“Barça are a very well balanced side. We knew we wouldn’t have the ball, and we had a plan, but we weren’t able to follow it. We paid dearly for our mistakes. We never managed to defend compactly and when you leave so much space to a team like Barça, it’s very difficult… In the second leg, we will have some important players, but we have lost Thiago Silva. We will see how we can turn this around. We have to believe…”
