CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTERFINALS:
PSG 2-2 Barcelona
Barca assistant manager Jordi Roura: “It’s a good result”
“we’re sad, we had the game won despite the adversities”
“We’re going to approach the return leg like we always do, we have to try to score to make the match more difficult for them”. “There were some questionable calls, but the result is good. I’m sure these decisions did not benefit us,” said Roura, who went on to say that “we have to move forward and put these decisions aside.”
“PSG didn’t surprise me. We knew about their potential going into the match, they are physical and fast. We knew it was going to be a difficult match.”
“We’ll find out how serious the injuries are, I think that’s the most important thing. Messi has a small issue with his hamstring and we don’t know how severe it is and Mascherano sustained a MCL tear in his right knee.
PSG Midfielder David Beckham:
“In the first half, especially in the first 10 minutes, we had a few very good chances and if we’d have put one of those away it might have been different,”
“Then obviously they got their goal, then it was an uphill battle, but I think we deserved the draw tonight.
“It’s better than it was at 2-1. We go there, it’s going to be difficult but there’s no reason we can’t go there and get a result.”
“I was obviously very happy (to start). The manager (Carlo Ancelotti) has always shown a lot of confidence in me, especially in big moments, and tonight was a big moment for the club and I was happy to start.
“I feel pretty much the same (as at Milan), it was only three years ago. I’m enjoying being part of these nights again, they’re very special.”
