Chelsea 2-2 PSG (3-3 on aggregate – PSG qualifies). Reaction for the winning side

Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach)

“The players produced an extraordinary match, from start to finish. I enjoyed looking at the statistics. We had as much possession as them, made more passes and had more corners than Chelsea. We were ruthlessly efficient. It’s a great evening for all those that love this club. It’s a great joy. We received a real blow when Zlatan was sent off in the 31stminute. But I felt that the players weren’t about to panic. When a club qualifies like that, it’s that everyone played well. There will be more great matches to come. We are very happy.”

David Luiz (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
“I’m so happy. It was really hard to lose one of our players so early in the match. We showed great character and we kept playing football. We always believed. The supporters were incredible, their support was crucial for us, for Paris Saint-Germain. I’m just so happy!”

Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
“That’s what the Champions League is all about! We came here with the desire to win. We didn’t win, but we got the result and the away goals rule sees us through. Even with ten men we played really well. We gave it the absolute maximum. I am very proud. It wasn’t easy, but we really played very well. We knew that if we deserved it, we would go through.”

Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
“Congratulations to the whole team! We produced a fantastic match today and defended very well. We conceded two goals, but our mental strength got us home. I think we have quality players that can hurt any team in Europe when we play like that. If we keep playing like that, we can go all the way. The aim is to win the Champions League. It was an incredible game. I gave a penalty away to Chelsea and I thought a lot about it afterwards. I changed my mentality. The goal at the end was incredible for me, for the whole club. We have to continue like this. It was just an amazing match.”
