Pochettino ahead of FCB duel: “We know how they play”

Last year’s finalist Paris Saint-Germain does not want to rest on his good starting position for the quarter-final second leg in the Champions League against defending champions FC Bayern Munich.

“Bavaria is currently the best team in the world and is still the favourite,” stressed manager Mauricio Pochettino, the chances of making progress are still 50:50 despite the 3-2 victory in Munich. “Both teams have an open path to victory.”

The French champion has been warned: PSG lost a 2-0 to Manchester United in the 1:3 second leg of the 2018/19 season. “We have great respect, but also trust in our strength,” Pochettino said before the second duel with the troubled Bavarians on Tuesday (21:00): “We know how they play. They will not change their philosophy. We try to resist this with our ideas. “
