Paris Saint-Germain coach, Unai Emery announced that he is confident that his side can get the better of Real Madrid as he looked ahead to next month’s Champions League super clash showdown.
Unai Emery said
It is a chance for us to show that we are at the same level as them, that we can beat the best teams.
Emery also dismissed opinions that defeat to the defending champions, Real Madrid, would generate negative sentiments for a club that invested huge sum in Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves in the hope of winning the Champions League. He maintained that the his side is driven by the memory of what happened at the same stage of the competition last season, when they lost 6-1 away to Barcelona to go out having won 4-0 at home in the first leg in the French capital.
He added that
We can learn a lot of things from that tie,” Emery said. “I think after that tie, and after the extra step PSG have taken, we will see teams, Uefa, referees have more respect for us, and I think we are now better prepared.
