Christophe Galtier spoke ahead of the match: "There's a lot of disappointment in the dressing room. Anger too. The players are tired and very disappointed. We all spoke together this morning. There was a lot of hope for us. Every year, only one team wins the Champions League. We must now project ourselves on our objective, which is to win Ligue 1″. "There were important absences in the double-header against Bayern. Mbappé did not start the first leg, Achraf was quickly diminished by injury. In the second leg, we suffered the absences of Kimpembe and Neymar. Two injuries to which must be added those of Marquinhos and Mukiele. It was an obsession for me that we arrived fit. We arrived weakened for the double-header. I don't have to try to convince Kylian Mbappé. Any player would have said the same thing after the elimination against Bayern. Kylian is a Paris Saint-Germain player, he shows it in every game and he has great determination to succeed and take the club as high as possible." "No, I have no doubts. There is no doubt that, these two great players, with an incredible track record, are familiar with this type of situation. They are players of a high level, who move quickly from one game to the next. Their contractual situation? They're used to this kind of moment. There is always a risk, but I told my players that PSG are the defending champions. If we win, it will be the first time a team has won 11 titles, something never seen before in France. We should not minimize the fact that we are champions of France. There are players who have an extraordinary record, others who have not yet tasted what it is to be champion of France. The title is not easy, to win it is not normal. We have to fight to the end to win Ligue 1. We are hit by a lot of injuries, but we must not minimize being champions. "I see what is happening abroad. Bayern, who logically eliminated us, don't win the Champions League every year. But every time they win the championship, it's a big party that they share with the fans and the club's employees. It must be the same for us. We have to stop trivializing the title. It's not easy to be champion of France.
