OL-PSG: The postmatch reactions
“There was room to win this match even though we struggled a lot in the second half. You have to highlight our mental state -- nobody gave up. There are a lot of good things to take away from this. We must put all the ingredients together to have an exceptional second half of the season. Intensity was the watchword of the coach. We play a style that takes a lot of energy. When we are at home, we have to win as many matches as possible."
“I don't know how to analyze this match. We played against a very good team. We were strong. We had opportunities to score the second goal, but so did PSG. A draw is deserved at the end of the day. We didn't keep enough of the ball. We played against well in the first half. We played differently tonight, playing a little but lower but staying compact. The team spirit was very good. The same effort will be needed in the next matches. Everyone had a good match."
“We played a good match, it's a shame. We gave our all. We have to keep this same state of mind. We are not in our proper place in the table. We know each other well, Lucas Paqueta and I. I'm glad he scored. We must continue like this. We worked a lot defensively. I am proud of the team today."
“We are disappointed with the result. We could have taken our chances better on some of the counterattacks. We knew they were going to have the ball. We wanted to be very aggressive. We know that in the matches against Paris, we have answered the call. The trouble is in not putting in the same effort in the other matches. It is up to us to assert our style in the future."
“There is a sense of frustration in the locker room. The players gave a lot. We were keen to win this match and we almost did it. Physically, we had players who had come back very soon before the match. We had the guts to play out from the back, as we did on the goal. It's not easy against Paris. We were daring. We had worked on that in training."

“We were solid. We needed to be reassured. PSG created a lot of chances, it's not easy. I thought we were going to score a second goal that would have allowed us to breathe. Our state of mind is there. We have to do it in all of our matches. We still hope to play better."
