Matuidi: PSG as strong as anyone

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi believes his team have the same level of quality as Barcelona and aren’t afraid of any other sides.

The French international will be part of the starting line-up for the Parisians as they seek to progress to the quarter finals at the Camp Nou after a convincing 4-0 first leg victory.

"We want to come and play a good game," Matuidi told his pre-game press conference.

"It's a pleasure to play in this fantastic stadium, we know that, and we're aware that we have a great team in front of us.

"However, we are focused on our own game and what we are capable of producing.

“Messi? We all know of his quality, it's difficult to have a plan against him but we are also capable of putting Barcelona in a difficult situation.

“We have similar philosophies and both teams are very talented, but they have to score in order to qualify so that’s our advantage.”
