It deserved a victory and outstanding performance, you can not win. without good protection and all the efforts of the team, and the fans have seen it, we have worked hard, and the result is wonderful. The intention with the changes is to play more offensive and not to suffer. Angel and Cavani were not good. It was needed, and I am also happy that Adrien has been playing and getting compensation for the Marquinhos fatigue. I choose 11 players who started, but it is important that we finish well with three other players who are always ready

When I was Juve, I did not believe that this team could be so strong and it is the first quality that goes ahead (…) I have little experience and it's important that I can talk to my teammates to help them with the words, and sometimes it's more important than stopping (…) At the end of the game, everyone was very happy. Because we've been lucky enough to at this stage, it would not be terrible, and here I think we have the right path to have a great season. "

Kylian Mbappé (PSG Forward): "We were able to answer, we managed to prove that we could put ourselves on this type of game level, we are very satisfied and we are about to complete our work in Belgrade." We could be men before men, do not worry about us, we are convinced of our strength, we are confident about our group, we knew that we should have done more, but we also knew that No one in Belgrade will win, this group will have to put the same desire and the same intensity, because it would be really catastrophic to play today a similar, rather than qualify at the bottom.
