After, which marked me before the match is when we left the hotel, says Colin Dagba. All the supporters who took their shirts to the heart, and I said to myself ‘tonight, we will do it for them’. forced to do it to make them proud because they are there for us, they may have left work quickly to come and cheer us on. We all tore ourselves apart for them on the pitch. “

We saw it, even Kylian when we see the big race he did, Ney who came to close, Angel who came to help me. All the attackers defended for us. We all got out our guts on the pitch. It was seen and we all did it for the city, for the supporters. “

After eliminating two big historic clubs with FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the Parisians have all the cards in hand to continue their obstacle course but will also have to manage the end of the championship which promises to be very hotly contested:
“I think we have to use the Bayern game as a base to continue playing this kind of game, whether in Ligue 1 or the Coupe de France. We have to keep this level of concentration, this level of determination, everything to give to get all the possible victories, and to seek this title of champion. And I think that it is matches like that, which must be our reference. “
