Hakimi: 'We're looking to turn it around'

Achraf Hakimi, who missed the first leg due to suspension, spoke yesterday about how his team has prepared for today's match: "My first instinct after the first leg was to push the group and help the team prepare for the return leg. I think we played a good game even if we didn't manage to win it. We talked to each other and motivated each other. We've worked hard and stayed united. Tomorrow, it's time to give it everything we've got and go for the win.

"We're coming here with a lot of drive. We're looking to turn it around and bring victory back to Paris. We're highly motivated and we're really looking forward to tomorrow's game. We want to bring home the win for the fans."

Speaking yesterday, Pedri acknowledged the threat that Paris Saint-Germain poses: "Paris will come tomorrow with everything at us. We need to approach this game forgetting the result from the first leg. We need to be more careful tomorrow. The comeback in Paris was great, but we don’t want to be in a position like this again.

"It's the most important match I've had so far, along with the European Championship semi-final. We are two very equal teams, who want to play in a similar way. It will be a nice match for the spectator."

Xavi: Montjuïc has to be a pressure cooker

Speaking yesterday, Xavi called on Barcelona's fans to help his side triumph: "We are playing at home and Montjuïc has to be a big night venue. It will have to be a boiling-point atmosphere.

"We need the fans because there will be tricky moments and PSG will make us work hard and so at this time we have to be united. It's not the Camp Nou, but let's hope it looks a lot like it."

Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys

Opened in 1929, the stadium formerly known as the Estadi de Montjuïc was renovated in the late 1980s ahead of the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. It has a capacity of between 50,000 and 55,000, roughly half that of the Camp Nou, whose ongoing renovations are the cause for Barcelona's temporary relocation here.

Whether those renovations are finished on time and on budget remains to be seen, as our Barcelona reporter Laia Cervelló Herrero detailed last month...
