As the president of Bayern Munich expressed confidence ahead of their clash on March 8, PSG midfielder Danilo Pereira talked about the upcoming second leg of the Champions League round of 16.
Following their victory on February 14 at the Parc des Princes, Bayern Munich is determined to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in front of their home crowd at the Allianz Arena against Paris Saint-Germain. In an interview with Bild two days ago, the president of the German club, Herbert Hainer, left no room for doubt regarding his team’s victory in the upcoming match.
“The team showed against Union Berlin and also in Paris that it’s there when it counts the most. It will show it again in the return match. I am absolutely confident for Paris. When you see who comes off the bench, other clubs would lick their fingers for it. It’s another reason why I am full of confidence,” explained the 68-year-old executive. However, the reigning French champions aim to take advantage of their current form to pull off the perfect heist on Bavarian soil. And it is their midfielder Danilo Pereira who has taken charge of sending the message to the Bundesliga leaders.
Danilo Pereira promises that PSG “has changed, now we are ready”
Like Kylian Mbappé, who called for mobilization and revolt after the setback in the first leg, Danilo Pereira is determined to go to Munich in six days to make a big impact at the Allianz Arena against Bayern in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. Especially since overturning the goal conceded last February is not an insurmountable task if the Paris Saint-Germain team adopts the same mindset as during the trip to Marseille last weekend.
“Mentally, we know we weren’t there, but we’ve changed! Now, we’re ready physically and mentally, that’s what was missing. The group talked, not just among ourselves, but with the coach and all the staff. I think that moment has passed, because we talked all together, about what we need to do and the things we didn’t do well. If we lose, we’re out, if we win, we go through, that’s how we have to approach this match. We have to go to Munich with the mentality of giving everything, like in Marseille,” said the 31-year-old Portuguese international in an interview with AFP. The tone is set!
