“I repeat it. We are ready,” Luis Enrique said, displaying confidence to advance to the semifinals.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will play its second match against Barcelona in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League in the 2023-24 season at the Luis Companis in the Estadi Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, at 4 a.m. on Saturday (Korea time). PSG lost 2-3 in the first match.

Although he lost the first match, he is full of confidence. French media outlet Foot Mercato reported on Wednesday, “We are confident that we can turn the situation around. We will achieve our feat of advancing to the semifinals against Barcelona tomorrow.”

PSG is somewhat at a disadvantage when it comes to advancing to the semifinals. It lost the first leg 2-3 and the second leg is an away game. Barcelona can advance to the semifinals if it only has a draw. On the other hand, it needs at least one goal ahead of PSG to be eliminated.

However, Enrique was never intimidated. “We are ready. All of our team members want to win. We will show a better performance tomorrow than the first leg. I am confident that we can turn the situation around,” he said. “PSG has never made it to a top tournament since losing the first leg. But tomorrow is the day. We can do it,” he vowed to win.

After the 2020-21 season, PSG will try again to advance to the semifinals. It lost to Manchester City that season and failed to advance to the finals. It faced Real Madrid and Bayern Munich for the next two seasons, eliminating them from the round of 16. If it turns the tables and advances to the semifinals, it will face the winner of the ATM-Dormund match. It is in a position to aim for the final.

PSG did not play a league game this weekend. There was enough time to prepare for the second leg. The players were rested as well. There is motivation as well. Everything was in place for the win. Now all that is left is to prove it on the field.
