Jocelyn Prêcheur: 'Playing at the Parc is a privilege'

Paris Saint-Germain coach Jocelyn Prêcheur and striker Amalie Vangsgaard spoke to PSG TV ahead of their UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Häcken.


"We're highly motivated and determined. It's a very important match for us. We know we got a good result in the first leg, but there's still a serious job to do at the Parc des Princes on Thursday. We're determined to put in a good performance and qualify. We're not expecting a different or simpler game just because we won the first leg. It was a very physically intense match, with two teams playing to their strengths. We saw a real clash of styles, and it will be the same on Thursday, a very intense and tactically very tight game. We'll have to be very rigorous and tactically disciplined. We've analysed the areas where we can improve, and that's been our challenge over the last few days. Playing at the Parc is a privilege. It's a great way for the club to showcase its women's team, and it's a cult venue with a long history with Paris Saint-Germain, so it gives us even more motivation. The players always want to win, but they also want to play great football, especially when we play at the Parc des Princes."


"Everyone wants to play this match. We want to win and we're going to do everything we can to qualify. It's always special to play at the Parc des Princes - the fans are incredible and they create a great atmosphere. That always gives us more energy. It's going to be a physical battle and a tough match. They'll be fighting right to the end and they'll be giving it their all too. Above all, we need to get the game off to a good start."
