Olivier Echouafni: 'Keep our defensive solidity'

The Paris Saint-Germain coach wants his team to keep their mean streak with Montpellier their guests for this weekend's league game.

Coach, Montpellier are your opponents today...it's always a special game, isn't it?
"They're a direct rival. They've had a very good start to the season, the same as us. They're a team that changed a lot during the close season with quite a few new players, a new look...we'll be up against a well-organised side. But we're at home and we have to do the business."

How has the team been since the start of the season?
"We have started an unbeaten streak, and that's positive, of course. We have to keep that going, win matches, and also keep our defensive solidity. We don't concede goals and we're clinical up front, it's a very good thing."

Has the preparation for this game been good?
"Yes. We have to prepare well, because we know it'll be a tough team to play. But we're a quality side and we have a little more maturity now. The girls have improved in that area, and you saw that in our last game against Dijon when we had to up our game in the second half to turn the match in our favour."
