Speaking to RMC Sport, Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel reacted to his side’s 1st leg victory over PSG in the Champions’ League Round of 16 tonight.
“This was nearly perfect (as a performance). It is a shame that we conceded that goal with the slip that Dan (Zagadou) made. In the end, we had a super match, by being super well organised.
Without the ball, we were really very good, aggressive in the good sense of the word on Neymar and Mbappé, because they are players who can make the difference.
We needed to not give them too much space and we need to play with the ball and with the… you know what (smiles).
That is truly what we did, we played super well, we went on counter attacks on multiple occasions. In the match’s totality, we were much more dangerous than them, we did not give them much of a chance and it was nearly perfect.”
