Cape Town - Paris
Saint-Germain forward Julian Draxler says the last-16 Champions League
tie with Barcelona is not over because of the threat Lionel Messi, Luis
Suarez and Neymar possess.
PSG romped to a surprise 4-0 victory in the first-leg at the Parc des
Princes, with Draxler and Edison Cavani scoring a goal a piece while
in-form winger Angel Di Maria grabbed a brace.
Despite a commanding lead going into Wednesday's return-leg fixture
at the iconic Camp Nou Stadium, the Germany international remains well
aware that the star attacking trio hold the potential to overturn the
"If you play Barcelona in the Champions League, it's a special night [already]," Draxler told ESPN ahead of the tie.
"For me, it's not that difficult [to play against the trio] because
I'm attacking. I don't want to be defending against them but I think we
showed in the first leg that we have the quality to stop them.
"Of course it's not easy at the Camp Nou, and it's maybe the best
attack in the world. They can do everything and we're prepared.
"If the attackers don't receive the ball, they can't score. It's not
that easy because you can't stop a team like Barcelona for 180
minutes... so it will be sure that they'll have opportunities to score,
you can't stop them forever.
"But we'll try to find our space on the pitch and if we score, we have a good chance to go through," he added.
"We shouldn't be too comfortable because there were other teams that
have lost 5-0 in Camp Nou. I think it's a special stadium, [where]
there's already been special nights."
Kick off is at 21:45.
