The PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel, assured this Tuesday that he wants his team to be brave against Real Madrid in his Champions League debut. He also praised Karim Benzema who is in one of the best moments of his career.

"We are going to try and have the ball, it's our way of playing, being active. I don't want us to be passive and let Real Madrid have much of the ball. They are very strong and brave in the Champions League, which they have won many times," he indicated.

"I want us to be aggressive, for us to get the ball soon in search of solutions. It's going to be a difficult game, a great match. But it's the first one of the group, it's not the deciding game of the group. Therefore, I want us to be brave, for us to play to win, to spark the fans into life. That is the challenge and the goal," he added. 

The German paid tribute to Karim Benzema in his analysis of the game: "Benzema is one of the most underrated players in the world. he is a world class player. We don't fear him, but he's a top player. In addition, he's now a leader and it's difficult to defend him

Likewise, he spoke about of Keylor Navas, who will face his ex-side for the first time. "He was the Real Madrid goalkeeper for many seasons and has had lots of success. His quality is unquestionable," he added about the Costa Rican. "I'm delighted with him. He's very calm, always smiling," he continued in relation to the Costa Rican's character. 

Lastly, Tuchel analysed the role PSG want to carry out in the Champions League. "It's a challenge to do things better than last year. We were under a lot of pressure. The second match against Manchester United was how it was. But this is sport. And one of the things in sport is to try and get better every day," he concluded.
