PSG is gearing up for a crucial match on Tuesday, with hopes of advancing to the final.

At his press conference, coach Luis Enrique emphasized the significance of resilience and preparation. "Facing challenges is part of life," he remarked. "We must be prepared for everything, even if things go wrong. The goal is not just to win by two goals; it's about winning overall."

Luis Enrique spoke about the team's approach: "We are approaching this process in a positive way and trying to improve the team. Our very clear goal is to qualify for the final. For that, we must be better than Dortmund."

When a French journalist asked about the consequences of not meeting this objective, Luis Enrique responded light-heartedly, "That's a very Spanish question. Then life goes on. The sun is shining, the weather in Paris is good. We will compliment the opponent and have a clear goal for next season."

Prior to Luis Enrique's appearance, PSG chairman Nasser El-Khelaïfi also spoke, underlining the importance of the upcoming semi-final: "This is the most important match since I've been with PSG. Tomorrow, we represent PSG, Paris, but also France and all our supporters around the world."

El-Khelaïfi further hinted at future enhancements to the Parc des Princes, aiming to boost the stadium atmosphere. "If it were possible, I would remove all the seats from the stadium so that the atmosphere is unmatched. Even my own seat. We have built something for the future and we are proud of it," he said, outlining the ambitions and plans that PSG holds not just for the immediate match, but for the long-term future of the club.
