Thomas Tuchel who is Paris Saint-Germain coach said as quoted by club’s official site.
“It was a tough game, but we’d expected that. Congratulations to the team. This win is for our fans. They were at the airport when we left this morning. The team has worked hard and done it together.”

On the other hand, PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola added:
“As they say, you don’t play a Classique, you win it! We put in all the ingredients to win the game. We were solid and respected our game plan. That’s the most important thing. It’s never easy to play a Classique. We were focussed. The coach made choices, and it’s us to us to adapt.”

While PSG midfielder Julian Draxler stressed:
“Games here are always difficult, so we’re very happy to have won. This win is for our fans. It wasn’t easy, but at the end we’ve won again. Our unbeaten run against Marseille makes us, the club and our fans happy. Also, it means we’ve won an 11th successive league game, it’s incredible.”
