Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz says he has no fear for whatever opposition that pops up against his team in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
PSG Wednesday night booked their place in the last eight of the competition for the fourth season in a row after completing a double over the Blues with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge; thus sealing a 4-2 aggregate triumph.
However, they have been knocked out in the quarter-finals in each of the last three campaigns, and Luiz insists that they will not be getting ahead of themselves this season.
“It was a difficult game for us. [Chelsea] played very well, especially in the first half, but we never change our philosophy to play football. We like to play with the ball, with possession to try to create some gaps to score, and I’m very happy for our game,” the former Chelsea man told BT Sport.
“I think it was a collective victory because everybody knows to play here against Chelsea is always difficult. Everybody had the experience to keep calm because they always put the pressure on here.
“We try our best every single match. We are ready to play against anybody. But we keep our feet on the floor with humility, working hard and try to make the best plan to qualify for the semi-final.”
Real Madrid, Benfica and Wolfsburg are the other teams already through to the quarter finals of this season’s UEFA Champions League.
