Paris St Germain gear up to take on Galatasaray


(SOUNDBITE) (French) PARIS ST GERMAIN COACH THOMAS TUCHEL SAYING:, "I think it is more difficult now as we are not playing at home.

Galatasaray is playing at home and that is always an advantage.

That is why it is more difficult to play here and now, we have to restart.

It is no longer 3-0 (the score against Real Madrid) for us now." 2.


Germain trained in Istanbul on Monday (September 30) ahead of Tuesday's (October 1) game against Galatasaray.

Paris St Germain coach Thomas Tuchel said he has not decided who will play number nine with Edison Cavani sidelined, Neymar suspended and Kylian Mbappe not ready to play 90 minutes.

"For tomorrow, if Neymar is not here, if Cavani is not here, Mauro's (situation) is not certain, yes, we are missing number 9.

It means, yes, he (Mbappe) usually plays number 9 but as I said we want him to finish the game for us if he begins," Tuchel told a news conference.

Tuchel said Tuesday's game will be "more difficult" as Galatasaray has the advantage of playing at home.
