Atalanta coach Gasperini: Do we have advantage on PSG?

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini says they're looking ahead to their Champions League quarterfinal with PSG.

La Dea were outstanding for the 6-2 win over Brescia last night.

Gasperini said, “I know PSG are playing two Cup games in France before the Champions League. I don't know if it's better to have 13 Serie A games like us or two competitive matches plus some friendlies. We will see.

“It's like saying we play every three days and are therefore tired, something I don't believe at all. Similarly, I don't believe that PSG will be unprepared because they haven't played.

“I have not yet studied Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, but they are two of the best players in the world. There was a little excessive confidence when we picked Paris Saint-Germain, but we mustn't forget this is a remarkable team!

“When you face teams of this level, you can examine their strengths, their weaknesses, but you mustn't change your nature. What I remain certain of is that these games never end 0-0, so if you are to get a result, you have to score a goal."
