PSG won 2-0 for the first-leg of their round 16 clash.
Silvestre told Le Parisien: "It's the intelligence and versatility of the players that allowed (Thomas) Tuchel to do that. He did not throw them into the unknown. They have already changed systems in the past and they have always adapted very well.
"He has found solutions after the injuries of Neymar and especially (Edinson) Cavani and (Thomas) Meunier lately. This shows that there is strength of character and a bench of quality.
"The PSG squad is of a very high level. This will allow him to go far in the competition. They showed all their strength."
