Antoine Griezmann talked all things Barça before the team travel to Lisbon this Thursday to play against Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The French player stressed that "the team have worked very well tactically and are ready to play the game." Below we review the highlights of the interview.
"We are looking forward to it, we have worked well tactically and we are ready to play the game."
"We know it will be difficult, but we know what we have to do to qualify for the semifinals. It will be a very good match."
"We hope to take advantage of the quality we have. We are in a good moment and we can play a good game."
"We have to be together, up front and at the back, and try to have the ball as much as possible."
"Bayern are playing very well, they have a great striker, but we also have the tools to play a great game. We have to look at our strengths and try to qualify."
"They're a very physical team that's used to having the ball. We have to make life difficult for them and play our game."
"Bayern are not just Lewandowski. The wingers get forward a lot, Müller, Gnabry are also very good... Lewandowski scores a lot of goals but the danger comes from anywhere."
"It feels more like an international tournament with the national team."
"It's different, but it's good to be able to spend time with team-mates, talk about football, talk about life and enjoy working together to win."
"We have three games left to win the Champions League. We will have to all be together in the good times and bad."
"Every team has the potential to win a single match."
"On a physical level it's tiring due to the heat and the accumulation of matches, but the strangest thing is to play without our fans and their support."
"We see their messages on social media and this helps us through difficult times."
"On a personal level it was good for me to have a few days to be able to recover and play against Napoli."
"In the first minutes of the Napoli game I had no rhythm but little by little I felt better. The team really wanted to play a great game, and we are on the right track."
