Reaction to the draw

After the draw, Mr. Mestre described PSG as "an old friend, a team that will not be easy, but history is on our side."

"In the Champions League there are no easy teams," he said. "Furthermore, their coach knows the Spanish League really well."

Former Barça striker Patrick Kluivert is the current Director of Football at PSG and, speaking to Barça TV before the draw, he said, "no team ever wants Barça. Nevertheless, if you want to win the Champions League it's better to meet them now rather than later on in the competition."
