Emery Still Erring On The Side Of Caution, Despite Barcelona Thrashing

share on:

Paris Saint-Germain thrashed Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of their last-16 encounter, but Unai Emery is not letting it get to his head.

A Di Maria brace and goals from Draxler and Cavani, put PSG in charge of the tie at home in Parc des Princes.

And even though no team has overcome such a deficit in the knockout stages, Emery is still cautious of the return trip to Camp Nou.

“It is a great motivation to play against Barcelona, and a difficulty,” the Spaniard said in quotes reported by Marca. “The game leaves a good taste in the mouth, but you have to be careful because we have 90 minutes to play.

“We have overcome them and we have made a very complete game. We have to try to maintain the level of concentration because their game is very varied.

“I’m very cautious with the next game. We have to try to continue in the same way.”

It marked just Emery’s second win in 24 matches against Barca, but the former Sevilla and Valencia coach said his team as a whole could take the plaudits.

“When we win, we all win and when we lose, we all lose,” he said. “It was a great game, both individually and collectively.”

The return leg iat Camp Nou is on March 8.
