Some Paris Saint Germain players have met with hardcore fans of the club to discuss their upcoming second leg tie with Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes. The meeting is said to have hinged around providing a difficult atmosphere for the visiting side who are 3-1 up from the first leg.
Among the players who met the fans at their Camp des Loges training base were captain Thiago Silva, Dani Alves, Marquinhos and Kylian Mbappe.
Members of the Collectif Ultras Paris group told the players that the fans would ensure the stadium was occupied by hardcore fans who would make the stadium hostile for Real Madrid.
”We want the people of Madrid to feel what it is like to come to Paris,” Daily Mail quoted a supporter to have said.
”We invite everyone to come to the stadium early with their jersey and scarf and to put on a great choreography and to boost our players.”
In a video posted by PSG, players can be seen discussing the fixture with the ultras in depth before sharing high-fives and handshakes in a show of unity.
Real Madrid will play the Parisians at their home on March 6, 2018 in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a brace, and Marcelo ensured Adrien Rabiot’s opener was cancelled as they grabbed a vital 3-1 win.
