Like most of the fans who were present, Henrique experienced the meeting in a bar due to the closed door of the competition. He tells : “I was with my wife and my two children. My wife is like me. She loves PSG, and we cried! Besides, we were in the minority at the bar … Thank you Choupo, thank you all, thank you to PSG. They have not let go, and I say unto you, It is not over!
Euphoria and relief dominated in front of the facility. Feelings shared by Jean-Claude, one of the rare members of Ultras Collective who has made the journey: “We are happy, we are proud. Even though we fought, the qualification is there and that is what counts. We are relieved and happy to go to the semi-finals 25 years later. We thought the story started again, and luckily it was Choupo. . “
Decisive against the Italians, the attacker Choupo-Moting was obviously entitled to a warm welcome. Fans sang their name on several occasions, as many as Neymars. A smoke atom was even cracked, which gave a little more light to an already glorious evening.
And now ? “I think we’re going to win is right “, assures Jean-Claude. A euphoric speech that some like Anthony prefers to temper for fear of being disappointed on arrival. “It’s first and foremost the relief before half”, said the latter. Especially since Paris will not know the identity of its future opponent until Thursday night. It will be Atlético Madrid itself Leipzig.
