Xavi spoke ahead of the second leg against PSG, and he was asked if he would play differently from how FC Barcelona played against PSG in the first leg last week, which gave them a 3-2 win away at Paris. Xavi said, "Doing something different vs. PSG? No, I think we need to defend almost the same way. Let's see what PSG's system does, but we need to be a team. In attack, we need to access these spaces. I think we need to show our best level, and show character to qualify for the semi-finals."
