"They're a very competitive team that plays with a very big atmosphere behind them; a bit like in Montpellier. They are a very physical, very compact team, which plays with many systems," Tuchel was quoted as per saying by Goal.com. PSG are coming fresh from a 5-0 win against Galatasaray in their last encounter and the opposition must vary off them. On the other hand, Saint Etienne last match was against Wolfsburg which they lost by 1-0.
