The French tactician’s speech directly translates to: “Treat this as your ground. 

“Lately, you have been playing well. (…) But we have the quality to do everything well. Do what you always do – that’s all, tomorrow, think positively.

“Think not just about the return leg. The tie begins tomorrow [Wednesday], here. Go into tomorrow’s game treating it as though it is a single match, played here. We’re doing well, we are playing as a team. And we need to defend as one, that is the most important thing.

“It is going to be very important that we play as a team and defend because later on, the ball will go in for us”.
