Axel Witsel on Borussia Dortmund’s clash vs PSG: “We need to defend well together.”

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Axel Witsel discussed the importance of winning the ball back immediately against PSG on Tuesday night if they want to get a result, whilst calling on the support of the Yellow Wall. 

“It’s more than just a detail,” said Witsel. “Out fans make for a crazy atmosphere. In some games where we’re having difficulties, it helps up – and pushes us. I’m sure there’ll be a super atmosphere tomorrow and that will help us to produce a good performance.”

The Belgium international also discussed Borussia Dortmund’s gameplan against the French champions: “When we lost the ball [against Eintracht Frankfurt], we wanted it back immediately. We’ll need to do that tomorrow too. We can’t let them have too much space, we need to defend well together.”
