Di Maria speaks ahead of Champions League clash with Man City: "We have the players capable of

Di Maria wants PSG to knock the Citizens out of the UCL tomorrow.

PSG attacker Angel Di Maria is keen on sealing a spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League and has called on the Ligue 1 champions to play with style. Laurent Blanc's side played out a 2-2 draw in the quarter-final first leg at the Parc des Princes, and are hoping to finish off City at the Etihad on Tuesday night, with Di Maria saying they will "hit Manchester City were it hurts". “We need to play the way we know how: control the ball, attack and take the chances that come our way," the former Real Madrid and Man United man said as the Daily Mirror reported.

"That’s how we’ve won our matches up until this point. It’s our style. Our opponents use up a lot of energy chasing the ball and then we hit them where it hurts. “The first match is always tough because the two teams don’t know each other, you have to work each other out. The second leg will be different. We need to try to play better. “It’s a shame to have conceded those two goals at the Parc, which does make it more difficult to try to qualify. It won’t be easy to win in Manchester, but we have the players capable of scoring and getting the result we need. “Obviously it won’t be easy, because Manchester City are a great side, but we have to do our best to win this match.” Regarding the Etihad stadium, the Argentine said: “There is always a great atmosphere inside that ground. It’s nice for a player to play in front of that kind of atmosphere. "The fans support their side throughout the match, yes, but it will also have a positive effect on us too. Our fans will also be there so we can count on them to cheer us on.”
