Paris Saint-Germain must show they can ‘learn from the mistakes made’ in the Champions League ahead of facing in-form Manchester United, insists defender Dani Alves.
The Brazilian is an experienced player in Europe’s premier club competition having turned out for both Barcelona and Juventus previously.
A group stage defeat against Liverpool at Anfield exposed frailties in the French champions away from home but Alves feels PSG are a different proposition now to the side that collapsed on Merseyside in September.
‘I think we have to learn from the mistakes made during the competition and not reproduce the same mistakes,’ Alves told the club’s official website.
‘There are few games in the Champions League, so there is little room for error. We have to capitalise on what we do well because we have great ambitions in this competition.
‘We need to raise our level of performance, concentration, raise our level in duels, but I know we can do it, and we will do it. It will not be easy, of course, they will not give us presents. We will have to race each other to clinch the qualification.’
