Manuel Neuer confident that Bayern Munich can turnaround PSG tie

Manuel Neuer is confident that Bayern Munich can overturn their Champions League deficit against PSG.

The holders face a tough task to make the semi-finals after suffering a 3-2 home defeat in last week's quarter-final first leg but Neuer is optimistic about the German giants turning the tie around as he feels the French side have problems defensively.

Neuer told Bundesliga.com: "We need to stay calm in our heads, but have fire in our heart. We want to approach the game the right way, with motivation, a good attitude of course, and the stability you need against such quick players. We’ll need to keep our cool, play attacking football and put them under pressure. They have problems at the back. If we create as many chances as we did in Munich, then we can do it."

Neuer's teammate Thomas Muller also feels that Bayern can pull off a turnaround but warns they will have to be more "precise" at both ends of the pitch.

The German forward said: "We’ll need to do a lot of things like we did in the first leg, and some things very differently. We need to be more precise, both in attack and in defence. Our attitude was fine, but we weren’t precise enough with our finishing and there were too many mistakes at both ends of the pitch. We all need to sharpen our senses, be fully focussed and be on our game, whether it’s a big tackle at the back to clear the ball, or improving on our poor chance conversion from the first leg. "
