Argentinian front man keen to play alongside veteran midfielder.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi says he cannot wait to play alongside former England captain David Beckham in the Parisians’ Champions League clash with Valencia.
The Ligue 1 leaders travel to the Mestalla for the first leg of their last-16 encounter on Tuesday night, with the veteran midfield player in line for a possible start.
“I think that at this stage, regardless of whoever is favourite, one cannot make mistakes,” Lavezzi said in the pre-match press conference.
“You do things wrong and you’re out of the competition. Besides that, I think Valencia are a very good team that plays football well. And above all they have experience in a competition like the Champions League.”
Meanwhile, PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti said of the contest: “I don’t think we are the favourites. The tie is open because we will play against a team that are very organised with very good players, a team of quality.
“Both teams are in good form. Valencia have found their form and the required quality and organisation. The same goes for PSG. So, I think it will be a very open game.”
