Munich (AP) - Joshua Kimmich not only sees the defending champion's leading players in the defending champion's duty to catch up in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain.

“Every player has to become a leader in this game, everyone has to show a mentality and be absolutely convinced.

And then we have to strike if the chance is there! ”Said the 26-year-old national soccer player in an interview on the club's website with a view to the quarter-final second leg on Tuesday evening.

Bayern lost the first leg 2-3.

Kimmich's conviction that we can still make it to the semi-finals against Borussia Dortmund or Manchester City is based on this, “because we are the better team”.

Unfortunately, the result did not match the performance in the first game in Munich, he said: "But I'm still convinced that we can turn it around in the second leg."

In addition to the mentality, efficiency will be important, said Kimmich.

Bayern must score at least two goals in the Prinzenpark.

In the first leg, the weakened team of coach Hansi Flick without the injured striker Robert Lewandowski and the also missing Serge Gnabry missed a number of chances.

Both attackers will also fail in Paris.
