BORUSSIA DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, AND MIDFIELDER, ALEX WITSEL, ENTERING NEWS CONFERENCE / WITSEL 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) BORUSSIA DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, SAYING: (REFERRING TO STRIKER, ERLING HAALAND) "He has already done a great job even though he is only 19.

He is at Dortmund now, which is different to Salzburg, but he has already played in the Champions League with Salzburg as well and he didn't have a bad start.

So, now he is with us and he can do the same." 3.

WHITE FLASH 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) BORUSSIA DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, SAYING: "I think all the Paris Saint Germain players have great qualities.

They played against Real Madrid without him.

Neymar is, obviously, a very, very, very good player who can play with (Kylian) Mbappe, (Angel) Di Maria, etc.

As I said before, I can't name them all, but I can name at least 10, so they have huge attacking potential." 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (French) BORUSSIA DORTMUND MIDFIELDER, ALEX WITSEL, SAYING: "The atmosphere here is always great but this match will clearly be hard as well.

This helps us and encourages us.

I am sure the atmosphere tomorrow will be great as it is for most matches except that tomorrow, it's the Champions League which is special for us but also for our fans.

So I am sure the atmosphere will be great and that we will be able to play a great match as well." STORY: Paris St Germain have an abundance of talent and the potential absence of Brazilian Neymar does not make them less dangerous, Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said on Monday (February 17) ahead of their Champions League last 16 first leg on Tuesday (February 18).

Forward Neymar has been sidelined for weeks with a rib injury and he also missed their 4-4 draw in Ligue 1 against struggling Amiens on Saturday (February 15), along with several other key players who were rested.

"They have so many players with great qualities and they beat Real Madrid (in the group stage) even without Neymar," Favre told a news conference on Monday (February 17).

The French team beat Real 3-0 in Paris while drawing 2-2 in the second game in Spain.

Dortmund will have to be at their defensive best if they are to contain the French side's speed, just as they were in their 4-0 Bundesliga win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday (February 14).

The second leg is in Paris on March 11.
