"Attack is the best form of defense": Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino knows that tonight's game won't be the same as last month's, with more on the line and Real Madrid playing at their home stadium.

"Attack is the best form of defense": Pochettino

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino is expecting a different Real Madrid team ahead of the second leg of the Champions League game.

Both teams are dealing with some injuries, but it isn't just that which makes tonight's game different. "It is a final and for this reason it is going to require absolute concentration and, above all, adapting to the conditions that have changed in three weeks," said Pochettino.

PSG have won only one of their last eight Champions League away games against Spanish opponents. They were able to get the win last month, 1-0 in the opening leg of the Champion's League last-16 tie. Tonight, Pochettino says the key to defending against a team like Real Madrid is to attack.

The game kicks off at 3 p.m. ET. Follow it live right here on AS USA.
