Troyes v Paris Saint-Germain : Preview

Paris St Germain will devote all their energies to securing the Ligue 1 title after exiting the Champions League with their heads held high.

A 1-1 draw in Barcelona on Wednesday night put the capital club out on the away goals rule at the quarter-final stage, but coach Carlo Ancelotti believes that is a result his side can be proud of as they bow out unbeaten.

``The disappointment has passed and we have no regrets, because we have done everything we can,'' he said.

``We put in a good performance, even if we missed a great opportunity to qualify. We did not win, but we showed we can be competitive in Europe and that was our goal.

``It was even a surprise for me to see a team with so much courage and character.''

From the grand stage of the Nou Camp, PSG now head to the less glamorous surrounds of the Stade de l'Aube and a match against Ligue 1's basement side Troyes.

Ancelotti is adamant his side will be taking nothing for granted, and treating the match with the same professional approach as they took to Catalonia.

``We will be focused on tomorrow's game, a tough game for us,'' he said. ``As we approach the end of the season all matches are now important to climb up the final steps to the title.

``After 18 years, we can again win the league, the end of the season is coming into focus and it is not difficult to find motivation.''

If Troyes, six points adrift of safety in 20th position, needed some motivation, the arrival of PSG will provide it.

``For games like this, the stadium will be full, which is not often the case in Ligue 2,'' said defender Florian Jarjat.

``It's what makes Ligue 1 extraordinary. We want to continue to play in these games, we all want to stay in Ligue 1.''

A 1-0 loss to fellow strugglers Nancy last time out has only made Troyes' task more difficult, but Jarjat is still thinking positively.

``Anything is possible,'' he said. ``We need to finish the season is the best possible form to give something back to our fans.''

Troyes will be without Jean-Christophe Bahebeck through suspension but PSG have suffered a bigger loss with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic also banned.
