Filipe Luís told the official club website: “The team is physically perfect, in that regard, there is no other team that could overcome us.
“In all the years I’ve been here, this is the best physical shape I’ve seen the team in. All of the players are in a perfect age group. Mentally, we’re more than prepared to endure these two weeks we have left.
“We have no pressure, we have a beautiful responsibility.”
