Gabriel Jesus spoke ahead of the huge game Friday in the Champions League and spoke on a variety of topics.

Let’s dig in-

Gabriel on game in Feb.-

“I don’t think it is my best performance,” Jesus said. “It was a top game. I scored and helped the team and that’s why people say that.

“They played so good. It is so difficult to go there and play against them.

“We suffered in the first 15-20 minutes and after we played well. We started to play our football and after we came back and could have scored three.

“We played so good with the ball, but without the ball we played one of the best games I have seen since I came to play here.”

Gabriel on KDB-

“I think every game he can make three or four assists for us,” he said.

“This season we miss a lot of goals, if not Kevin would have 30 assists. He is so good.

“He has so much quality and he always looks to the strikers. It is so good playing with him.”

Gabriel on return leg-

“Real Madrid have a lot of top players and the second leg is going to be so difficult for both teams,” he added.

“Anything can happen. At home we can control he game, but we have to know they can beat us.

“We have to play good again and win the game again.”
