We are less than 24 hours away from Paris Saint-Germain’s match against Chelsea in the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League. For me it’s a very special moment. These are the type of events I dreamt of covering when I started shooting football. As a matter of fact when I first started I set the goal for myself to shoot Champions League within three years. And now three years and seven months later I will stand pitch side and breathe in the Champions League anthem which I love so much.
Today was a nice trial run ahead of tomorrow. I arrived at Parc Des Princes at 14:00. The stadium is about a ten to fifteen minute walk from my hotel. Once at the stadium I made my way to the press conference hall and got myself situated. The first press conference was with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the man who made my trip possible, and PSG coach Laurent Blanc. Afterwards a second press conference was held Cesar Azpilicueta and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho. After the second press conference we got a change to go into the stands and shoot some frames of the Chelsea players training.
