Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach):
"We composed our starting line-up with one eye on the Barcelona game. Certain players needed some playing time and they got that this evening. On this level, everything went well. But we weren't counting on it being quite so hard to beat this Nantes side that were very aggressive in the opening 20 minutes and caused us a lot of problems. We're happy to have won, but we will need to improve to get a win against Barcelona. This evening was also the 1,000th victory for the club which is great, as is the fact that we are still undefeated."
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain attacker):
"I felt good out there tonight. Match after match, I'm getting better. I'm not yet 100% but if I continue like this I'll get back to my best. I always try to help my team as much as possible and this evening I did that with my two goals."
Marco Verratti (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder):
"The most important thing was to win this match to keep the pressure on for top spot. On a personal note, it was a great night for me because it was my 100th match. For a young player in a club like this, that's a great thing. I'm not yet 100%, but slowly I'm starting to feel better. We are now all waiting for the match against Barcelona. It will be a very important test for us."
Lucas (Paris Saint-Germain forward):
"It was a very difficult match, that we started badly. Nantes' opening goal woke us up and we did what we needed to do to win. I'm happy to have provided the assist for Zlatan's first goal. Now we need to relax and go looking for that first place in the group against Barcelona."
