In an interview with L'Equipe, Umtiti said: "I wanted to be present in the group" even though he wasn't 100% ready to play in the first leg. "After, although my heart wanted to play, I knew I was not physically ready."

Ahead of the second leg he said: "A club like ours should impose themselves, qualify. We are calm. Now, as a collective, we are doing well. Although the Champions League is different to La Liga - it's not the same type of pressure - and we should always be at 200%."
