PSG, who have yet to win the prestigious Champions League, host Real on February 15 as they look to finally bag the 'Big Ears' trophy following the addition of Messi. 

The Belgium stopper is aware of the great players they boast, but insists football is more about a team rather than individuals. 

"PSG have great players like Messi, Mbappe, Neymar... but it's more than that. It's a complete block," he told Diario AS

"They have talent in all the lines, but today's football is more about a team than individuals because if you have fear, there can be complications."

He added: "It's true that a talented player can score a goal out of nothing, but one has to worry more about stopping their merits as a team."
