Thiago Silva says Paris Saint-Germain cannot afford to underestimate Valencia ahead of the second leg of their Champions League tie.

The Parisiens recorded a 2-1 away win in the first leg, but Silva believes the round-of-16 encounter is not over just yet as Valencia cannot be taken lightly.

He singled out Roberto Soldado as the La Liga side’s main attacking threat for the clash on Wednesday in Paris.

“I like the Spanish Liga a lot, so I follow his matches a lot. He has tonnes of qualities. He can be a threat but he’s not the only one – the entire Valencia team can be a danger,” the defender said.

“We’ve been through some difficult moments in the past few weeks, and although I was out I have obviously experienced losses in my career.

“The expectations here are very high, but there’s always a lot of pressure in football. The Champions League is magic, in that it helps you to focus 100 percent, which may not always be the case in the league. I’m ready and the team is too. Our goal is to qualify.”
