Parisse and co come into the game in good form, having seen off city rivals Racing Metro at the Stade de France on Sunday, and despite a quick turnaround, Parisse feels the team are in good shape.
He said: “It was a very tiring game [against Racing]. From a personal point of view I was quite tired, and cramping up in the closing minutes.
“We’ve focused on recovery and I’m sure I’ll be physically fresh. There are also a lot of players who will start at Perpignan who were not involved against Racing.
“The squad has had a lot of turnover in the last few weeks so there won’t be any problems in terms of physical freshness. And it’s a European semi-final, it’s the only competition we’ve got left to play for. We’ll forget our tiredness.
“We know Aimé-Giral, it’s always great for the players. We know the context and it’s part of the game. It’s great to go to a stadium like that. To be whistled at and booed, it’s what you enjoy, we’re playing a team and their fans.”
