“This is a club that has played in European competitions for so long and it is now up to us to go as far as possible in this current competition.
“If you look at the recent home game against Rangers, the atmosphere that night was the best I’ve ever had in my life and hopefully that’s the type of atmosphere we’ll feel that night. evening.
“When you come out of that noise and support, it’s such an incentive for us to do well. thought so.
