Those two goals at the end change. 5-0 was too much to pick up, 5-2. We have done it against Barcelona. It will be hard but we have to believe in it. It is football, hey”, remains Il Ninja hopeful. “We may in the second leg, not too much space in the back of the defense. Then we will certainly have a better result. With 3-0 we go through.
