The Portuguese manager claimed that "In such draws there is nothing easy as many important european clubs take part and everything can happen. We have to be prepared to play difficult matches and be ready to rise to the occasion with our opponents. We can't characterize any of the games as easy and we should enjoy our participation. We have to be careful, avoid mistakes and also defend Olympiacos with the best way. Everyone dreams of competing in Champions League. So do I. Especially in "Karaiskakis Stadium". Our fans we be our power. Our opponents know that and understand that they have to come and play in a "hot" atmosphere. We look forward to it"
