"We are in position to eliminate Arsenal for the first time in its history at Champions League group stage. We can qualify with two results, but will enter the field to win this game as we always do. Absences are not really important for a team like Arsenal, we also had absences when we won in London, this is something interesting only for the fans.
They feel better when they keep the ball, like us, we are always prepared mentally and physically for a hard fight. Da Costa and Botia are both included in match squad and will decide tomorrow who is going to be the starter, there are also central defenders Siovas and Vouros.
I don't believe that we won in London because Arsenal underestimate us, results come only after effort in the field. Maybe they will have an extra pressure, because they were rarely in such a position, but every game at this level is difficult. Everyone knew which teams were the favorites of the group after the draw, but we will keep beating the odds always with respect to our opponent.
We have the chance to qualify in front of our fans, that give us a little edge, is an honor that top-class referee Rizzoli was appointed to our match. It is very important for supporters and club's history, I promise to give our best", said the Portuguese manager.
