"I think that Brøndby IF is a strong team, which managed to eliminate Herta Berlin. The draw could had been even worse, we will watch our opponents and see what we have to do in order to qualify. Panathinaikos have not advanced to the group stage for some time, but we are still a big club not afraid of any opponents. We respect all the other teams, but we will give our best in order to beat them.
The fans are currently happy, because we are performing well and won the first two games. Not many things have changed to our playing style, even if we do not have the same manager as in the last summer and have signed some new players. I think that we have many abilities as a team, we need some luck and will be ready for the upcoming matches.
We are facing the qualifiers with seriousness and concentration, that's why we managed to eliminate AIK Stockholm. I am running a lot during the game, I feel very well with experienced Cristian Ledesma by my side. He knows how to control the tempo, we already have a solid cooperation which will become even better. I think that things will go well for Panathinaikos", said the 28-year-old Portuguese at Sport FM radio station.
