Itaian manager of Panathinaikos Andrea Stramaccioni commented on his team's Europa League draw against Brøndby IF at the official website of the club.
"Brøndby IF is a strong opponent. They managed to eliminate Herta Berlin, a german team, with excellent performance at the home game. Since we were among the best teams of the draw, we were expecting a slightly weaker opponent, so the draw was not so good for Panathinaikos.
However, what matters the most is that we are currently in good form, we will work hard and be ready to face Brøndby IF when the time for the first match comes", said the 40-year-old former manager of Inter and Udinese Calcio.
