Peseiro: We are familiar with the power of Shakhtar

Wednesday, December 7, 2016



Head coach of Braga shared in a traditional press conference his expectations of the upcoming meeting with the Pitmen

- Everything is in our hands, and that’s major thing. We are familiar with the power of Shakhtar, but our goal for tomorrow is winning. We want to win and advance to the next stage in the Europa League. We will also take advantage of our fans’ support. Again, it all depends on us, and this is more than enough for even greater motivation and confidence. Braga players should display some smart, organised and balanced performance. We need to operate decisively and effectively both offensively and defensively.

- Shakhtar have claimed five wins in five games, scoring 17 goals...
- We know about the opponents’ strength. Shakhtar is a team of the Champions League level. In the previous round against Konyaspor, the Ukrainians didn’t field their regular line-up, still claiming a 4-0 whitewash. This pints to the quality. But every meeting is a different story. What the teams showed in the previous meetings would mean nothing tomorrow. To defeat Shakhtar, we must play very well. I think we will fulfil everything.
