I’m happy with the work that we’ve done.”

We’ve worked hard, from a tactical and physical point of view, so I have some good expectations, even if we have to wait and see what happens on the pitch.

Our margin of error for us smaller than for those ahead of us, but the willingness and passion for us is there.”
