The first game is in bruges on wednesday. how are the squad approaching the match?
"It's the Champions League, there are only tough games. Bruges are too, they're a good footballing side. We are going to prepare well, analyse their team, because they're not here by chance. All the teams in the competition deserve to be there. We'll need to be at our best, just like in every game."
