We know what an advantage it is. If there is a team that can turn it around, it is these great teams, as well as Barcelona or Bayern. They know these competitions and they know how to play them ”.
We should not think too much about the advantage we have. We know what an advantage it is ”

I had the misfortune to find myself against the French team. It does football very well in good times and bad and I’m glad.
