“Maybe more was expected this year because they’re a very good team that competes very well.
“They’re a complete team that will come here to try to pick up points. We have to be ready, especially when it comes to their strengths: the second ball, crossing… We have to be switched on to these situations.
“The most important thing for us is to try to get back to second place, which is our goal. We climbed back up to third, tomorrow we’re playing at home and we want to get closer to second place and we’ll try to put in a good performance.”
