ANTONIO CONTE'S WORDS

“Nothing is a given in this match, it’s the first game of the second round, we need to have the same determination that we had in the first games, the same concentration. We’re facing a team who are keen to get more points, that are playing at home, so we’ll need to be very focused. I’m always asking for signs of concreteness and I’m expecting the same again tomorrow."
