NEWS | 17/10/2016"We've got nothing to lose", insisted Miroslav Radovic.
Jacek Magiera and Miroslav Radovic took their places in the media room at the Bernabéu on the eve of the Champions League Matchday 3 group stage clash to preview the encounter (Tuesday, 8:45pm CEST). The Legia Warszawa coach explained that: "You can go about preparing the team to face Real Madrid in various different ways, but the main thing is to motivate the players. It's a game that you want to be involved in, few footballers get the chance to play at the Bernabéu and against a side like Real Madrid. It's a reward for our players".
"I'm happy that Legia Warszawa are getting to play on a stage like the Bernabéu and I hope that we, the Polish champions, can compete with Madrid. The players have nothing to lose tomorrow. We want to put in a good performance and prove that a Polish side is capable of playing good football. I want my players to feel happy to be playing in a game like this one".
Madrid as favourites
"I'm not worried about Real Madrid. They've got a very good side, full of big names and they know a thing or two about playing football. This game is a really big event for us and we want to do all we can to make life difficult for Real Madrid. Madrid are the favourites, but, as has been shown on many occasions, the underdogs can achieve good results. We've come here to play to the best of our ability and we'll see where it takes us".
Radovic: "We'll put in a brave performance"
"It's not every week that you get to face Real Madrid, but that doesn't mean that tomorrow we go out and wait for the opposition to do something, rather we must make sure we give our all. This game has to be an experience, we've got nothing to lose and a lot to gain. Every team has its weak points. We'll put in a brave and ambitious performance and we'll have to see if that's enough".
"There shouldn't be any issues with our fans. We know who were coming up against, we'll have a lot of our supporters at the Bernabéu and we're counting on their backing. I believe that everything will go as normal".
