Brighton midfielder Jakub Moder declared himself hopeful ahead of the upcoming return leg of the Europa League Round of 16 with Roma.

After going down 4-0 to the Giallorossi in the first leg, Moder told brightonandhovealbion.com that he believes his side can still advance to the next round.

 “It’s obviously going to be a very difficult night for us, especially after the 4-0 defeat in Rome. But we have to believe that we can score four goals. As Roma scored four goals, we can also score four goals. So we keep that belief and we go on Thursday and try to win 4-0.”

“We created chances [in the first leg]. Danny Welbeck had two chances, great saves from the Roma keeper, and we also could have defended a couple of goals [better].”

“So we just have to improve a couple of things and obviously we showed before that we can score many goals against big teams like Man United, Tottenham, Liverpool. So we can do it against Roma.”
