Porto manager Nuno Espirito Santo: “We must play our game.”

Porto manager Nuno Espirito Santo spoke ahead of his team’s match against Roma, here are his words:

What does Porto need to do tomorrow to qualify?
Porto have already shown in the this start of the season to never give up, it’s a team. The goal is to reach the group stage, tomorrow we will do everything to reach this and we will compete on the field.

In the first leg, Porto missed several occasions, what do you hope for tomorrow?
We should definitely be more concrete, but not only tomorrow, always. The goal is to capture what we manage to create, we created a lot in the first leg. We deserved another result, we have done a lot, tomorrow will need balance, awareness, and concentration, we walk onto the field very organized.

Are you concerned about the lack of choices in attack?
The players who take the pitch wearing the Porto shirt must have the desire to play, I have no doubt that they will. Our commitment is at its highest, all are ready to reach our goal.

Do you know Bruno Peres? Do you think of having to make adjustments since he’ll be used?
Yes, I know Bruno Peres, just like I know all the players of Rome, who is a great opponent that we respect. They used a back 4 that’s open to interpreter, but we will concentrate on our strengths to play our game.
