Ahead of the biggest club match in Australian football history, Adelaide United captain Travis Dodd is remaining positive.

Dodd respects the opposition, Gamba Osaka, but knows that for his team to win they will need to go all-out in attack.

“They’re quite a good technical team so I’m sure they will be going out to try and get a goal and seal the game,” Dodd said.

“Three goals is a big advantage and to use this advantage and get the first goal is very important. We’ll look to control the match and get the result.

“The players have to have belief in themselves that we can do it and if you don’t have that then there is no point in going out there, so we will be going out there with a positive frame of mind that we can score three goals to draw the tie and then get the extra one to win it.”
