"I feel for us maybe it is not necessarily a disadvantage to play the big clubs," he said. "At least the big clubs will play [football] as well.

"Last year, we lost against Eindhoven, who refused to play in the first leg. Then, in the second game, they just waited for one counter-attack. We struggled more in that game than we had done the season before against Real Madrid.

"Maybe when you play against Real Madrid or Barcelona, you say 'what a hell of a task' but then you face a different problem because they will come out and play.

"If we do finish second in the group, nobody would be especially keen to play against us. But having said that I still want to finish top."
