Newcastle have great Europa League chance - Pardew

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes his players are good enough to win the Europa League this season.

As the Magpies prepare for the Round of 16 first leg against Anzhi Makhachkala in Moscow tomorrow night, Pardew is going in with an air of confidence that his team are capable of pushing towards the final of Europe's second tier competition.

"Do I think we have got a chance in the competition? When you get to this stage, all the clubs have a chance," said Pardew.

"You need some luck, but you need a good technical game and you need to have the right mentality in the group. I think our mentality is strong.

"This tie is going to be close and I think the result here will have a huge reflection on St James' Park because that is an advantage for us, that the second leg is there, for sure."
