Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin says they're determined to reach the Champions League group stage.

The Friulani were also in this phase of the competition last season, but were eliminated over two legs by Arsenal.

"This is a fundamental passage for us. I cannot say whether we are more or less prepared than we were last year," said Guidolin in his Press conference.

"Arsenal were extremely strong even though they had problems. Braga have excellent qualities and we must focus on the double test.

"Braga have very quick players from the midfield up, plus good technique in the middle of the park. They are compact and solid."
