The appreciation by the Success Trainer Bergamos likes the Finnish national goalkeeper, but at the same time he knows that these words do not own any significance due to the kick-off. “That someone like gasperini says about our team, gives us even more self-confidence,” explains the keeper, “but the whole talk is worth nothing, we have to show it on Thursday. This will be a tight and safe worth seeing game.”
Hradecky does not make a secret from the anticipation of this. “It’s the first K.-O. game this year, without a awayator rule, with two offensive teams – that will be entertaining,” says the 32-year-old, who sustains the favorite role at least in the game the hosts.
Hope for Diaby and Wirtz: “You will create us chances”
“In her stadium, we may be the light outsider,” but judges the captain, but to add directly: “To speculate about it is not worth it, we have to show a mature performance as in Munich.”
He is particularly committed to Bayers attacking wit and in particular to the two operational top stars of the offensive. “We have Moussa Diaby and Florian Wirtz in top form. They will certainly create opportunities,” he predicts and relies on the final strength shown this year. “The effectiveness that has helped us in the last few weeks will hopefully help us tomorrow.” Hradecky’s wish true, Bayer is likely to be the next praise gasperinis.
