Yacine Brahimi was the spokesman of the confidence that is felt in the group to face Leipzig, for matchday three of the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. The Algerian winger sat next to Sérgio Conceição at the press conference, stating that FC Porto is “eager” to play a “big game” and get the three points in front of “a good team”, as is the German vice-champion.
Match to be decided by details
“I think the most important thing in this game will be the group spirit that we have since the start of the season. It will be a match against a good team, but we are confident, with great desire to play a big game that, I believe, will be decided by details. We are well and we will give everything to get back to Porto with the three points.”
The force is the group
“The most important thing is the team, and, without it, I can’t do anything. Our strength is the group, and to try to be well in all matches. I just do my job and my best to help my teammates.”
What changed this season
“The answer is hard, as I wasn’t the one making decisions, but, for me, that’s in the past and the truth is that I learned from those complicated moments. I'm feeling well now, happy more than anything, and I think the way the team plays and the way the team relates also makes me feel well. I just have to continue like this, working every day to improve, with a lot of desire to win and do things well.”
