​​João Brandão: “We really want to win this match”

The Under-19 face Leipzig, in Germany, for matchday 3 of the Youth League (Tuesday, 14h00)

This Tuesday, in Germany, FC Porto's Under-19 team is aiming at their second victory in this edition of the UEFA Youth League, this time against Leipzig. The match starts at 14h00, mainland Portugal time. Coach João Brandão asks the team for seriousness, dedication and intensity in the match, so that the team gets three more points in this matchday three, thus taking another step towards the qualification to the next stage of the competition.

The blue and whites are currently second in Group G, with three points, three behind Monaco, first, and two ahead of Leipzig and Besiktas.

Recipe for victory
“We are completely focused on a match that we really want to win. First, we will have to recover the players, which is fundamental, as we have a short break between the two matches. We will have to approach this next match in a much more serious and dedicated way, winning many more duels and second balls than those we won in the last one, and we also have to be much more effective on the technical level. This all comes from the way we look at the game mentally, and that's going to be decisive for us to win in Germany.”
