Aboubakar assumes favouritism for “vital match”

Striker sees Monaco, the opponent for this Wednesday (19h45), as a team with “value”

Aboubakar is a player of simple and straightforward procedures and, at the preview press conference for Wednesday's match against Monaco, the Cameroonian was also objective. In short statements, the striker admitted the favouritism for the match that can qualify the Dragons to the Round of 16 of the Champions League and also proved to be quite optimistic. What he wants is to play and, preferably, to score.

The importance of the match
“It's a vital match. We want to please our supporters, who are always there for us, and we hope to play well and have a good match, as we have done so far. We expect, as always, a difficult match, as, like any other team, Monaco has value. They will try to prove it and we have to acknowledge that value.”

“Of course. We’re going to do everything we have to, we have our coach here who will prepare us to have a great match and win.”

Dependence on the goals of Aboubakar?
“We are a team. The coach makes the team, the coach decides, not me. The team depends on everyone. If I prefer to play alone in front or accompanied? I feel great. What matters is the coach, he decides the tactic, not me.”

Three matches without goals
“There are moments like this in life, some less good and some better. But I think tomorrow will be a good match for us.”
