Al-Sadd head coach Bruno Miguel affirmed the readiness of his side for the upcoming Group B fourth-round clash in the AFC Champions League against Jordan’s Al-Faisaly.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Bruno said, “We tried to quickly recover the players’ fitness after the last match against Al-Markhiya. The first-leg match against Al-Faisaly was good for us, and the second-leg match will be entirely different. Al-Faisaly has a new coach and has got more than one win in the local league.”
Bruno continued, “They also have a large and passionate fan base, and I hope it serves as motivation for both teams in tomorrow’s match.”
Bruno noted that Al-Sadd will enter the game with great focus to compete for their goal, which is winning the next match, and then thinking about the upcoming competitions. He acknowledged the difficulty of all AFC Champions League matches for everyone.
“We played a good match against Al-Sharjah in the first round, but luck was not on our side, unlike the match against Nasaf where we made several mistakes and lost the game,” he added.
Regarding the team’s playing style in tomorrow’s match, Bruno said, “The team’s playing style is always attacking, but we must deal with the conditions of each match, especially the opponent’s playing style. We came for the three points, and we will work in the best way to secure a victory.”
