“We absolutely believe in first place in the group and it’ll above all be important for the seeding in the next round, so we must be aware of that going in,” the director of sport told Sky Sport Italia.

“Considering the atmospheric conditions too, it won’t be a simple game for us. Apollon Limassol are in good shape, we have to utmost respect for them, but we want to win.”

As the Biancocelesti and Eintracht Frankfurt have already qualified for the Round of 32, many stars are rested this evening.

“Joaquin Correa is a great investment for the club and is living up to our expectations. Clearly, nobody wants to start from the bench, but the Coach makes the decisions and they must be respected.

“When the January transfer window opens, we’ll take into account the situations of those who want to play more regularly, but this is not the moment to talk about transfers.”
