"Will it be easy against Giovanni Trapattoni's team? No, no, no. If we think like that that, we would already be losing 1-0. We always say that kind of thing to motivate ourselves," Fabregas was quoted as saying by Uefa.com.
"We are a humble team, we respect other sides and treat them the way we should. I think that helps us get the result we deserve.
"We will put everything we have into the game. We have to play our own style of football, to never give up, and keep attacking."
Thursday's encounter in Gdansk kicks off at 20:45CET.
