"It is a match that I wanted to take part in; unfortunately it will not happen because of the suspension. But I have faith in my teammates; I know they will rise up for the occasion on Sunday. The main thing is for us to win the game and be in a good position ahead of the second leg.
“It is football and we cannot underrate anyone, it is all about concentration in the entire game and both legs."
