Vincenzo Montella believes that, however difficult it may seem, there is a chance of victory at the Allianz Arena this Wednesday. As he explained in this evening's press conference ahead of the clash, where he was accompanied by player Franco Vázquez: "The minutes are long and what's most important is that we remain in the game in the whole time, playing with balance and patience. We do not have to make calculations, and play the same match as the first leg whatever happens. We have to be focussed the entire time, we have to give off a good image, and if we believe it is possible we will be able to do it. What's most important is that we don't concede any goals in the first-half".
Despite the team's painful defeat in Vigo, the Italian trusts that the team can repeat previous good performance: "The other day we started well, with ambition, with our heads in the game and with opportunities to score. After the first goal and during the second-half we lost our balance, we didn't play as a team. We have to be confident in our attack". The coach gave nothing away with regards to tomorrow's starting eleven: "I reveal the team firstly to the players and then to the press. Tomorrow it will be released, we still have a training session and I would prefer not to say yet".
"We need to try and not concede in the first half, not make calculations and play the same match as the first leg"
With regards to what has gone wrong at times, the coach gave his interpretation: "I have my analysis, and I can say that we lose balance when we rush to come back from a negative scoreline. We do not play as a team and I believe that this has caused more problems for us in La Liga than in the Champions League". He also assured that, at times, luck is necessary: "I am not superstitious, but in our last three matches we haven't been lucky. If we believe it is possible, I am sure that our luck will return and I hope that it does tomorrow".
