Slavia Prague boss Jindrich Trpisovsky has admitted that his side will try to play their game despite the odds being largely stacked against them for tomorrow’s match against Inter.
“We’re in a group of giants and we’re aware of that, but if we didn’t believe then we wouldn’t even try to play here at San Siro. We have the quality to make any team suffer. We want to be able to surprise our opponents,” he said in his pre-match press conference.
“Inter will want to assert themselves with their game. We’ll try to impose our style, knowing that we’re facing a very good team. It’ll be difficult, the history of Inter is for all to see. For us, it’s a great opportunity to learn.”
“We both made changes over the summer. We know little about them and it’s better that they don’t know much about us either. It’s part of the game.
“We’ll try to pick up as many points as possible. We want to make our mark in Europe.”
He then spoke on Romelu Lukaku and his presumed absence from tomorrow night’s game due to a back injury.
“I don’t think Lukaku will play because, from what we know, he isn’t fit and that’s important for us. The game without him will be different. We’ll have one less problem if he’s not there.”
