Olympiakos Piraeus drew English power house Manchester United in the round of 16. They’re chances to advance might look slim going off brand power alone, but United has been struggling this season in domestic competitions and the Premier League.
“I’m delighted to have reached this stage and can’t wait for tomorrow’s match. The stakes are high and we won’t give anything away,” Olympiakos coach Michel said in comments distributed by UEFA. “Of course experience counts but we have the ability to overcome our lack of it. The passion we have displayed to get here will serve us well against United and cause them problems. We will do everything in our power to beat them tomorrow night.
“We are in better shape than we were two months ago. We have been working hard and everyone is well prepared. The players are extremely motivated and raring to go. United are a top-class team and I will not comment on their form. They cannot afford to make any errors given their position in the Premier League. We also can’t afford to give anything less than 100%.”
