With Antonio Conte set to watch the game in the stands, he claims his team “will have to show great character in this game”, just like they did against Bournemouth in their last gasp win on the weekend.

“It will be a tough game, but we know very well, we study well, and we create a strategy to achieve our target”.
Igor Tudor has said “it is beautiful to be able to play a decisive match in such a strong group, for an outsider like us”, as the Croatian hopes to bring Marseille to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the first time since their quarter final run in 2011/12.
