Light aims to eliminate Antwerp tonight
The light will descend on the green field tonight with a clear goal: the Gjilan team aims to advance to the third qualifying round of the Conference Leagues.
The team from Gjilan drew with Antwerp in a goalless trip last week, while now it has the opportunity to wait for a ticket to the next stage, in the match it will play tonight at “home”.
The “intellectuals” played well in the first match in Belgium and this gives hope that they will repeat it, but that they will be more concrete and score goals this time, writes “Rhewal”.
Coach Ardian Nuhiu expressed optimism before tonight’s game, where Drita will have the great support of its fans in the stadium.
“Our team is good, the players are maximally focused and have special motivation before the return match with Antwerp. It is actually a very good opportunity to move on, especially after the result in the first match. The opponent is not easy at all, as it is an aggressive team that applies high pressure and has quality players in the composition. Of course it will be difficult”, said the Albanian coach from North Macedonia first.
“Well, for all this, we are prepared and I believe in another good team performance. I wish we have a great match, as we have complete confidence in ourselves, and continue the competitions in the international arena”, he continued.
The successful coach is convinced that the support of the fans will make the job easier for his players.
“We expect massive support for this match, not only from our fans, but from all of Kosovo, and the goal is to make all of Kosovo proud. If we go further, it would be a very big achievement not only for our club, but for all of Kosovo football. I believe that we will give our best to move on”, Nuhiu continued.
Whereas, Nuhiu considers the eventual transfer of the Bardhekaltër team as a great achievement for Kosovar football, which is being represented by four teams in Europe this season.
On the other hand, the Belgians also have their goals to qualify further from this match.
The match between Drita and Antwerp will be played tonight at the “Fadil Vokrri” stadium, starting at 20:00. /Rhewal/
