What has Stephen Bradley said
“It’s a difficult game, but I feel that we can go and hurt them, I really do,” said Bradley, who became the first Shamrock Rovers manager to win a European group stage point last week,"
“We know it’s a tough place to go. They are a good side, play a very similar system to ourselves, and have two or three really, really good players who are good technically and clever. We have to be at our levels like we were on Thursday, and if we do that, we can cause them problems.”
