Club Brugge continued their momentum on Tuesday night in the Champions League, by winning against Atlético de Madrid (2-0) his third victory in three matches, which puts the Belgians in good position for qualification in the round of 16. Their coach Carl Hoefkens praised his players’ performance after the match.
“There is an incredibly strong determination in this team, we believe we can do great things. We will do everything to get there. All. I said from the first game, before Leverkusen, that I didn’t want to be the manager who comes into the dressing room after the game and says: ‘There was more to do today’. I almost hate it. It’s about giving it your all. You might not always play a high level match, but you will get this fire result (like Tuesday night). »
“Against Atlético, it was also about fighting and working for each other. But always with the intention of moving forward and playing football. Atlético did their job well. They knew exactly how we were going to play. If you have an answer to that as a team, then that’s a huge achievement for everyone.”added Hoefkens.
Brugge, first in their group in C1, have a six-point lead over the other three teams before traveling to Madrid for the return match next week (Tuesday, 6:45 p.m.).
