Europa League's group stage ends today with a final for us. We need a win to be sure we go through to the knockouts (a draw will also do if Skenderbeu beats Lokomotiv).
In spite of the many voices that within the club claim that this should not be our priority I have a feeling that JJ really wants to win this one and the list of players called seems to prove me right. He called practically the same players he usually does when we have league games and I think our starting XI will not differ much from the one that has been more regular this season.
I think we are the best team of this group and although Besiktas are right now the best side in Turkey I think we can beat them.
So, here's the group of players called by Jorge Jesus for the match:
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
