A cautious Fenerbahce coach, Aykut Kocaman, told a press conference that his team would still have to work hard to win the second leg match in Istanbul, after defeating 1-0 Viktoria Plzen in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 tie.
At the press conference Ayku Kocaman said you can't win matches without playing, even though we have the away goal advantage "
"You have to go out there and play the game as a team"
Question from Czech journalist , "Are you afraid of tomorrow's match"
Was answered by Aykut Kocaman with a bit a smile on his face " Yes , to tell you truth, Yes I do feel a bit of afraid "
In the beginning of his press conference, Aykut Kocaman congratulate Galatasaray team.
He said , "Galatasaray did the hard thing and went through"
Fenerbahce will be without their fans in the stands...
UEFA has rejected Fenerbahce's appeal against playing in an empty stadium on Thursday because fans delayed an earlier closed-door match by parachuting in fireworks.
The 12th man not being there , will hurt Fenerbahce financially and not having the fan support in the stands too!
*Fenerbahçe have won two of their last three European home games without conceding, but are far from invulnerable in Istanbul, having lost the other match in that run 3-0 to VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach.
*Fenerbahçe have reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League (2007/08) and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1963/64) but are making their debut in the last 16 of this competition.
Fenerbahce with one foot in , they could well qualified to next round if they play as a team..
Players like Dirk Kuyt could help with his experience.....
Fenerbahce vs Plzen match will start at 4.05 PM,ET on Thursday , March 14th,2013
