Cioffi said: "We are proud as a club and proud as a football side because it is something that has never happened in this club.

"It has to be something to be proud of without losing the humility and the desire to work which has characterised us until now.

"I think the men of sport needs to be remembered. But this does not affect our preparation or who we are. We know sometimes when we do our best we are in the hands of the gods.

He said: "It’s not 80/20 game for the opponent. It’s a 50/50 game. We are ready we are happy and we can’t wait for the referee to blow his whistle because we writing a piece of history.

"This is good, we want to enjoy the moment and we want to treat everyone to an amazing night.

"It’s another game and sometimes the emotions pollutes what football is. We know if we do our job we can be competitive and keep dreaming."
