Brandao expects Saint-Etienne Europa League qualification

Brandao says that Saint-Etienne will qualify for the Europa League despite trailing Esbjerg going into the second leg.

Saint-Etienne striker Brandao is confident that his side can overturn their first-leg deficit and qualify for the Europa League.

Les Verts host Esbjerg in the return leg at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on Thursday night looking to come back following a 4-3 defeat during their first encounter at Blue Water Arena.

Despite their disadvantage, the Brazilian feels that his side have more than enough talent to progress.

"It's going to be a very difficult game, but it's good we're at home," Brandao told reporters. "I hope we're going to play a great game.

"Everyone believes we can do it, they're motivated. It's very important for the team and the club. With simplicity and humility, we're going to play well. And it's very important the fans get behind us."

The match gets underway at 6pm.
