Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin insists that his side will not take Siroki Brijeg lightly in their Europa League qualifier.

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin has insisted that he will not be taking Siroki Brijeg lightly in Thursday night's Europa League third qualifying round clash.

Guidolin said that he has seen enough in his 40 years in football to know that the team from Bosnian-Herzegovina could be a big threat if Udinese underestimate them.

"I don't think there is a real favourite in this type of match," Guidolin told "I try to give my players the same motivations and the same input regardless of our opponent.

"Matches are played on the field and everyone in Europe is well prepared. In 40 years of football I've seen everything, so I'm not considering whether we are the favourites or not.

"We are prepared. Know that Siroki for at least 10 years continuously qualify for the preliminary round of Europa or Champions League. Last year they won the national cup final. Their dream to eliminate us, so we must focus."

The game kicks off at 7.45pm, with the second leg to be played in a week's time.
