"To have three wins out of three when two of those games are against Besiktas and Bayer Leverkusen away is a very good feeling," said Martin after the win in Leverkusen. "Now we want to go on and finish top of the group.

"The UEFA Cup has been a great experience for us and these wins are good for the confidence of the team.
