Roberto targets home win
01 October 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Roberto Soldado wants us to make home advantage count in Thursday’s Europa League clash with Besiktas.
We take on the Turkish giants at White Hart Lane seeking to take the upper hand in a tight group where all four teams are currently level on one point apiece after the first round of games.
With three more points up for grabs this week, striker Roberto wants us to use the familiar N17 territory to our advantage – but he’s under no illusions about how tough a game it promises to be having seen Besiktas run Arsenal close in the Champions League Play-Off Round at the beginning of the campaign.
“This game is really important for us because it’s at home and always when we play at White Hart Lane we need to win,” said the Spaniard, who has scored two goals in five appearances in all competitions for us so far in 2014-15.
“We know that Besiktas are a big team and they showed their qualities against Arsenal while playing for a place in the Champions League.
“Now we play them at home and we need a win after we drew 0-0 in Partizan. We want to qualify in first position in the group, so we need to win this game to get the three points.”
