Clean sheet

This will be a real test for us.

From front to back, León will provide a different challenge than the regular season.

We need to be at our best defensively.

Patient and positive

In possession, we need to be patient and positive.

We need to play quickly as they will press us.

And we need to know what we’re going to do with the ball before we receive it.

Take our chances

León are very good – the champions of Concacaf.

We need to be a genuine threat in front of goal.

Getting Ryan Gauld involved will be key to creating chances.
