This is exactly what we needed. Hamburg are a good side, we know they are better organised than us, and we will actually turn up. We are gonna win away.

Don't we play this lot quite regularly during pre-season? 4th in the bundesliga and probably the best team left in the comp! Bonus that the second leg is away though, we can't just play for a draw at theirs though we just can't...

We're deffo going to have to be on top of our game for this one. No micing about with it around their penalty area. Shoot!

Oh Dear. Agree with Doody that Hamburg are the toughest team left in the competition and after last night I'm not entirely certain we're good enough to beat them. Just have to hope that we do the normal thing and play to the level of our opponents, because that would be enough to get us through.

The toughest draw we could have had but at least we are playing away first - need to get that away goal.
