KAA Gent midfielder, Anderson Esiti, is confident The Buffaloes can overturn their 5-2 first leg deficit in the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 second leg clash at KRC Genk on Thursday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Esiti, suspended for the clash due to the red card he got in the first leg at Ghelamco Arena admits that the encounter will be tough for Gent, but remains confident they can overturn the deficit to progress into the quarter-finals.
“We believe we can go through but we must take our chances,” Esiti tells Completesportsnigeria.com.
“They took their chances in the first leg and that gives them the advantage going into the second leg. We must also be creative to make that happen.”
Esiti’s compatriots; Samuel Kalu, Moses Simon, William Troost- Ekong and Rabiu Ibrahim are in the matchday squad for the away game.
Gent need to win by 3-0 or more goal margin to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.
