Celtic FC News: ‘Go and attack the game’, urges Brendan Rodgers ahead of the Valencia clash

Celtic FC News: Brendan Rodgers of Celtic wants his side to dominate the game in their Europa League clash against Valencia. (h/t Guardian) Brendan rodgers If you look back at the history book of Celtic, their success at European competition has always remained bleak. In fact, Hoops weren’t able to get past the round of 32 since 2009. After failing to qualify for the UCL group stages, Celtic have managed to keep them onboard in the Europa league this season. Now, Brendan Rodgers has lent his voice over the upcoming round of 32 clash with the  La Liga side. The  manager said This is a challenge for us,” Rodgers said. “I said to the players this morning: ‘Listen, we are playing against a good team, everyone recognises that, but let’s not forget we’re a good team as well.’That’s why we are at this stage of the competition. We are through on merit. We had good teams in our group and we qualified. We deserve it. So let’s go and attack the game and enjoy it. (h/t Guardian) He later lauded the Spanish side for their good run this season and expects a great competition with them. Comparing the stats The Scottish side have been in the driver seat since the start of the season with four losses. Perhaps, they haven’t lost any games from the start of 2019 and most importantly the victories were more comprehensive. On the other hand, Valencia who have the same number of defeats as Hoops, are currently eighth in the La Liga table which shows the quality of the league they are playing in. Since the New Year, Garcia Toral’s side have lost 3 games and won four. Their notable performance was the draw against Barcelona. Oliver Burke has been one of the players who really impressed the Rodgers since his arrival. The on-loan youngster has scored 3 goals in 4 appearances. And he is set to make his return after suffering an ankle injury in the previous game against St. Johnstone.
