Leko about… Monday's game

“Standard have a strong team with good individual players. We already know them quite well so I don't expect many surprises on Monday. Standard will certainly be strong since Michel Preud'homme and Emilio Ferrera are two coaches who know how to prepare for a very important game. Together with our fans, we will go for the win. We really feel the support of our fans on the field and that is what we need. Everyone looks ahead to the atmosphere on Monday."
