The Tirana team has returned to Tirana after the preparatory phase that took place in Turkey on the eve of the first European match that will be played on July 5 in Luxembourg against Dudelange.
The whites and blues have rested only a week since the end of last season when they were declared champions, however coach Orges Shehi shows that this fact has not affected the atmosphere of the boys.
Orges Shehi, coach of Tirana: The atmosphere is very good for the team, there is no reason why the players should not be in the mood or in the rhythm. It is not always played in the Champions League.
It has been weeks since the draw and now Tirana and Shehi have more information about their Luxembourg opponent.
Orges Shehi: It may not be a big name team but we would be wrong to consider it an easy team. He is a very strong opponent, we are not afraid but we have maximum respect. I believe the odds are 50 by 50.
White and blue midfielder Enur Totre knows this opponent even better after he played against them at the time when he was active at Shkëndija e Tetovës.
Enur Totre, football player of Tirana: A team that plays good football but I believe we have all the opportunities and I can say that it is a passable opponent.
Tirana will play the return match in the capital at the Air Albania stadium, officially confirming a field that has produced not only a game but also very good performances for the country’s champions last year.
