Hugo Canela and company travel to Romania for showdown

Ambition was the flavour of the day as Sporting CP headed for Romania for the Challenge Cup final second-leg against Potaissa Turda, with Alvalade looking to build on the nine-goal lead already tallied in Lisbon (37-28) in the first-leg.

"We are expecting a hard match against a team that will go right for us from the off and try to turn over what we did in Lisbon. We will be calm, because we know what they will try and do. We are ready and we want to win. We want to finish this tournament with only wins", affirmed Hugo Canela at the airport.

Skipper Carlos Carneiro also shared his thoughts: "We know it will be tough, but we are going to Romania felling very confidence. We have everything we need to win this."
