“Yes, we are all ready to take the big step. I think everyone is good both mentally and physically for the battle with HJK Helsinki," said Ludogorets goalkeeper Sergio Padt. "The Finns are a good team and that's why they are in the Europa League. There are many strong teams in this tournament. And we saw them in the first game. Now it will be the same, so we have to be prepared. We realize how important this match is in order to get to the spring games," said the goalkeeper.
Asked how he would comment on Jose Mourinho's words that Roma and Ludogorets will be fighting for second place in Group C of the tournament, Padt replied: "That for me is a great compliment from a great coach. And we're trying to be a competitive team, going up against the big guys. That's our idea."
