Hapoel Be’er Sheva’s Nigerian midfielder John Ogu hopes his side defeat Besiktas and earn a comfortable lead at home in Thursday’s UEFA Europa League first leg clash, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
“Saturday’s win over Hapoel Ashkelon gives us more confidence and enough time to prepare,” Ogu told Completesportsnigeria. com
“We have to rattle them and get a good lead into the second leg, they are a great side and trust me we won’t underrate them. Our motive is to win.”
Ogu who helped his side secure their 15th league win of the season as they defeated Hapoel Ashkelon 2-1 on Saturday is also determined to land another League title at the end of the season.
The win over Hapoel Ashkelon meant the Camels opened an eight-point gap pending when Maccabi Tel Aviv play their outstanding game later on Sunday.
Ogu has featured in 32 games in all competitions this term, scoring just once in the Europa League.
