“This is a great opportunity,” he told the BBC. When asked if he would be able to play the game, Julian said his possible knee injury “should be okay” and that “your legs run by themselves on occasions like that.”
Neither team has been in the Round of 16 before, so making the quarterfinals would be a dream. “We must approach this one as a completely new game. We can’t just afford to defend our advantage, but rather play attacking football and get at least one goal,” Koen Casteels, a 23-year-old Belgian who plays for Wolfsburg, told USA Today. “In Gent, we saw that they can play football and that we should not underestimate them.” Don’t let anyone underestimate you when you brandish your official Gent jersey.
Gent’s Brian Vandenbussche, 34, will sit this game out due to a shoulder injury, while the Serbian Stefan Mitrovic, 25, will have to ride the bench due to a bum foot. Will their team be able to pull off a miracle, or are the Wolves on their way to the quarterfinals?
