Ghana defender Abdul Kadiri Mohammed has expressed confidence his Austria Wiens side will play in the knock-out stage of the UEFA Europa League despite their dip in form in recent games.

Wiens will qualify to the knock-out stage of the competition if they beat Greek giants AEK Athens at the Ernst Happel Stadion Thursday evening.

The Greeks hold a three-point advantage over the Austrian side going into the final round of group games, but with Wien picking up a crucial point in the first leg, a win for them would secure qualification with the application of the head-to-head rule.

Speaking to Class Sports ahead of the game, Mohammed admitted his side is not in the best of form, just like their opponent.

He said: “Our form going into the game has not been good enough. We have only won one out of our last five games in all competitions but that of our opponents is not any better. If you check their record, you will notice that they have also won only one out of their last five games and drawn the other four.

“This is a big opportunity for the club and myself and we cannot afford to let the fans down. This game could end up defining our season and we don’t want to take chances. The coach is doing everything to get everyone in the best possible shape and I’m sure victory would be ours after the game.”

Wien were thumped 5 – 1 by Italian giants AC Milan while AEK dropped valuable points in their 2 – 2 drawn game against Croatian side HNK Rijeka in their last games.
