Last night, Gennaro Gattuso’s Marseille and Roberto De Zerbi’s Brigton beat Ajax and AEK respectively. The Phocéens are 1st in Group B with 11 points, and the English club 2nd with 10 points. The battle for top spot will be between the two leading teams. As a result, the former Sassuolo coach promises his compatriot a merciless battle.
“We’re really happy. We didn’t play well, we didn’t play in our usual style, it was a difficult match. Tonight we showed a different mentality, showing our soul and resilience. It was a historic day for Brighton, for the club and for our fans. To take top spot in the group, we have to beat Marseille, and they’re a great team, as are AEK,” said Roberto De Zerbi.
