Breakers douse blaze to stay unbeaten against Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough manager Claudio Ranieri says the club’s fans are always positive and look forward to playing at the Nou Camp.
The Black Cats are looking to keep up the impressive start to the season after a 2-0 win at Birmingham on Friday evening.
Ranieri, who will join a team from the Canary Islands for Sunday’s vital league encounter against Southampton, admitted his team needed to be strong in a tough match.
The Black Cats will face Sunderland and Manchester City in the last eight on Saturday night, but there is optimism the side will still earn a play-off spot – or even reach it – come December.
Ranieri said: “In our country we will always love the games and we like to score goals.
“But this year we have been unlucky sometimes – we have lost 3-2, but also lost a very good game and won 2-1.
“We must do all we can to bring the positive in all the games and give it an extra bit of energy and hope.
“So far I think we are showing the right attitude but I want to show them that this is only the start of my career as a manager. I know what we need to do and it doesn’t just depend on me but every other guy in t바카라his squad.
“We have to play every game in that fashion and I think that we will reach the top and get the right result.”
