Lerager on Raków: We need our amazing fans again

F.C. Copenhagen midfielder Lukas Lerager says a packed Parken Stadium for Wednesday's clash with Raków Częstochowa can make the difference as the Lions seek to qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage.

FCK carry a 1-0 first-leg lead into the home encounter of the Champions League playoff and the club expects Parken to sell out.

And Lerager hopes the fans will be able to get the players that extra boost they need to get through the contest.

"We know that it will be really intense and will require a top performance from everyone who goes out there," says Lerager. "We're going up against a strong, unified team and the match in Poland was very even, even though we came away with a really better result.

"We must dominate in Parken with and without the ball and run the match on our terms. We know we can, but it requires us to deliver 100 percent work-rate all the way to the end.

"We are really looking forward to once again experiencing a great European evening in Parken. The fans give the team energy and huge motivation. It's important for everyone in and around the club that we get into the Champions League and we know that everyone, both on the pitch and in the stands, will give everything for us to succeed on Wednesday."
