Sousa hopes to cause upset

Videoton coach Paulo Sousa admits his side should be regarded as underdogs for Thursday's penultimate Europa League Group G match against Genk - but insists his players will do all they can come away with the three points.

Belgian outfit Genk arrived in Hungary knowing that victory will take the group leaders into the last 32 with a game to spare, although the second-placed hosts harbour similar aspirations.

Should Videoton avenge their 3-0 defeat to to Genk on matchday one, they could make sure of their place in the next round providing Basle fail to beat Sporting Lisbon in the night's other Group G game.

But Sousa insists his side will be punching above their weight regardless of the outcome at Sostoi Stadion.

``Genk is a club of a higher level than ours,'' the Portuguese told a press conference.

``You can see it in their budget, the qualification for the Champions League last season, the number of internationals who led the team home and much more.

``Individually and as a team they are one level higher than us.

``But that does not mean that we do not ascribe ourselves opportunities.

``Genk is closest to the qualification. We must win and also count on favours.

``In any case, I expect that our offensive game will be determined by how Genk let us play football.''

Certainly the form book favours Videoton, who are unbeaten in their last 10 European home games dating back to 1989. Should results fall their way tomorrow, they will become the first Hungarian side to make it through the group stage of a UEFA club competition.

Genk coach Mario Been is not expecting any surprises from Videoton, and expects the opposition to adopt the same mentality to when the sides met in September.

On that occasion, goals from Jelle Vossen, Thomas Buffel and Benjamin De Ceulaer saw the Belgians to victory, but the coach does not anticipate Videoton to alter their approach for the return.

``They play home and away just the same way,'' Been told a press conference.

``They let the ball go to the opponent and then wait for errors. Counter-attack is their speciality.

``In contrast, we have a team capable of scoring. We should certainly go for goal while being wary of the counter.

``We are going to do everything to win here on Thursday night.''
