Lille and Landreau eye last 16

7 December 2011 14:07

Lille's Mickael Landreau says his side are aiming to book their place in the Champions League knockouts with victory over Trabzonspor.

Ligue 1 title-holders Lille are one point behind Turkish outfit Trabzonspor in Group B of the Champions League.

They know a win in Wednesday's match at the Stade Nord Lille Metropole will ensure participation in the last 16 of Europe's elite club competition.

Goalkeeper Landreau, 32, confirmed the fixture had featured prominently in his team's thinking since their last outing in Europe, a 2-0 win over CSKA Moscow.

"Our coach Rudy Garcia is an ambitious competitor who wants to qualify for the knockout stages," Landreau told the club's official website.

"To be clear, since our victory in Moscow, Trabzonspor have been in our minds. This is all the more remarkable because as we have been preparing for this match, we have also been successful in the league."

Landreau said securing progression from the group had been the club's goal from the start of the season, and he is convinced it is possible.

"This is a match in which we can achieve one of our goals for this season," he said.

"Reaching the knockout stages at first seemed ambitious, but we now know that it is in fact feasible."

"We achieved the double last season, which is important because it shows that the team know how to win."
