"Among the other clubs we could have faced, on paper there were certainly easier opponents than Lille", continued Ten Hag.

Lille is familiar ground for Ten Hag's side. Last season both clubs faced each other during the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. "At the time we beat them twice, which gave us a real boost of confidence. I'm really looking forward to it, as it'll make a great poster."
