The second leg isn't next week so perhaps their thoughts may not be predominantly on CL, I fear they will be concentrating on the FA Cup, they also have CL qualification (next season) in their minds so perhaps they will just be "taking one game at a time".
Result, I hope they have a win they may then be slightly more over-confident. I am though hoping that the extra game , and travel, will take a little bit out of them.
