Motherwell striker Henrik Ojamaa is optimistic that their weekend draw against Everton can help his side to Euro glory over Panathinaikos.
The Steelmen are at home next Tuesday for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League third-round qualifying tie against the Greek team.
"It's an amazing chance for us but we all know that they have a lot of quality," Ojamaa said. "We don't want to get too excited about it because we are trying to keep our focus on the season as a whole and get our fitness levels up, but it is always at the back of your mind.
"It is a game most people will look at and expect Panathinaikos to win easily, but we're hoping that we can turn that to our advantage. We don't have any fear. We are going into the game looking to attack and give it our all.
"We showed against Everton the kind of football we are capable of and we have taken some encouragement from that."
Shane Duffy gave the visitors a first-half lead in Saturday's testimonial game for Stevie Hammell but Motherwell hit back with Nicky Law's spectacular volley, bringing hints that Stuart McCall's side could sneak a win.
While the game ended level, Motherwell displayed a creative, confident side to their play that was badly lacking in their pre-season outing last weekend at Somerset Park when they were thumped by Ayr.
The Steelmen will look to build more form in tomorrow's friendly against Hamilton, while McCall is hopeful a defensive headache can be eased by the signing of triallist Simon Ramsden, formerly of Bradford City.
Shaun Hutchinson, Steven Saunders and Jonathan Page missed the Everton match and only Hutchinson looks to have a chance of being fit to start the new season. Money matters are complicated by the situation with Rangers, however.
"We could do with another player or two but that is the manager's concern," said Ojamaa. "We are just concentrating on trying to do the best we can and really go for it."
The striker believes the absence of Rangers from the SPL will not deter foreign players.
"I liked the club – it wouldn't have made any difference if Rangers were here or not," he said. "There are a lot of players who want to show what they can do. If they think they might have a chance at European football, that might encourage them to other Scottish clubs."
