‘I have liked penalties since I was young,’ the 27-year-old added.
‘I won many penalty shoot-outs when I was playing academy football, and now during my professional career. I train for them, but you need a mix of things: a bit of luck, a bit of training, a bit of mental strength.
‘I feel good in these situations, and I’m happy when we arrive to penalties. Hopefully we can keep like this and keep winning penalty shoot-outs.’
For what it’s worth, Brentford have won their past two shoot-outs, so if the game does end in a draw tonight two successful spot-kick sides will be going face to face. In the regulation 90 minutes Kepa expects a similarly tricky test to the one we faced in the league at the Brentford Community Stadium. He believes we will require ‘our best performance’ to advance to the semi-finals.
