Mircea Lucescu: “We should expect for a difficult game against Braga in Lviv. We play at home but the field is not our native.
The head coach of Shakhtar Mircea Lucescu has given the comment after a victory over Braga (2:1) in the first leg of the Europe League quarterfinal.
– Good, spectacular game. We have organized a game in defense well in the first half, Braga couldn’t create anything but a single strike towards the goal. We used our opportunity at the end of the first half. We acknowledged that we play against strong, technical and aggressive team. We took advantage of our fast attacking that could bring us some better results in the second half. I think, we should expect for a difficult game in Lviv. We will try to get ready well to qualify into the semi-finals.
– Estimate Marlos’s game.
– Марлос played really well. He is always at the upfront when the team needs him.
– Can Shakhtar relax after such game, if the team has come so far?
– No, we wait for a very tough match. Despite we play in our own backyard, the field is quite neutral, – Lucescu reported.
