AEK coach Oltra: In the match against Dnipro-1 we have to play well in defense and successfully act in attack

The Cypriot club won the first match with a score of 1:0

Head coach of the Cypriot AEK Jose Luis Oltra commented on the second leg of the 1/16 finals Conference leagues With Dnepr-1.

“Tomorrow there will be a very important game and, above all, it will be important for us, for the people who came to support us, and for the whole of Cyprus. Our opponents are a good team that plays very balanced and tomorrow’s match requires us to play to the maximum, because this is a battle of 180 minutes and now we are only halfway there.”

“Tomorrow will be a very intense game. We have to play tight in defense, not to make mistakes, because it is very important. But we must think not only about defense, but also to act successfully in attack. We can score goals, why not? We will try to play more attacking football.”

“Now we are winning 1-0 after the first match, but tomorrow everything can change. We have a good team, we play well in defense, I like the way the pressure is applied, but we have a very serious opponent in the person of Dnipro-1 – a great team with highly qualified players, so I want everyone to enjoy the game – both the fans and players. We have a very important match ahead of us and we need to give our best.”

“We need to achieve a positive result. We need to play confidently, act consciously. But at the same time, I want to note that we should not take risks and need to find a balance between attack and defense, because we remember that now we are leading and Dnipro-1 needs to score. We will need to realize our moments. We will not sit on the defensive, but we will try to create our chances and realize them. We have a strong team with great performers and it will be difficult tomorrow, but above all, our main goal is to qualify for the next round.”

The first confrontation between SC Dnepr-1 and AEK ended in favor of the Cypriot club – 1:0. Dnipro conceded a goal at the end of the match.
