The head coach of Dnipro-1 commented on the results of the first match of the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

The result of the match against Slavia was very unsatisfactory before the second leg. This is how the head coach of the Ukrainian club, Oleksandr Kucher, commented on the heavy defeat of Dnipro-1 in the first match of the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

According to the specialist, his wards were afraid of the opponent, began to make many mistakes and did not fulfill the game plan.

“Of course, we didn’t do our plan today. We had to play the ball, get into the zones. Why did the guys get scared, they started to kick forward and give the ball to the opponent, and because of this we didn’t get the first goal . There was some kind of chaos in the first minutes and a lot of mistakes: it’s hard to play today, because the guys still haven’t recovered from the consequences of the poisoning, there was a big two-day transition , and it’s clear that the players didn’t recover their strength.

– Considering today’s result, do you see any chances in the second leg?

– The result, of course, was not in our favor – a very unpleasant score before the second leg. Now the main thing is to get the boys back, first of all, psychologically and physically, because we have a championship game in two days, and after that we will think about the second leg. We need to have time to recover. Again today there will be a long journey, then we will play immediately.

– How badly was Maxim Tretyakov injured?

– We need to do a medical examination. His knee was bad, it could be a serious injury, but you need to do an MRI to make final conclusions.

– What do you see as the main difference between the opponents in today’s game?

“We understood that Slavia is very strong physically, imposes a lot of struggle, and in this aspect, of course, we lost today,” Kucher was quoted by Dnipro-1’s official website.

Recall that Dnipro-1 lost 0:3 to Czech Slavia in the first match of the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
