Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca summarized the results of the Champions League match against Feyenoord.

Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca commented on the victory over Feyenoord (1:2) in group match of the Champions League.

“A difficult game as we expected. Fantastic atmosphere. Feyenoord was very strong in the first ten minutes of the game, and they managed to score. After their goal we started to dominate, tried to be all the time with the ball, this was before the removal of Rakitskiy. Very difficult to play when you have one player less.

The expense, no doubt, could be a draw, but we were given until the last minute to the last second. I can not mention our rival Feyenoord was the best team that brought us a lot of difficulties, but we deserved this victory.

We had a certain strategy to this game. It is clear that the goal Feyenoord have slightly changed our game plan. But when the score became 1:1, we are well aware that they will risk, they will open up space for our attacks than we used to,” the expert said at the postgame press conference.
