Фонсека: Мы потерялись тактически

Paulo Fonseca commented on the game against Lyon and has promised that the miner will continue to fight for qualifying from the group.

Head coach of Shakhtar Donetsk Paulo Fonseca after a draw with Lyon admitted that in his career it is the first similar case when his team gets a lead of two goals.

“Indeed, we had the advantage of two goals. All went well: we dominated, played a great first half. The second happened a turning point, when the opponent started to create us difficulties in those areas where he’s strongest, is the last 30 meters to our goal.

We got a little lost tactically and didn’t really know what to do. Of course, full credit to Lyon. We all know how this team is strong and dangerous. It is a pity that he has finished with this result, given that the led with the score 2:0.

Everyone understands how strong the clubs with whom we meet. If to speak about my career, I do not remember that this happened in a match of such level. However, this can happen because of the merits of the opponent and our own mistakes.

The situation in the group? Yes, we beat, it would have been much more balanced and clear. Facing two difficult match against Manchester city. Continue to fight. Nothing else, and absolutely everything is still possible and real. We will try to win and will do anything to get out of the group,” said Fonseca at the post-match press conference.
