Head coach of Shakhtar Donetsk Mircea Lucescu commented on the first game of the 1/2 final of the Europa League against Sevilla.

“The scoreline reflects today’s game. We had a significant advantage in the first half, created good pressure on the opponent, a lot of chances, we carried out counterattacks. But, unfortunately, we lacked the last pass“, – quotes the coach of “miners“ official website of the club.

“The first half could have ended with the score 4:1, we were more focused in the final phase of attack. In the second half Sevilla played better, especially in the beginning. Sorry, we have handed over physically and began to make mistakes in defense, especially in the left zone. It has a lot of confidence. We improperly conducted counterattacks. Affected, probably, and lack of experience.

They say that Shakhtar is an experienced team… But let’s not forget that Sevilla is involved in a different League, often hold matches with real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico. We have many players just starting to play. This Kovalenko, Malyshev, Ferreira – performers, which at this level rarely go out.

Overall I am satisfied with the match, as is probably pleased with what he saw and the audience. The score was 2:2 gives us a chance, we are playing well on the road. Try to recover all the players for the return leg in Seville,“ – concluded Lucescu.
