Next was press conference with home team head coach Luchano Treni.
- We held the top position in the group, but this match was really hard for my team. We expected “Bunyodkor” to play attacking football today, but they did even better. Anyway our keeper did well, as always. Today he was real team captain.
We also have created enough scoring chances, especially in starting minutes of the second half. Bat Ian Ramsey, Dario Vidosic and Fabian Barbiero failed to realize their chances.
- Now you have advanced to round of 16. Will you hold the top position in the group?
- We are going for the top position only. After failing domestic competitions, we gave all attention to the Champions League. We will play finishing match of the group stage in Japan. It would be not easy to win in Osaka, but we want to be number one in the group.
We have only one problem – we have finished our domestic league a weak ago and I don’t which games we would use as preparation for coming champions league game. You know, it’s difficult to beat strong rival if you have no playing practice.
