Oleksandr Kucher commented on the Shakhtar’s win over rapid.
“Rapid – physically strong and well prepared team. Expected that there will be a lot of joints and struggle. Hard to say, allowed some mistakes and losing the ball because of the wet field… still, the Austrians were pressing us, went forward, tried to recoup, because of this, there were a lot of fighting. To give no one wanted.
Well, that kept the winning score. Recent matches Rapid Wien showed that they are able to snatch points from an opponent at the last minute. In any case, we can not relax, because the second leg will be difficult,” – said Oleksandr Kucher.
We will remind, in Donetsk Shakhtar got a narrow win over rapid Wien in the first leg play-off round of Champions League qualification.
