Midfielder of Sevilla and Ukraine national team reflect on the match against Shakhtar
- I think 2-2 is a good result for us. In the first half, Shakhtar played better, but after the break we seized the initiative. It’s very nice that the supporters welcomed me and saw me off like that. Thank you all. I really like Lviv! During the match, I tried not to give away my emotions, as I had to concentrate. If we pay attention to everything, we just won’t be able to focus on the game. Although, the passions ran wild actually. I would like the 2007 outcome of the meeting Shakhtar vs Sevilla be repeated for us to advance further. In general, Shakhtar have not changed since I left Dnipro. They have some fast Brazilians, and the tough holding area. Shakhtar played well today, just as Sevilla did in the second half. The return leg will be much more interesting.
