Dnipro vs Shakhtar: player comments

Players of the Donetsk team have reflected on a match with Dnipro.

Wellington Nem, Shakhtar midfielder:

- Let's be honest: we have had a bad game. Now we need to analyse this defeat and our own mistakes to avoid that in a meeting with Anderlecht. We cannot say that we are tired after the match in the Europa League. We had enough time to recover. Of course, the condition of the pitch was poor, but it doesn’t justify us in any way. We prepared for the fact that it would be difficult. However, Dnipro played well, and we didn’t.

Eduardo, Shakhtar forward:

- Perhaps Shakhtar suffer such defeats once a decade. Today, Dnipro played much better than us. After such matches, one needs to pay attention to mistakes and forget them. Prior to that, everything was great for us, the future games are important too, so we hope only for the better. Of course, there is fatigue after the Europa League, but it's not an excuse. We will improve and show our best qualities.
