Celta’s mentor commented on the meeting with Shakhtar

- Are you satisfied with how your players have proved themselves today?
- Yes, I liked the way my players operated. Of course, the result is not the best, but we created many close chances. Perhaps somewhere, we were lacking a finishing pass or a well-placed finish, but overall, we produced not a bad performance. Iago Aspas and Gustavo Cabral proved themselves greatly. I'm also pleased with how the team took this fixture. What we were lacking tonight was scoring a goal.

- Celta have suffered a third defeat in a row. Are they going to win?
- We have the strength to win. Given our match vs Atletico as well as this one, I am optimistic about the future. I hope that in the second leg in Ukraine, we will be able to achieve the desired result.

- Is it possible to count on succeeding in the second leg in Kharkiv?
- Shakhtar is a very good team, who accustomed to claiming victories. Sometimes, the Pitmen change their playing style, like today. But we are also strong and look to a better result in the second leg.

- Your players have not caused enough troubles for Andriy Pyatov, have they?
- Right, we lacked accuracy in playing passes and shots. But this is football. In Ukraine, we will try to improve these components in order to succeed.
