Fizuli Mammadov: We Have To Play Smart
Neftchi PFC head coach Fuzuli Mammadov commented on the draw in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. He said that the main advantage of our team is to play at home:
"Every opponent is dangerous. It is true that Shkupi may look weak on paper compared to other competitors. But our main advantage is that we will play at home. You need to prepare specifically for each opponent. Our players must be fully tuned to this game. You can't go wrong. Our players should not be bored, but not too relaxed. We must be both careful and free. You can't go wrong, especially in defense. Because the fate of the stage is a game. Of course, we must attack, but not forgetting the defense. Any mistake in defense or center can lead to failure. We have to play smart and win. "
The match between Neftchi and Shkupi (Northern Macedonia) will take place on August 27 at Bakcell Arena.
