Vladimír Weiss senior, Slovan coach: “It was a difficult match in my head. We wanted to win, but we had to play sensibly and not open the game. We had one or two half-chances. We were a little scared up front, we didn’t have the freshness and strength to score a goal. It was a very good performance in defense. The clean sheet is excellent, it’s a pity we didn’t score a goal. I want to praise the boys for their performance and determination, there was a little lack of quality. “
Yuri Medvedev, defender of the Slavs: “It’s a shame at the end of the first half. I wanted to put it on the back pole, half a meter was missing. It was a tough match, PAOK played well. We took a quality robot, we worked, in the end we ran out of strength. “
Vladimir Weiss Jr., Slavic midfielder: “We knew the quality of PAOK on the ball. We didn’t want to go to press. We covered the space very well and we didn’t let them go for anything more serious. We went into a match saying that we wanted to win. Despite the draw, we still live until the last round. “
The fast-paced opening ten minutes brought the Slavs the first chance, when after a nice combination he got to the Weiss shot, but Paschalakis had no problems with it. A free kick just outside of the visitors’ penalty area after 80 minutes could have resulted in another goal, but Chovan got a hand out and tipped the ball over the bar.
After these two situations, the Slavs focused more on the cautious defense, not letting the Greeks into dangerous opportunities. The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 31 minutes, Akpoma and Sidcley broke through the center and found himself alone with the keeper.
The ball got to the center of Biseswar, but he sent it high above the goal. The first half ended the chance for Medveděva, who fled after Weissa’s pass on the right side of the field, but sent his shot next to the post.
Immediately after the change of sides, the guests took the action on the right side, but the defense of Slovan just before Chovan sent the ball to safety.
The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 60 minutes, Zmrhal broke through the center and found himself alone with the keeper.
The conclusion already belonged to the Greeks. At first, he didn’t manage to beat Chovan Sidcley, and after him, the substitute Šwiderski fired right next to him.
At the very end, Kašia twice shone with a perfect defensive intervention and the score did not change even after two home helmsman turns.
