We knew that DAC would give a completely different performance than against Trenčín, where nothing went right for him. Krstovič showed quality, it’s a promising player, excellent in the penalty area. We were weak in the penalty area twice in the beginning and the opponent punished us for that. We replaced two players at half-time. Ďuro Kucka came to stir up the game. Later we played with three attackers again. The second half was much better from our side, we were more dominant, but we had several half chances and not a howl they chase the opportunity to score. We have to convert the chances we already had better. As the end of the match approached, our inaccuracies in the centers increased, the unfavorable condition tied our legs. The result is not what we wanted, but I praised the players for the second half, they went all the way. Despite the quality of the opponent and the coach, the distribution of points is small for us, but it is fair.” Adrian Guľa, coach of D. Stredy: “We saw a good match. The entrance helped us, we quickly took a 1:0 lead, which stunned Slovan. However, he didn’t give us anything in the second half. He was dominant, he showed quality. We, in turn, demonstrated a different team spirit and cohesion than in the previous duels. From my side, tactically we wanted to keep certain elements in the match. We managed that until the goal. However, we must be more accurate and productive in counterattacks. We proved that we can keep up even with a stronger opponent. We have a lot to work on and I’m glad that we played a solid and high-quality match.” Photo gallery for the article Number of photos: 11 Author: © Zoznam Source: TASR
