BRATISLAVA – The footballers of Slovan Bratislava want to torment the favored PAOK Thessaloniki in the F-group duo of the European Conference League 2021/2022 and grab a point for it. The Slovak champion entered the newly created competition two weeks ago with a home loss 1: 3 with FC Copenhagen, on Thursday from 21.00 CEST he will present himself on the ground of a Greek team, which he has pleasant memories of.

Slovan’s cabin is gradually starting to live another big European match. “The duel in Senica was important for us, where we needed to kick and break waiting for the victory. Only after that we started thinking about PAOK. We are concentrated, but we are also looking forward to it. Most of us played in Thessaloniki two years ago. We know what we are waiting for us there, we know the playground, the background of the stadium, the environment, ” said Yuri Medvedev, who two years ago experienced one of the brightest moments of his career so far at the Thessaloniki stadium in Toumba.

With 38 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 – 0 lead as Paschalakisa flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. Thanks to his goal, Slovan took the lead 1: 0, while at that time the rule that a goal from the opponent’s field had a higher price still applied. This moment directed the people of Bratislava behind the process. “It was very difficult there, they have passionate and noisy fans. We experienced a stormy atmosphere there, I don’t think it should be different now. When they say PAOK, I remember the joy with the team after the goal, and the huge enthusiasm after the final Some said that the defender’s help helped me, but a repeated shot showed that it was a clean shot. I appreciate him, “ admitted the extreme defender of Slovan.

However, Medvedev realizes that it would not be good to cling to memories two years ago. “Knowing that we eliminated them two years ago can help us in some way to prepare for the match. But expecting that it will automatically be the same now would be absolutely wrong. It will definitely be a completely different match, and we can’t live on it, I was looking at the PAOK lineup recently, some players stayed, others changed, the coach is different, they will definitely remember what happened last time, we have to be absolutely responsible, focused, follow tactical instructions, and run a lot “I believe that when we go full and complete our tasks on the field, we have a chance to score,” concluded Medvedev.
