According to him, the team played low, as after the 78th minute they were playing in the minority. Yaroslav Rakitsky retired.
“I would not say that we fought back … We acted reliably in defense. Physically, there was no freshness in the second half. I would call this victory absolutely deserved. I’m glad for Lovren, who managed to score an important goal. After that, the ending became calmer, ”Semak said.
