The coach of the Swiss commented on the defeat by Shakhtar Donetsk.
The head coach of Basel Marcel Koller summed up the match of the Europa League quarterfinals, where his team lost to Shakhtar
“We knew before the game that the miner – skilled, fast team. Very skilled players who run quickly to attack. Shakhtar was better. But we had one or two things that we brought to completion. Too bad that very quickly conceded the first goal. Miner really quickly ran to the attack and played confidently with the ball.
We played quite carefully. Conceded the goal from the standard, so you had to attack a lot. Knew that the miner will quickly contractabout. Shakhtar have fast players, it really is their great advantage. Tried to play compact, but Shakhtar showed its strengths. I’m sure with inter they will create one time or another and probably will score”
Koller also gave a forecast, who can go to the finals vs Shakhtar, or inter.
“I believe that Shakhtar’s speed will give inter problems. It’s two great teams. We also know that inter defends well and has good players in attack. I think someone will win with a minimum score. But it is difficult to assess who is stronger,” said Koller.
Recall, Shakhtar defeated Basel in the Europa League quarterfinals.
