The head coach of “Zenith” Sergey Semak commented on the victory over “Ufa” in the RPL, which allowed to increase the gap in the table, bbabo.net correspondent reports.
The leaders of the tournament won with a score of 2:0, and Kazakhstani Nuraly Alip entered the field for the first time in the Russian Premier League.
- It was a tough game, but completely under our control until the second goal scored. After that, unfortunately, we allowed the opponent to create two sharp chances at our goal, although in fairness it should be noted that after 2:0 we could score one or two goals in fast attacks. Space began to appear, and from the point of view of creation, it became easier to play, because before the goal was scored, in the first 60 minutes, it was difficult to break into the defense of the opponent, who defended very deeply both in quantity and quality. Naturally, there were not so many scoring chances, but, in principle, an absolutely deserved victory. Congratulations to the team and fans. We will prepare for the next match, - the press service quotes the coach.
- The lead over Dynamo is five points after their defeat in the derby. How would you rate the championship race?
- There are 10 more rounds ahead - that's 30 points. What is five points if 30 are played ahead? For you, maybe already, but for us, five points means two rounds. Therefore, I do not think that this is the reserve that allows us to calmly prepare for the next match.
Let's add that earlier, the Kazakhstani came out in the first team for the cup match, and Zenit won the meeting devastatingly.
