The Ludogorets coach Stoycho Stoev spoke at a press conference about the Valur rematch.

The Ludogorets coach Stoycho Stoev spoke at a press conference about the Valur rematch. He answered all the important questions.

 ‘We are determined to win and we have the right mindset, just like every other game’, said Stoev. ‘When there is a class difference between the teams, the one with the more capabilities could actually make it harder for themselves. I believe that we will not give Valur the opportunity for them to even hope for the win. My players know how important this game is’, Stoev added.

He said a few things about Valur, too.

 ‘This team can cause trouble mostly during counter attacks. I am certain that they will choose a defensive style of playing and hope for us to make mistakes. We should not give them chance to do it’, said the coach.

Stoev is positive that Ludogorets will not underestimate Valur. ‘We were not able to win the first game and we would have been calmer now. The Iceland team showed that they can make it hard for us to achieve success’.
