22-year-old midfielder said Qarabag left a good impression on him. He said Atletico could not seize the opportunity in the beginning of match. “The rival did everything very well. But we could not seize the chances we had. In the initial minutes we had opportunities for goal. From now on we will not just play, but work from the heart. The situation for us became difficult. But we know that we can go forward. Do we have a problem with scoring a goal? We have to be calm and careful in front of the rival’s gate. We don’t have that.”
