“I was watching the return game in Baku from arena. The women won in three parts. The competed as best as they could. The fate of the game was solved in the golden set. Though in the beginning of golden set Azerrail was ahead, unfortunately we have lost I think by the end of set the players were psychologically defeated. It led to the loss in general score.”
According to Garayev, another reason of defeat was holding less games as a team: “Our national championship kicked off in the end of December. So far Azerrail played less games. Whereas other teams have already played over 15 games. I think playing less games also has huge impact on such performance of Azerrail. But it is not right to blame players or trainer for that.”
