Anji head coach Ruslan Agalarov:
- We expected a mistake from Krasnodar. However, the opponent made not mistake in the defense. Following the second conceded goal our team stopped playing. Yes, we were aware of the way Krasnodar performs, created several scoring chances in the first half, made breakthroughs in the second. But I repeat, Krasnodar made nor mistake today.
- Are the conceded goals the result of your individual mistakes or the skillfulness of Krasnodar players?
- When kicking from the spot, that led to the second goal, there was an individual mistake: the marker had to play with the rival until the end… But Smolov is in good physical state now, he is on the top position of high scorers` list for a reason.
