CSKA midfielder Nikola Vlasic talked about the performances of the army team in the Europa League. According to him, Viktor Goncharenko’s wards had to gain at least 12 points in this campaign. CSKA footballers were stronger than their rivals, but they were let down by the realization of chances.
“I think we were better, but no goals were given. In most meetings, when it was not possible to win or score points at all, they dominated. Let’s go in order. In the away game against Wolfsberg they were leading, then conceded from the penalty spot. As a result, a draw – 1: 1. The next match, with Dinamo Zagreb: we played with a huge advantage, but again we didn’t take three points. In Holland, Feyenoord scored a lot and deservedly won. However, when we met with him at home, CSKA had a colossal superiority, but again could not realize it. Even though we got the majority after being sent off from the opponent. In the return meeting with Wolfsberg, the opponent’s footballer scored what seemed to me the best goal of his life. We conceded first, tried to recoup, but the ball did not go into the goal. That is, in four cases out of six we had to win “, – Vlašić told the Russian press.
CSKA finished 2020 in second place in the Premier League table. Lagging behind the leading Zenit – 4 points.
