Lucescu: “I feel that Club Brugge is in a better rhythm compared to Dynamo

The coach of Kiev recognized the solidity of the opponent.

The head coach of Dynamo Kiev Mircea Lucescu summed up the results of the match against Club Brugge in the Europa League. He is disappointed that the Kyiv side conceded a home goal. However, the Romanian specialist hopes that in the next match Dynamo will be much better prepared than the Belgian opponent.

“A 0: 0 result would be clearly better for us than 1: 1. As I explained to my players, the most important thing in European competition is not to miss it at home. The score 1: 0 was the best result for us. But, unfortunately, we made a mistake in the standard, did not play to the end and conceded a goal.

But we still have a week to prepare. It is felt that the opponent is in the best rhythm of the game compared to us. We played only one official game, while the opponents have already played 6-7 games in the championship. They are on the move now. But I hope that in a week we will look better.

We played against a team that is unconditionally in the lead in the Belgian Championship, 13 points ahead of the nearest rival. This is a very solid, good team “, – said Lucescu to the club press service.


The return match between Club Brugge and Dynamo will take place on 25 February.
