“We can expect a match in which we enter with a different psychology. We know what awaits us tomorrow, we have to be disciplined to fulfill all the tasks in the game and of course most importantly in the field to look like a team. We want to play a good match, which is now most important to us,” said Dinamo coach Ivaylo Petev.


“Soudani will not play because he is not yet ready. All others are willing, and in excellent condition, but after tonight’s training we will decide who will play. Of course, in other absences will be suspended Stojanovic and injured Antolić, Lešković and Goncalo,” added Petev.
