Maksim Valadzko: we were to win

BATE defender Maksim Valadzko on the game against FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk (4-1):

- The win was not easy and the score is quite deceptive. Shakhtyor conceded three goals in a short period of time, but did not give in and scored once before the break. We knew the Soligorsk side will use the flanks and I was not the best on the left. Luckily they failed to use my mistakes.

We were preparing very well for the game and were determined to show what we are worth. But of course we did not think we will be leading 3-0 after 25th minute. Sasha Karnitski shot from the middle of the pitch, he knows how to do it. This was a very important goal. And the first goal was discouraging for the opponents.

We did not manage to score against Shakthyor this season. And as we are continuing to fight for gold, we were to win today. We had good finishing. The rain? The conditions are similar for both teams. But I missed the ball a couple of times.
