FC BATE Borisov midfielder Dzmitry Baha on the game against FC Vitebsk won 3-1 at Borisov-Arena:
- We expected the game will be difficult. I liked FC Vitebsk, it is a great game which is a bit of an exception from a rule. Usually teams try to play very defensively with a lot of long balls and tackles. But today the opponents tried to play very creative football, passed really well. We had a good impression.
A goal in 4th minute was a blow for us. Luckily we managed to get out of this. This is clear we had the whole game in front of us. And we reacted well to what had happened and equalized. We were sure we would get the result we needed.
The coaching staff made good changes to the team. I will not go into details, but the three midfielders played differently in the second half and the team looked more balanced. But even when the score became 3-1 we did not have any relief. We had a very dangerous opponent to us that kept tension until the very end. I wish Vitebsk success in the upcoming games.
