I’m happy we have won this match. This win opened the door to the quarter final of the League to us. We were good in both attack and the defense, scored easily. In the second half we gave BSU opportunity to decrease the difference, complicated things for a bit, but it is an away celebration that counts.
Vlado Sola, head coach of Beijing Sport University
Congrats to Motor for an amazing game, especially in the first half. They are way to good for us, especially in the defense. They rapidly came to a solid goal difference and it was a bit frustrating as nothing was going good for us - not the attack, nor the defense. We obviously still can’t play more than one match in a row on a high level, but we will work on that. I want to wish my players safe flight home and a Happy New Year, and to our opponents, good luck in the continuance of the competition.
Stevan Vujovic, player of Motor Zaporozhye
We are satisfied to win. It turned out it wasn’t as easy as we expected, BSU fought until the end. Congrats to them for a good match, for us it’s important we celebrated.
Jangcheng Wang, player of Beijing Sport University
Compared to last time with Motor, we received too much goals in the first half. We will try to continue to play like we did that time against Motor.
