Head coach Pavol Staňo can already count on the left defender Branislav Sluk, who did not play for a penalty in the first match. Polish Dawid Kurminowski, the top scorer of last year’s Fortuna League with 19 goals, moved to the Danish Aarhus GF will not be available in the offensive.
Nevertheless, the coach clearly stated that the goal on the opponent’s ground is not only progress, but also victory important for the Slovak coefficient.
“We were pleasantly surprised by the first result we have. But we have to be even more vigilant, because the opponent has shown that he knows how to play football. We have to go to the match as if it were 0-0 and do everything to be successful.
We knew who was waiting for us, how they presented themselves. We want to be active and see what the opponent will allow us, resp. we him. The coach of the home team declared that they will do everything to manage the match and we will do everything to be successful there.Read more The Slavs were troubled in Ireland.

We do not take into account the result from the first match and we want to win this match as well, “coach Staňo said before leaving for the venue for the MŠK club website and added:
“Weather can only be a problem if we allow it in our heads. After a week of heat with us, we also played in extreme heat and we managed it. It is part of football life that you have to adapt to the weather, the terrain and the opponent. If I want to be good, we have to do it without hesitation. “
MŠK wing Adrián Kaprálik revealed that every win in Europe counts, resp. that guests certainly do not intend to just defend the lead.
“We have a 5: 1 lead, it’s good, but we want to win, because every victory in Europe counts. They are good on the ball, they had their situations in the first match and could reduce our lead. We must be consistent in defense and not let them into the cheap chances.
They will be open and we could open up chances ahead that we have to use and score. we will not play the bus, we are an offensive team and we will want to win, “said Kaprálik.Read more Gólostroj pod Dubňom. The people of Žilina entered Europe sovereignly
A “chase ride” awaits Trnava in domestic retaliation. The head coach of the “angels”, Michal Gašparík, described the disgrace and lax approach during one fifteen-minute period in which the guests collected goals after gross individual mistakes as the reasons for the embarrassing loss in the first match.
Subsequently, however, they managed to score two goals and, according to the coach, they will manage the home revenge and move on to the next phase: “It’s just about us. I think that at home we are able to manage the match, win and secure our progress. “
Spartak captain Martin Mikovič expressed the same opinion after the first duel: “We will go into retaliation with the proviso that we must do Most, he will ideally score the leading goal as soon as possible. I believe it will be much easier at home. It will be played on natural and watered grass, a faster surface. “
The duel at the Anton Malatinský Stadium has a kick-off at 20.45 on Thursday and will be led by referees from Slovenia. It will also be broadcast live by RTVS.
