Igor Leshchuk

Dynamo goalkeeper Igor Leshchuk shared his expectations of the Betcity Russian Cup semifinal fixture and invited the fans to fill the stands of VTB Arena.

— One of the most important matches of the season will be held on Tuesday. What is the team’s moral state after the defeat?

— We had a sincere conversation inside the team. I think everyone has drawn conclusions after three consecutive defeats. We have to come to this game and give all on the pitch.

— Our team has already played against Alania at the training camp. What are your impressions about the opponent?

— They are a good team with fiery eyes. Alania players are very emotional.

I saw how creative they were by taking set-pieces. Yes, this team has an unusual style, but in general there is nothing special. We just need to be fully concentrated on every set-piece. In the match against Zenit, both the wall and the goalkeeper had to wait for a shot at any moment. The performance was good. When one or two players ran past the ball, the goalkeeper relaxed a little and reacted late to the shot. I think that the distance was not critical to concede a goal.

— Dynamo are favorites of the semifinal match. Does this status put pressure on the team?

— It doesn't put pressure at all. I don't think about it. We just have to win after such defeats in the Premier League. We have to come and play to the fullest.

— A lot of fans are expected at the match. What can you tell them?

— Come to the game, and we will do everything to make up for poor results in previous matches and get to the Cup final.
