Dynamo Head Coach answered journalists' questions after a blowout win over Arsenal (5:1).
— During the first half, we completely controlled the game. We scored great goals in a different way. For 80 minutes we didn't relax our hold and scored the fifth goal in the second half. Unfortunately, we allowed the opponent to score just in the end of the encounter.
We finished the first round with 29 points, which is six points more than we earned in the second round of the previous season. The progress is visible — we are on the right track. It is important that we play our own football. I am happy that we finished the first round with such a result.
— Why did the team lose concentration in defense in the last minutes and conceded a goal?
— We played passively when conceding this goal. We will analyze the episode and learn a lesson from it.
— The team played a brilliant first half. What was the focus on during the break?
— We didn't make any tactical changes during the break. We just explained how to play in the second half, and the guys did everything.
— Denis Makarov got an injury at the end of the match. How serious is it?
— It is difficult to say. First of all, he need to undergo a medical examination. I hope it's nothing serious.
