This will be the first match for Zorya after a long break, and we want to show ourselves as best as possible, fight for a positive result, which will go to Ukraine’s asset. We watched the last few games of Universitati. I think that the work on studying the opponent has been done with high quality, and our team is fully prepared for the match. We know that our opponent plays combinational, attacking, tactical football. We have very talented young people who are eager to play. A line-up of predominantly young performers has its advantage, as these players always add pace and emotion. In short, the young squad is not a problem for us,” said van Leeuwen.
