Qarabag 1-0 FCK: Reaction from Kvist and Matic

William Kvist

"It was a hard day at the office! It's a tough team and we knew they were good at home. We had discussed how we should take care of their forward players and that we shouldn’t allow them to attack, so it's obviously bad that they scored their goal on the counter.

“After the goal we came back strong - but that broke away in the second half. I don’t know if it was the heat or what it was, but we were struggling a bit and didn’t push them to the last minute as we should have done.”

The return leg at Telia Park takes place next Wednesday at 20:45. Buy tickets for the match here.

"They played pretty much as we expected and the first hour they didn’t do much in front of goal and only had some counter-attacks.

“This was only the first half and there are still 90 minutes to play. We have the home advantage now where we are much stronger with our fans behind us.

“We also showed against Vardar that we can overturn a 1-0 deficit and we'll be ready to fight 100 per cent to reach the Champions League group stage.”
