Kelznar: Compared with our previous lineup, don’t expect too many changes.
Kelznar: Our strategy is to reduce the last third of the space, and we must not leave room for Moreno here. There are also Bacca and Mano. We expect people on the battlefield. Whoever responds better here and who manages better will have a chance of success.
Kelznar: As long as through Tottenham, I would say they lied to us more. Villarreal is a completely different team. The Tottenham Hotspur team played very short and vertical. The Spaniard liked his possessions very much. His goalkeeper was Tikka Taka football. This kind of team is difficult to play, because sometimes you do not have the ball for a long time, which needs to be endured. We need to convince players that this is not necessarily a bad thing, we need to be patient and close the gap. When preparing for the game, Villarreal had a hard time preparing.
Ma Jie: I told Ivanušec and Franjić that we did our best in all competitions. For me, this season is more than I expected, and I will not change anything.
Ma Jie: We are ready to go further. I won’t say that we are nervous but calm, we can’t wait to play.
Ma Jie: For all of us, playing against Tottenham means that we can play against any team in the world. We are full of confidence. Let’s play the game, I am confident of achieving positive results.
Kelznar: What kind of Dynamo can you expect? A little better adapted to Villarreal. We will have to watch out for Pareja and Moreno going into space, which has brought a lot of turbulence to the best teams in the world. In the offensive phase, our standard game is a solid counterattack, but we will try to threaten Villarreal by possession of the ball.
Kelznar: I talked to Zoran Mamic, but we talked more about the beach we were on. I told him some thoughts, and he replied: “I didn’t come from here.”
Kelznar: Dynamo is no longer a loser. I’m sure that Villarreal will not underestimate us, and their praise will definitely satisfy us.
Kelznar: Gavranovic barely participates in the game, and Petkovic has received two training sessions. Not 100%, we will decide in the dialogue with the doctor. With or without blockade. If he participates in the game, it will be 15 to 20 minutes, but we will talk about it tomorrow.
Ma Jie: We can’t wait for the game, we look forward to it, it will be a reward for what we have achieved. We will not only enjoy, but also pass Villarreal. I believe we can achieve this goal.
