The 0-1 defeat of Villarreal reduced Dynamo’s chances of qualifying for the Europa League semi-finals, but the result is still there, and the Croatian champions will try to use it when they are scheduled for the quarter-finals next Thursday. That game will be held in Spain.
If Dynamo succeeds and chooses a position among the last four in the competition, they will receive a substantial cash prize. If you count the first few rounds of the UEFA Champions League, all the Europa League has done so far, Dynamo has earned more than 10 million euros (about 76 million kuna) from European competitions this season. And entering the European top four competition will bring it 2.4 million euros (about 18 million US dollars) in revenue.
For this reason, it is necessary to turn a 0:1 error into a pass by Vilarreal, the team coach Damir Krznar thinks this is not impossible.
“We are optimistic about this return. The first half is the road map, it will be easier when the opponent feels it. The conclusion is that we have reserves, we have a chance. If we see her after Tottenham Hotspur , Why not now? I will answer in Dynamo’s way: “No surrender”, he said after yesterday’s game.
