We conclude with a short summary: view here.
CONCLUSION: “FAILING OURSELVES”
A draw in an away match in the round of 16 of the Europa League; that’s not so bad at first glance. But given the game image, it was not surprising that there was anything but satisfaction in the Rotterdam camp after Shakhtar – Feyenoord (1-1) on Thursday.
“We have sold ourselves short,” said Arne Slot. A conclusion that, given the odds ratio, could not be disputed. “Although I thought we were a little too satisfied with the fact that we were better in the first half. After a conversion on our left, we were much more dangerous in the second half and we also had chances.
It was waiting for a Rotterdam goal, but to Slot’s dismay, the 1-0 fell on the other side fifteen minutes before the end. “A very unfortunate goal, although at the time it was not a huge necessity to give away a corner. We also need to improve in hitting the ball before the opponent. That is also the only thing I can accuse the boys of in terms of football content.
Although Feyenoord came to the same level via Ezequiel Bullaude and thus averted defeat, Slot had a hard time living with the end result. “When you are so dominant… The opponent has barely been in our half. Then it is extremely disappointing that this match ends 1-1.
NO WINNER IN WARSAW…
Relief from Bullaude’s late goal, but there was more to this! In the absolute final phase, Geertruida hit the target, but he turned out to be offside. With this draw, Feyenoord denies itself the chance to defend a lead in Rotterdam next week.
