Comment of the Holger OSIECK(Team-Manager)
We really wanted to win today and prepared well for this game but unfortunately we lost. We are very disappointed. We already knew before the game that Kashima Antlers was a tough team. They showed good performance today. On the other hand, we could not show our style, especially in the first half. I think the players were a little bit nervous and this lead to lack of accuracy in passing. I think this is the reason things did not go the right way for us in the first half.
In the second half, our strategy was to use the field wide. We had the higher ball possession given that they were down to 10 men. The opponent mostly pulled back and tried to score from counter attacks. Unfortunately, that worked out regarding today’s game.
