Team Manager Mischa and Nasu attend official pre-match press conference  

An official AFC Champions League 2015 pre-match press conference was held at Saitama Stadium in the afternoon on 7 April ahead of the group stage’s MD4 match against Beijing Guoan Football Club which will be held tomorrow. Urawa Reds Team Manager Mischa and player Daisuke Nasu attended the press conference to answer media questions.

Comment from Team Manager Mischa
We know what we need to do clearly as we had lost our previous three ACL group stage matches. We are in a very difficult situation as though we are immersed in water up to our mouths.

We are required to score nine points by winning our three remaining group stage matches. Looking back at our performance during the last three matches we lost, our team played well enough to have won each match. Though our opponent team tomorrow, Beijing Guoan is a very good team, I don’t think our performance against them during our past away match was inferior to them. However, we made several wasteful mistakes during the past matches and such small mistakes led to the defeats we had. We also didn’t have enough luck on our side. However, as this was the case with us during the past three ACL matches, I am confident that we can win our remaining matches. Though we expect another very difficult match tomorrow, we will do all our best in order to win the match.

Comment from Daisuke Nasu
I know what we have to achieve clearly. It is our absolute requirement that we will win the match tomorrow. However, we should not rush ourselves and it is important to play our own soccer for 90 minutes in order to win the match. For this reason, each player must not lose himself around the ball in order to continue to fight through. I believe we can win the match as long as we can play our style of soccer by ensuring to execute such basics. As it will be a home match, we will put all we have into the match in order to seize a victory as one united team.
