We will win the match to move up to the next step-Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic the day before the Yamazaki Nabisco Cup 2nd Sec of 1st round match against Montedio Yamagata

The match we will play will also be of extreme importance to us. We won the first match with the result of 2 to 0. However, the match we will play will not be easy. If we think of the match lightly and think it would be easy for us to win as we won the previous one with the result of 2 to 0, then our opponent will beat us. For this reason, it is necessary for us to approach the match with fresh minds. We have analyzed the match Mondtedio Yamagata played against Fukuoka earlier. We have played against Yamagata when we had a practice match. We have also played against them in a J. League official match as well as in the Nabisco Cup. I think I see the team manager of Montedio Yamagata more often than my wife (lol). Our team plays against the team that many times. I assume that Yamagata will have two tall FW players tomorrow as they really need to win against us. I think they will pass the ball to the two FW players and try to score the first goal at an early stage. Against such a play style, we must respond in a calm manner.
As you are aware, if we can win the match or will be able to move up to the next step, we will be fighting against Omiya Ardija as our next opponent. If this will be the case, the match will be of such excitement not only for our supporters but also for the people of Saitama. We would love to win tomorrow’s match so that we can play in the next one.
