"At the moment, there is no full joy, because the opponent scored two goals. But tomorrow I’ll look at a really good part of the game. This result is absolutely better than I could imagine before the game, but in one moment, of course, there was a small mistake", – said the coach.
Return match "Liverpool" and "Roma" will be held on May 2 in Rome.
