Andriy PYATOV: “the Playoffs of the Europa League from a single match – perfect”

The Shakhtar goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov commented on the decision of UEFA about plays of League of Europe. The team will need to play the return match with Wolfsburg, and a further stage will consist of one match.

– On the eve of the officially approved date of resumption of the Europa League, which will be played in August. This means that in fact, Shakhtar will be without break and summer vacation. Ready mentally and physically to work without rest?
– I think we’ve rested enough for two and a half months. Of course, unusual, but given the schedule, we are still always in July-August are already beginning to play. Don’t see much of a problem. Moreover, we have a lot of guys who can replace anyone in the team. Well, there is already a specific date, football comes to life and we return to the usual rhythm. God grant that all was in order.

– Potentially a return match with “Wolfsburg” can pass in Ukraine. Will this be an advantage for Shakhtar?
– Of course, even if the match without spectators, the team factor is important. Let not the feelings and confidence that give 30-40 thousand of our fans, but playing at home, you still understand what is necessary to achieve the desired result.

– What do you think about the format of the playoffs from one meeting?
In this situation, the option is ideal. To play twice in such a short time is simply unrealistic. With the terms agreed with the clubs, knowing that otherwise does not work, so no biggie. This is the situation, and all need to get out of it.

The return match of 1/8 final of “Shakhtar” – “Wolfsburg” to be held on 5 or 6 August.
