After the break, important opportunities were missed from both sides, and the match between FCSB and Vitoria Guimaraes ended indefinitely, points 0-0.
The return game between Vitoria Guimaraes and FCSB will take place on Thursday, August 29 in Portugal.
Captain Mihai Pintilii is convinced of the chances of qualifying for the Romanian Vice Master. Still the same, but he was not impressed by Vitoria Guimaraes. The midfielder was disappointed with the high chances Florin Coman missed during the first half of the match played in Giurgiu. Too bad the first half, Coman had two chances. I'm glad we didn't score goals and hope to qualify for the move. Chances are 50-50. I am not afraid, it is important that we had a good match and I hope we regulate our gaming relationships. If we have the gift tonight, I say we're on the right track. At least let's make up for it. I tried to relax the atmosphere a little, it is important to form a family, a united group after the so-called scandal. We stopped to talk, talk more, meet. We have a very good chance, we have to score points there. "Pintilii told ProTV.
FCSB financier Gigi Becali said on Thursday after a draw between FCSB and Vitoria Guimaraes in the Europa League playoffs. That he is confident of his team's chances of qualifying further.
Becali believes that the Portuguese team does not rise to the FCSB level, but the latter consider themselves already qualified in the Europa League teams: "Guimaraes are weaker team than Mlada Boleslav. I'm a team that can't score. We will beat them 2-0 there. It's too slow, they have no values, no technology, nothing. They can't beat us. This moment is easier. Those from Mlada could still make empty, they cannot empty. We play with them for three days, they don't give us a shot. When the ball was on them, two-way traffic was upon us. If these can mark us empty then you cut my head. We are three classes above them, even with violence. They have no speed to play. 99 percent qualification, one percent bad luck. We are qualified in groups. Is this a law that will strike us? ”
