Concise News reports that the Brazilian’s ball for Marcos Alonso’s late winner against Slavia Prague means he now has seven assists to his name. No one has more in the Europa League this season. Added to those are the three goals he has scored.
Willian says, “Fortunately I made a good delivery to Marcos and he scored a goal for us,” says Willian as he reflected on how the first leg panned out. He had earlier hit the bar with a fierce strike.
“Now we have to think about the next game and this win was a big boost for the next game, so let’s be ready for that.”
Willian continues: “The game was very difficult. They have a good team.
“It was difficult to press them high because when we tried, they kicked long balls and attacked with the full-backs at the same time. We tried to press them as high as we can, but it was difficult. I think we did a great job and we won the game. The most important is to win and we did.
“At least in the second half we scored the goal. It was a great result. It was a good ball for him and he scored the goal. Now we have the game at home. Today we did a big boost for the next game.”
