Lucescu: "We can compete with Barcelona"

Speaking at a press conference after the Europa League qualifier against Sivasspor yesterday, Shakhtar Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu commented on Friday's European Super Cup game against Barcelona:

"We had a good game for more than an hour and then the team probably cooled off thinking about the upcoming hard game against Barcelona.

I am glad for the players, the president and the club that we will not only be there as spectators. Of course, I would like to win this trophy once again, like I did with Galatasaray before.

It is a very important title, but it will also be very difficult to win it. We are very aware of that. I think our game is close to Barcelona's game, we can compete with them. We should remember the games against Barcelona in last season's Champions League group stages. Their last-minute win in the home game and our 3-2 win at the Camp Nou..."
