“Levante are a very experienced team that plays a very organised game,” began Berdyev in reflection.
“They did very well in defence, created much danger for us too.
“We had prepared for a really tough game, we knew Levante’s squad are at a good level and we sincerely believe that they have proven again to be a great team.”
