Edgar Malakyan: "We didn't come just to participate in the match"

In the second qualifying round of the UEFA Conference League, Ararat plays with the Polish Slask.

The first match between the teams took place in Gyumri, ending with the victory of the Wroclaw team - 4:2։ The second match will be held on July 29.

On July 28, a pre-match press conference of Ararat football player Edgar Malakian was held at the Wroclaw City Stadium.

The midfielder of our team noted that they did not come to Poland just to participate in the match․

"True, there is a difference of the two goals, but we will fight for the victory. We came here for this, and not just take part in the game and come back," Malakyan said.

- What are the strengths of Slask and especially which of the players should be feared?

- I think that there are good players, both individually and as a good team. You can't be afraid of anyone, but you need to be attentive to the whole team.

- In the first game, you and your teammates easily dribble the opponent's players. Do you agree that the players of Ararat surpass the opponent with individual skill? Will it be decisive in the second leg?

- I don't think that we are superior, I can say that it will be wrong if I answer this question. I will just note that Slask is a worthy opponent. We showed that we are also a good team and we can play against them, and not only against them. I think we have shown that we are able to participate in such games and achieve good results.
