Asteras will have an advantage-it will play before its fans.

Head coach of FC Inter Kakhaber Tskhadadze answered journalists' questions before the second leg of the second qualifier round of the Europa League against Greek Asteras.

"I hope that like the first match, the second will also be interesting", the coach said. "Now we have more information about the opponent than we had before the match and we had the opportunity to prepare better. We will try to score by all means since the match played as guest is taken for two.

Did I like some of the Asteras players? Every player is dangerous in this team. Unfortunately, the opponent managed to score in Baku. We will try to prevent this in the  future.

There is always certain excitement before the match beginning from massage specialists and to coaches. The most important is that this should not affect the match. The one who overcomes this state quicker will find it easier to play.

Will the heat and unusual natural lawn be an obstacle? It is also hot in Baku. As for the court, the main thing is that it must be smooth. The court on which we trained yesterday was not ideal. I think the central lawn will be better.

Asteras will have an advantage-it will play before its fans.

Greece is a wonderful country. But it is a bit hot here (smiles)".
