Nicolas Lombaerts: “That was a simple match”

Zenit`s central defender commented on the match with AEK at Olympic Stadium in Athens.

- The match didn`t give me any particular problems. Of course there was the episode with the penalty kick, which could have changed the course of the match, but our opponent couldn`t put it away, and we took advantage of our chances to score, which made it easy for us to finish off the match. I`m really proud that our club managed to win six times in six matches in the Europa League group stage. We`ll leave for vacation in a good mood.

Are you happy with the fact that thanks to this victory Anderlecht made it to the next round of the Europa League?
- Ya, of course I`m happy, but not Belgian football, not for Anderlecht. Honestly, I think Anderlecht just got lucky today.

Was it really hard to play in today`s match?
- The match was simple. Our opponent didn`t cause us any trouble, we defended well, and stopped all their attacks and worked well together. I`m satisfied both with our victory and the way in which we got it.
