Ibrahim Tsallagov: "After the red card we did not give up"

The Zenit full-back spoke with us about the home draw with Anzhi.
Ибрагим Цаллагов: «После удаления не опустили рук»

In the first half we did not play well. We too often resorted to long passes. In the second half we did better, but one mistake hurt us, but after the red car we did not give up, we continued to play our game and equalized.

Was the key moment the red card?

I think the whole match was important, in games like this you cannot lose the ball, we should have been more accurate with our passing. This is what dictated the game and therefore the result.

Is the only hope for Zenit that Spartak lose tomorrow?

Unfortunately yes.

How do you expect Spartak will get on against UFA?

We don’t expect anything in particular. We need to play our game and not rely on other team's mistakes. But now it seems we’ll have to rely on them to lose.
