Sergei Semak: "Two difficult games are in front of us"
All Spanish teams control the ball well and play well at home. Theirs is a strong league and one of the best. So two difficult games are in front of us, let's see how everything goes. I hope we will play better both in terms of quality and condition, we'll get to our level and then, we will be able to play as confidently as possible. 

I think that their situation in the league will not affect the game, on the contrary, not doing the best in the league is very good motivation to get the team playing as successfully as possible in another tournament.

It is always better to play away first, because then it's possible to change the game on your pitch and understanding what is needed. But in any case, there are two matches, so the fact that we will start at Gazprom Arena does not really matter much.
