“Obviously we lost the goal after just three minutes," Nemanja explained. "I believe we had a lot of possession throughout the game but we couldn’t really score. I think today we had so many crosses from set pieces and we should have done better. But overall, we were the better team but we didn’t get three points.
“I don’t remember having such an easy game at the back. We had so many crosses and they didn’t look very dangerous. But we had lots of possession in the final third but the pass wasn’t there. We had so many crosses from set pieces and we didn’t take the chance to score from any of them.”
