Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has summed up the Europa League 1/8 final match against Olympiakos (3-1).
“We started the game very well, really dominated and created a lot of chances. We let them score, trying to play the ball through defenders, but then we responded well and scored two more. Overall, the result is positive but we need to stop making mistakes that cost us goals, it can’t go on like this,” the coach said to BBC.
He elaborated: “We must be completely honest with ourselves. We gave the opponents three chances and they took one, which is punishable at this level. If we want to get to the next level, we have to stop making such mistakes and be more ruthless. When we dominate like that, we have to kill the game.”
“The goals conceded and chances allowed come from us. And that’s good because when we can stop it, we will be stronger. That’s my responsibility,” he added.
