THE PAOK has left behind the big 4-2 win over him Olympiakou in “G. Karaiskakis” and his mind is only on the confrontation with her Aberdeen in Toumba for the 4th matchday of the Europa Conference League groups.
The left back of the “black and whites”, Baba Rahmanrepresented his teammates at the press conference ahead of the match with the Scottish team, saying that for the “doubleheader of the North” it is an important match for qualification, but also for the “battle” for the first place, stressing that for Aberdeen it has been shaped the treaty do or die.
Baba Rahman’s statements in detail:
On the atmosphere in the team after Sunday’s big win and whether he feels tomorrow’s match will be different: “After an impressive win, the team’s morale has risen and we are happy about our image with Olympiakos. This match is a completely different match. It’s a do or die match for Aberdeen, but it’s also important for us in terms of qualifying for the next stage. Aberdeen is playing its game, we want to qualify but also fight for the championship. It is a match that both teams will give everything for the victory».
On whether he considers the match against Olympiakos to be his best overall at PAOK and how much working with Tyson on the left side helps him: “It is difficult to say if it was my best match in PAOK. That 4-2 was a great win but I can’t say it was my best match, I’ve played other good games. He’s definitely one of the very strong Tyson and I match the style of play and I love playing with him on the court. With Tyson it’s different, but with every teammate I’m happy to play. I want to play and improve in every match, I don’t want to set a ceiling for myself and the team».
On whether he feels lucky with the win in Scotland and whether VAR played a role: “We were not lucky in the first match, we reacted after 2-0. Aberdeen may have been unlucky with the penalty in the last minute, but luck is a factor in football. Sometimes they are with you, sometimes against you. I have nothing more to comment on».
On Aberdeen’s strengths and whether a different match awaits: “Aberdeen are a good team in transition, we definitely have to watch out for that. It will definitely be a completely different game and I say this because it will be played in front of our world. The audience in Tuba is very involved and is part of the battle that the players are fighting. It will be a very difficult match for Aberdeen and they will find out at game time».
On what has changed in him in his second term and shows a very good face: “A lot has changed since I was here the first time. There is more quality in the team now, the system implemented by the coach suits me better, everything plays its part. So it’s a combination of all things. We are a tight group, we defend together, we attack together and this is clearly visible on the pitch».
