The Russian spoke after a great showing in Seville
Denis Cheryshev is in great form for Valencia CF, and he was vital at the Benito Villamarin. The Russian scored one goal and set up Gameiro for the second, as well as hitting the crossbar. Speaking after the game, he analysed a wild match in Seville.
"We have to look at the game positively after having gone two goals down. We generated a lot of chances on goal; we need to correct mistakes from set pieces, but we've taken a big step towards the final -even though the second leg will be difficult," he said.
"We believed right through to the end, and we had clear chances in the first half. We generated football and chances, which is especially noteworthy after the effort we made in the game against Barcelona at the Camp Nou."
"I believed that we could finish off the move in which Gameiro set me up, and I threw everything I had at it. Later on I had another clear chance, but then Gameiro scored the second goal and so we can leave here happy."
