Sergey Kovalchuk, FC Dynamo Brest head coach: "Everyone is well aware that there are no weak opponents in the 3rd Qualifying Round. Therefore, we feel comfortable with the result of the draw. Although it’s a pity that we won't be able to play against Maccabi at home.
As for the opponent, the club is a 23-time champion of Israel, which already speaks volumes. Right now we are collecting details on the team. They started in their domestic league, played the first two rounds in the Champions League, so there is some information about Maccabi.
We are extremely motivated. A victory in this match guarantees a place in the Europa League group stage. We will be preparing for the match, and everything will be decided on the football field."
