And he said in the press conference that took place after the end of the match in the club’s press conference hall :" These kinds of matches are always difficult for the two teams, and i did not like the way we started the match with where we received a goal and we could have received another goal, and in the second half we controlled more the performance and the match and it was possible to score before the goal and we had to be less rushed in dealing with the match and be accurate, There was some fatigue on the players and Al Gharafa left us spaces to move in "

The coach said : " We were surprised by the strong entry of the Al Gharafa team since the beginning of the match and was able to present a distinguished first half and it was worth to advance with a goal and he deserved to score a second goal, and if it happened, it would have been difficult for us and in the second half our chances were more, but we lacked accuracy in dealing with these opportunities and we must say that we played many matches in a short time, which clearly affected the players' performance "

Lamouchi continued by : " It is important that the team can return to the result in this way, and we focused on that this is a cup match and in such matches it is not possible to surrender throughout the mcth , and now we have the final match and it will be a different match and we will face Al Sadd again, and it will not be like previous match ".
