Metalist's Sosa hails Rapid success

FC Metalist Kharkiv midfielder José Ernesto Sosa was quick to stress the importance of his side's 2-0 win against SK Rapid Wien, for whom Mario Sonnleitner sounded a positive note.

After an opening-day draw at Bayer 04 Leverkusen, FC Metalist Kharkiv midfielder José Ernesto Sosa emphasised the importance of his side's 2-0 victory against SK Rapid Wien to his team's qualification chances in Group K. He is nonetheless anxious for the Ukrainian side improve their finishing if they hope to advance – a hope still shared by Rapid's Mario Sonnleitner despite two consecutive defeats for the Austrian aspirants.

José Ernesto Sosa, Metalist midfielder
Well, I think it was a game where we luckily got the result we wanted, which was a victory, and that gives joy to the people who came here to support us during this important game. We had to try and get a victory today after drawing our first game in Germany against Leverkusen, which was a difficult game. That's why we are happy. Yes, in the first half it was tough to create chances. Whenever we did create a chance, we failed to finish it. It was a difficult game and they defended deeply, which made it hard. In the second half, we managed to go ahead. That made the game a bit easier, allowing us to create chances and have more space.

Mario Sonnleitner, Rapid defender
When you create more chances than your opponents, you have to take the lead. We are confident and we're on a good run, so it's a pity to come off the pitch as losers. There are still four games and 12 points to play for. If we perform well and are more clinical with our opportunities, then it's still all to play for. We are looking forward to [the Leverkusen] game [on 25 October], and [qualification] is still possible.
