Guilherme: In matches like this, the goalkeeper always has a lot of work

Lokomotiv goalkeeper Marinato Guilherme discusses the draw with Atletico (0:0) in the Gameweek 4 of the Champions League group stage.

- We got a draw with Atletico again. We did not win, did not allow them to win either. Is the result good?

- Yes, especially in Madrid. We are playing with Atletico again and we know how difficult it is against them away. We didn't show the perfect game today. There was a little lack of calmness and confidence when we had the ball. Atletico constantly pressed, but they let us play. In the defence, we were almost perfect.

- But you helped a lot.

- Yes, in the Champions League against Atletico, the goalkeeper must be ready. This is a top club in Europe. There is a lot of work in every match against such teams. It's good that I made saves and helped the team get points.

- In the second half we played as number two, but tried to intercept the ball much more aggressively. Did Nikolic ask to play tougher?

- He said that you don't need to press every time - you need to feel the moment. In the first half, Atletico had more control over the game than in the second. We achieved a good result - a draw in Madrid with Atletico. It is very difficult. Everyone was great last night.

- At the end of the game Krychowiak and Ze Luis had chances.

- You get moments like this when there is luck. Luck was on our side today. Atletico scored a goal. If not for the VAR, it would have been counted.

- Russian clubs play unsuccessfully in European competitions. We have a special responsibility. Are you proud to represent the whole country?

- Absolutely. It's time to have a good Champions League. We are here for the third year in a row, we have enough experience to play against such teams. There is an important game against Salzburg next week. The question of our place in Europe will be decided. Why not dream about the Champions League round of 16? We need to fight and be confident.
