Post match

Samvel Darbinyan, Mika head coach

We did everything possible to win today. Helsingborgs is a good team, they played fast and easy and they managed to use our mistakes. We had the opportunities to score in first half and if could do that, everything might went to another way. We tried to change the game in second half and we made several substitutions, but these measures didn't help us. Anyway, I think the score is equal to game.

Bo Nilsson, Helsingborgs head coach

We arrived in Yerevan without three key players and in particular I would like to mention the absence of Henrik Larsson. Without such experienced player we lost in our power, but it's a football. Anyway, even with this squad we managed to play a draw with hosts and to qualify to second qualification round.
