OB lacked, according to coach Jacob Michelsen Issam Jebalis grades in the first half of the defeat to the FCM.
When the OB on Monday lost 1-2 to FC Midtjylland on their home ground, it was after a bad first half, where the guests sat at it all.
An injury to defender Jeppe Tverskov at the end of the first half resulted, however, in that Issam Jebali came in from the bench and it was much needed for OB.
- There was no doubt that Jebali made a difference. His quality on the ball was the one that we lacked in the first half, says Jakob Michelsen.
- We were too poor on the ball in the first half. We lacked quality and aggressiveness, and it was fully deserved, that we were behind 0-2 at the break.
- Players should be commended for coming out with a second expression in the second half, where they were better on the Trbet ball, and how it almost managed to retrieve one of the points in injury time (Jebali-header just over the goal, red.).
In the second camp, there was much greater satisfaction with the first half.
We played a perfect first half, where very many things managed for us.
- We custom us their systems, where they probably changed the system a few times along the way. On the ball we got the game deep, and made a few good targets, " says Brian Priske.
He had to reverse to see his team fall in the level after the break. The plan was to close the match as soon as possible with a 2-0 lead in the back. It was not, however, go.
- In the break, we talked about that we had to go out and kill the fight, and get closed on to 3-0. But then they got reduced, and then it became an open battle again.
- I'm annoyed that we have not got penalized them on one of our shifts after their reduction.
- But we won fully deserving on all the parameters. We tore them apart in the first half, says Priske.
