Too close to call says AEK boss

Too close to call says AEK boss

AEK Athens coach Dusan Bajevic won't be reading too much into Dundee United's performance during their opening day draw with St Mirren.

Bajevic was in attendance at St Mirren Park to cast his eyes over his latest Europa League opponents, who have home advantage on Thursday evening before travelling to Greece for the second-leg seven days later.

And he witnessed the visitors snatch a late point through a Jon Daly equaliser in the 89th minute after they had earlier conceded against the run of play.

"Dundee United had two sides to their play,' Bajevic told The Courier. "First half, they did not play as good as we know they can play and you could almost say they were only defending. However, in the second half they were much better.

"They are a very dangerous team from free-kicks and corner kicks. Generally they are a very strong and quick team. I cannot speak about specific players, but the centre-forward is a very good player.

"In my opinion, the thing that makes them stronger is the fact they clearly play as a team," he continued. "They fight until the last minute as we saw today when they scored after fighting to the very last second.

"This is the strength and power of Dundee United ... What we will do is respect this team and ultimately the best team will win — it's a 50-50 game."
