Default UEFA Cup | Deportivo 2 - SK Brann 0 | Depor win 3-2 on pens| Post Match Comments

Depor played well, especially considering that Riki was sent off after only 29 minutes.

The goalscorer was new boy Colotto with 2 identical headers at the far post, after 18 and 76 minutes.

Brann lacked ambition and Depor had huge periods of posession, well worth their 2 goal lead. Even after Riki received that second yellow card, Depor continued to dominate and but for one moment where Brann hit the post, there only looked like one team would add to the scoresheet.

Most of the Depor players ran their hearts out and should be given credit for their efforts.

On the downside, we had 4 goals dissallowed, 3 for offside and 1 for Riki's handball. IMO they were all correct decisions but we also had a few great penalty decisions that weren't given to us.

The penalty shoot out was always going to be a bit of a lottery either way but fortunately we got through it despite Mista's terrible penalty
