Hoxha: I was stressed but I am satisfied with the assist

Arbër Hoxha was one of the best on the field in the qualification of Dinamo Zagreb in the 1/8 finals of the Conference League.

His assist in the 59th minute was brilliant when Japan's Takuro Kaneko scored.

With Hoxha's assist and Kaneko's goal, Dinamo Zagreb secured further advancement, as the return match with Real Betis ended 1:1.

Dinamo in Spain had won 1:0.

It was Hoxha's first assist for Dinamo Zagreb in seven games since he was transferred from Slaven Belupo.

"Very difficult match. We conceded a careless goal in the first half, but we worked hard, ran a lot and had chances to score even more goals. The most important thing is that we advanced further. I am very happy for the assistance, I was stressed. I am proud to have helped the team. I have no idea who my next opponent will be. We must concentrate on Sunday's duel, in the derby against Rijeka. Today we will celebrate and focus on the next match", said Arbër Hoxha after the match.
