Asteras Tripolis players Giorgos Zisopoulos and Apostolos Giannou admitted Schalke superiority.
"We started the game well. But we lost our focus for 15 minutes. Schalke are a big club with many years in the European cups. It was a tough game. We will correct out turnovers since we are equal with the other teams. The gamew against APOEL are crucial" said Zisopoulos.
"Schalke was better in the game. Until minute 28', they didn't miss a chance. Then we conceded the first goal. I don;t know if the penalty was right" Giannou said.
