Henrikh Mkhitaryan praised his side’s recent maturation following their 1-0 win against Vitesse in the first leg of their Conference League clash.

The Armenian lauded the Giallorossi’s mindset as they earned their third consecutive clean this evening in the Netherlands.

“Playing on this pitch wasn’t easy so we had to adapt. It’s not easy to win here, luckily we got a goal just before halftime,” he told Sky Sport.

“After that we defended very well. The team is maturing, we can’t always play the same. The manager likes to change things up and we have to follow his lead, all the players understand this.”

He continued, “If we do what we have to do we can win. But we must take things one game at time then see where we end up. We have to be ready for every single match.”
