Krovinovic made his debut as a starter with Bruno Lage at the helm. Despite the bad result (1-0) in the match from the 1st leg of the Europa League last 16, the eagles' number 20 believes that the team will be able to turn the result around and go through to the next round.

"Returning to Zagreb was a very beautiful moment for me, it is a shame we lost, but there is more on Thursday , and we are going to be able to turn this result around", he guaranteed.

The red midfielder was pleased to be one of Bruno Lage's choices for the starting eleven and said that he felt very good during the match.

"It was my first match as a starter with gaffer Bruno Lage and I felt very good, as I have already said it I am sorry we suffered a defeat, but I think that we controlled the game in the first half, Dinamo made quick offensive transitions and unfortunately we ended up conceding a penalty. In the 2nd half it was an open game for both teams", he explained.
