Important victory: "The truth is that the team is working very hard and the players are responding. Today it was difficult defensively because they defended very well. In the first half we did not find the way and they made us a counterattack, but in the second half, the changes improved the team. "

0-0 at half-time, again: "We have to work on it, it is one of the factors that years ago we solved better. At Calderón we had results in the first half that allowed us to play the second most comfortable time."

Penalti Llorente: "I have not seen the images, what I know that Llorente had tremendous speed. This is the VAR, the referees. Llorente, Costa and Carrasco both gave a lot of speed and strength" .
