“I think the team didn’t relax. Our situation here is very complicated, very difficult… Today is a different sensation than what we see. We didn’t find the paths, we lost the virtues we had in a few minutes. Furthermore, you have a great team in front of you and they don’t give you any options”. ´

“We have to think that we have come into the illusion of having a good game. We are in the match, we know what we have to do, and we don’t get away that way. This game has to help us know that if we are not aligned with that team we will struggle. The situation is going to be competitive against any rival. We have to try to get the best out of the team.”

Reasons for defeat

“I think it’s a matter of understanding the game. They keep us in positions of difficulty. They find themselves well because they have quality. There was a time when the team, when it was 1-1 , started doing things better. I didn’t like the beginning of the second half, not only because of the goal but because of how we came out. The team in the last half we tried to love, we received the third and the situation is complicated. We’ve seen things that give us information on what we need to improve on. To win against teams at this level, we still have a lot to do. We haven’t been as I expected. You have to be self-critical and from there begin to grow”.


“The VAR issue is the same as before. I don’t think there was any kind of volition, and with the following actions we made it 1-1. You can’t go in to check anything. The game is over and we can’t go on with that topic anymore. I think it’s not on purpose. Everything that loses energy is pointless, nothing more can be done”.

Cavani’s minutes

“We are trying to make sure that our injured players are fine. There is still a lack of rhythm. The break will be good for him to recover physically. In his case it’s positive because he’s back in the group and he’s with us in the group”.
