The meeting was tense and filled with many clashes on the pitch, as well as some strange judging decisions. The coach said he would have to look at a repetition of the situation to have a clearer position for them. Otherwise he is happy with the result.

In the second half we fought hard, but we felt we were less. we did not stop attacking. We had to keep playing cohesive and not we refuse to attack, “Valverde said.
