We cannot say that we will have to (only) defend. It is not our game. We are to have possession, to control. We know that Barça is capable of doing many things. We had a very good first leg match (4-0). You have to do the same thing on your return. Because in front, they are able to score at any time, every minute. You will have to be very focused."

From the beginning, we found ourselves in danger, because of Barca's advanced players. We had never experienced such a tough match, with such pressure from the opponent, but there's still no excuse. It's just a game to forget, inexplicable, something that had never happened before. There were also refereeing decisions. I think all the factors were against us."
