Cristian Ansaldi was the player who appeared before the media at the Ramón de Carranza Press Room. The fullback pointed out that "the team is improving little by little, trying to attack from the outside, which is our strong weapon. They are hard teams that run and make you play that game".
Atlético’s defender said about Raúl Jiménez that "from the few words we’ve crossed, he’s happy and the group is also pleased. Any player who comes here is to improve the team. After Atlético’s successful year, we want the same for this season".
The Argentinian player acknowledged, "These games are useful for the big final we’re waiting for. We know that we will play against a big rival such as Real Madrid, so we’re taking all matches seriously".
Regarding how he finds the team, he noted that "we are convinced of succeeding like last year. That’s what we’re working for".
