Our team’s players ended the match happy after the triumph. Raúl García, who scored the first goal, recognised that, "it was the match we were expecting and in the first half, we had a clear objective, to hurt them."
Griezmann, who saw how his goal on minute 88 was annulled, praised the match played: "We played a great game, with a lot of intensity. I expected an Atlético like this, with plenty of pressure up front.”
The good match from Juanfran on the right wing resulted in chants from the fans: "We are a team that plays through the wings and we hope to continue playing that way. I am very proud that the Calderón chanted my name."
José María Giménez made his Champions League debut with Atlético. The Uruguayan appreciated the team's great performance. "We played very well. We were always on the attack, defending very well, didn’t concede any goals, which is very important, and we earned three points, which is more important yet," he said.
