The coach spoke of his gesture after the match, when he went to greet the fans: “It was to thank a group that has really helped the team. The atmosphere in the stadium was great and that is important because it helps us give our all. Having fans that help us in all our games is very important for us”.
Barcelona's defeat in the title race
“Barcelona still believe they can win the league. There are a lot of surprises this season and they will fight until the end. It will not change the dynamic of Wednesday's match. It was a surprise that they lost but every team has its goals, above all, those who are fighting for salvation are very dangerous. We have an incredibly important match on Wednesday and we don't have time to think about anything else”.
“Di María didn't have a great match against Dortmund and he has responded well because he had a great game today. Nobody can play where Cristiano does. We have to use an alternative solution. The team is more balanced playing with Di María on the right”.
Fitness of the players for Wednesday
“Ramos, Alonso and Carvajal will certainly be back. Cristiano is progressing and still receiving treatment. Marcelo is doing some good individual work and I don't think he's ready for Wednesday. A break in the league could help us to prepare for our Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich”.
