“We wanted to play well against Espanyol and set ourselves up in the best way possible”, explained the Argentine. 
Di María started the last La Liga match and expressed his thoughts on the team's performance after the win against Espanyol: “We wanted to play a good match, step up to the challenge and show that we were unlucky in the last game. Things didn't come off for us. The important thing today was to win, play well and set ourselves up in the best way possible ahead of next Saturday's game”.

“This season has been good overall. We did everything we could to try and win the league title and the important thing is that we fought for all three competitions right until the end, which is what we wanted to do at the beginning of the season. The Champions League final is an important match, we are all happy and excited for having won”.
