NEWS | 09/04/2016 | Bárbara Jiménez“The game against Wolfsburg will be the defining match of the season”, said Casilla.
“We didn't go to Wolfsburg thinking we would lose 2-0. We had a bad game but the knockout ties are 180 minutes. We have 90 minutes left to play and, in front of our fans, we want to stage a comeback and get into the semi-finals. On Tuesday we will fight to the death and try to overcome our rival”.
Whistling at Danilo
“I think it's very unfair. In Wolfsburg we all had a bad game. We are all in the same boat and if they whistle at one player then they whistle at all of us. We want to turn those whistles into applause and have the fans buzzing, supporting us, and helping us get to the semi-finals”.
Casilla: “Playing in the way we know, nothing is impossible”
“We have reduced the points deficit in La Liga and anything can happen between now and the end of the season. It has also been good preparation for the Champions League and several players have been able to rest. Now we only need to focus on the game on Tuesday, which will be the defining match of the season”.
“We’ve kept up the good rhythm we’ve had at the Bernabéu recently: coming out with intensity and scoring goals quickly. It’s not easy, we did it really well and the team has scored goals. We didn’t lose our concentration and we’ve not picked up any injuries”.
“We’re sure we’ll turn the tie around and make it to the semi-finals. It’s going to be a battle and we want to make it hard for Wolfsburg. We have to be intense from the off and we’ll need the support of the fans, but together, I’m certain we’ll all be in the semi-finals.”.
“The fans are entitled to their opinion, but I think like the rest of the team, that he can’t be blamed for the game the other day. It was his fault as much as any of ours. He showed tremendous character, he didn’t hide, he wanted the ball, got involved and had a shot at goal. It’s not easy when you get booed at home, but he’s got the character to turn those boos into applause in the next game”.
