NEWS | 23/04/2017“We had chances to kill the game off”, said Asensio.
“It hurts when you consider the situation we were in before the match but there's no time to dwell on it. We've got to move on and turn our attentions to the next game. Just like in the game against Atlético de Madrid, today we'd done the hard part, which was to level things up with ten men, but tiny details saw the game slip away from us. We'll have to keep learning”.
“The sending off was a key moment because they scored in the last minute. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect that, but for me a red card was excessive. I caught him late but I didn't go in to harm the player. I don't talk about the referees because they can make mistakes like any of us and I'm never going to discuss it”.
Asensio: "We have to fight until the end to win the league"
"The team has fought until the end and when they score in the last minute it makes you angry. But we are still there, we have a game in hand and we have to keep fighting until the end to win the league. We had chances to finish the game but we didn’t put them away. They also have a lot of quality up front and we paid the price”.
"We managed to draw level with one player less, when it was more difficult. We worked well and the goal at the end is a blow, but we have to look forward and keep going in the right direction. We have six finals and we have to win them to win the league. Now we have to turn our attention to Deportivo and go step by step”.
