"The important thing is that we are well, that we can count on all the players considering the demanding schedule we are facing and that we will continue to have for many weeks to come. We know that if our team performs well we can compete with anyone with a guarantee of success."
"Football has become very even, all the teams have a great defensive organisation and physically they are strong. If you don't offer the same level of intensity and concentration, you suffer. We are seeing that at all the games we play are very even and end up being decided by details. One of them is individual quality and that's where we have an advantage."
