"……we’re happy of course that we made it to the semifinals but we aren’t happy with how we played today, especially in the first half. I don’t understand what happened. We always say we will learn from these types of games, but it seems we never do.”

"The truth is it’s a ground we know well; we didn’t have a good first half and they took advantage of it, with the backing of their support. We have to be happy about going through, but we need to think about the first half. In the second we had more possession (…) After this big step it’s time to think about the league, we need to keep collecting the points to put pressure on the teams above, because unfortunately this isn’t in our hands."
