Raíllo, Morlanes, Nastasic and Aguirre assess the match against Atletico Madrid

Find out what our players and the boss had to say after our defeat

Antonio Raíllo, Manu Morlanes, Matija Nastasic and Javier Aguirre spoke to the media after our 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid. Find out what the players and the boss had to say below:

Antonio Raíllo

"You have to look at the game a little bit. They took the lead very quickly in an isolated action, a defensive mistake on our part. When Atletico Madrid take the lead, it's very difficult."

"I would say there was a lack of accuracy in the final third. In the end, that's the feeling I have.”

"We must not wait for others to fail. We have to do our job, ourselves and if you win you don't have to look at what your opponent is doing."

Matija Nastasic

"We are very disappointed. We tried harder in the second half than we did in the first, but we couldn't score a goal.”

"Any team is difficult when they score early on, but especially against Atletico Madrid."

Manu Morlanes

"It's a pretty bad feeling because we didn't manage to win, which is what we were looking for. We didn't manage to find ourselves in the match. We looked a little bit stuck, although we had some chances to score a goal."

"Against an opponent like this one, who we know are also comfortable without the ball, in the end, when they get in front, they know how to play their game."

Javier Aguirre

"It was a typical game against Atletico Madrid. Last year it was our turn to score and defend, and today it was their turn. They are one-goal games, with few chances and a lot of tactical work."

"Just as on other occasions we have scored first, today it was their turn and we can only congratulate them."
