“I’m happy for the team’s work, it’s a victory that means a lot because our rivals are not dropping points so we can’t either. We are aware of what we are playing for now. It is always nice to get a win like this and for the fans to travel well. I want to dedicate today’s win to the fans that traveled to see us play at Balaidos. We are content with our work because this victory gives us a lot. Reaching 62 points is a merit to our hard work. Our next game will be a complicated match because Alaves is playing very well at the moment.”


“We knew we had to play our best here because our table rivals had not failed in their matches. We needed to control the match and that is what we did. Whether or not they were thinking about their game on Thursday, they are still a dangerous team and we needed to be ready for anything. We know that we are doing well in this second half of the season and we have to tighten up even more because it would be a shame for Europe to escape us. We have to take advantage of our form. We have to try to get every point because a single point could make the difference.”
