Press conference quotes


When you are in a good dynamic, you always want to continue in that dynamic and with that confidence. We go into one of the most important games of the season at our best moment. We are going to have to have a great game on Sunday to win. The objective of both teams will be to dominate. I think, aside from arriving at a good moment, and despite their style of play, we can do damage.”


“When you go up against a direct rival, and even more so in the second half of the season, the points are vital, but it’s another game. We want to continue in this way, and Sunday’s test is a very demanding one, but we arrive at our best moment. You have to take advantage of it, and over all, not wait for the game, to go into the game from the start.”


“Over all, analyzing Elche, they don’t only concede very few goals, the rivals have to work very hard to create chances. Because of that, it’s a demanding test for us. At the same time, we are prepared to do damage to Elche and to continue playing with the ball, which allows us to create a lot of chances. We have to go into the game with that mindset.”
