“We are disappointed with the result, but we have a lot of confidence with how we played. They gave everything they could. They know that they can get to the final playing like that”.
Luis Enrique (FC Barcelona) reacts after the win:
“We knew the difficulty of the game. We played a very good first half and we created chances. The second half was intense, we wore them down a bit and increased our chances of winning.”
