“I’m very disappointed with the first half,” said Carlos Gonzalez, Atlético coach, after the match. “We made individual mistakes. Stupid mistakes. After that, you are chasing the game.

“It’s very difficult to win a game where you give stupid gifts. A game like this is a game you want to forget as soon as possible.”
