“The most important thing was achieved”
Pizzi, Jiménez and André Almeida talked at the end of the final round of the UCL group stage. "Advancing to the last 16 of the Champions League was a goal from the first moment. Today we did not get the result we wanted, but the most important was achieved. Congratulations to the whole group for qualifying. Few believed in us after the second round, but we turned the things around and we are in the round of 16", Pizzi told. "Despite the defeat, we are in the next phase. We wanted to leave the group stage with a win but we couldn’t do it. Despite this, we achieved the most important, which is to be in the knock-out phase”, Jiménez said. "We had the strategy well defined, but we faced a great team. We made some mistakes, but we also had our chances and we could have scored first. Our confidence is high, as we moved on to the round of 16 and we are still first in the league", André Almeida stressed.
