It is very rare that we have not scored a goal; In the first half we did not believe the transitions we have had, they have been very good against us. In the second half it has been those five or six minutes that we have grown, there we have not made a correct decision and it has punished us a lot. We could have scored, clearly, “he said on Movistar +.

A Sergio Gonzalez who lamented the lost chances against the Belgian Thibaut Courtois who made up to three saves of merit in the second half: “It is clear that he is one of the great goalkeepers, but we have also had situations in which we have not believed the situations we had, such as Carnero, who with a back pass I was pushing it… You have to promote the good, not lose those virtues, and keep growing. We are conceding goals from the circus, but the team is eager ”, he declared.
