“We pushed as the game was getting tough but eventually we scored two quick-fire goals despite failing to finish off the chances we had. It’s hard to explain the situation, we did not play well at Malaga we have not started off well today either. In the second half we reacted and the substitutions livened us up but we could not get the 3-3 which would have been a fairest result. We know there is nothing at stake on Saturday but we will try to finish as high up the table as possible. The game against Real Madrid will be tough we’ve got very few days to rest up but will try to come out with a positive result".
