We have the possibility of playing two or three more. That’s why we must play it respecting our rivals and knowing that it will be a very tough game but with belief”, said Cristian Toro.

On the other hand VCFF captain Ivana Andrés talked to VCFradio:” We’re looking to rounding off our best season, it’s the icing on the cake. Athletic are a good side, they will make difficult for us but we’ll take them on with eager excitement and our style of play. It’s a one-legged tie which will be decided by details, the side coming out with more focus will probably take the win”.
