The fullback reflected on the 0-2 win at Celtic Park
Three years ago, Toni Lato played at Celtic Park with the Valencia CF Juvenil A team. He was back at the Glasgow ground this Thursday, playing for the first team. The fullback reflected on the game immediately after the final whistle.
"It was an even game and we were able to be patient, knowing that the fans were going to get on our backs. We waited to get our chances and made the most of them. We were the better side tonight," said the Spaniard.
"This is a spectacular place to play, and you enjoy yourself playing here, but we had the patience and personality to set the tie up well. We'll take things game by game, but we got a good result here and we're going to try to go as far as possible in a very important competition."
On his return to Celtic Park, Lato said that "personally, I have good memories of here. Three years ago we got through to the next round of the Youth League on penalties, and today we were able to win to put the tie in our favour."
