Everyone that watches soccer was motivated to see the game and it did not disappoint in a fan's perspective. "It's not easy to play here against a really hard team and, losing 1-0 in the first half, we had good feelings about the second".

"We know that it's a very important game and we're going to have to produce a great performance if we're to put any points on the board".
