What managers say

Eduardo Berizzo: "We won a tough match [against Panathinaikos], as they will all be in this competition. We faced a team with prestige and history. In the first half we had no circulation of the ball, but when we corrected it tactically we felt more comfortable. From there we managed to make runs and find spaces to the back of their defence."

Luis Enrique: "I sincerely believe the result [against Borussia Monchengladbach] was fair. It wasn't easy to win here. I want to remind you they were 18 games unbeaten at home, including 11 straight wins – so you can see how tough it is to win here. We made the substitutions to try and open the pitch up and to get players between the lines. In the second half we were better positioned on the pitch than in the first half."
