After the game, Athletic Bilbao coach Gezka Galitano was interviewed. He said that taking all three points is the most important thing in a game.

In the football world, you always seem to have done everything but in the end There are always games where you have not scored a point, but you don’t seem to have done anything but you get the three points smoothly. In some clubs, winning always comes first, and Athletic Bilbao is that A member of the club."
"The only thing we can talk about in this game is that we scored three points. There is nothing else to say. There are always people who think that not winning will make the atmosphere in the locker room pessimistic, but I must say that Athletic Bilbao The dressing room is quite calm. We know we are not that bad. We have to look at things on the positive side, not the negative side. Not only do we fight fiercely, but we also have a lot of experience in handling the ball. In this game we controlled six The successful ball possession rate also occupies an absolute advantage during part of the game... In those games where we did not win, we did the same, which is enough to prove that losing does not mean bad performance. ."
"This is a practical victory. We played our own tactics in the first half. It helped us to hold the ball in the opponent's half. We suffered a lot in the second half, but the result was good."
"I talked to Unai Lopez before. I said that since you wear the No. 8, then take on the responsibility of the No. 8 and help the team score a few more goals. We don't have a good scorer now, everyone wants Take the responsibility for scoring, whoever stands in a position to shoot, will go and score the ball for me."
