“I feel sorry for the fans that created a great atmosphere in both games”, was one of the first things Xavi Pascual said during his press conference after the game.

“It was obvious that they played with incredible confidence, even though we had control in the beginning of the game”, continues Panathinaikos‘ coach. “In the beginning of the game we had an opportunity to get an advantage, but we lost it from two very bad defensive plays”.

“It’d be wrong to focus just on the final plays. We made mistakes that determined the fate of the game earlier”.

The coach noticed some differences in Panathinaikos‘ game tonight and admitted that his team played better than the first game. “We played better, but Fener played excellently”.
