Casillas answered reporters questions after tonight’s draw:

“The tie is still open. 0-0 means an open result that will allow the return match to be attractive and we’ll have our chances. I hope we can win the draw at home.”

“The ref was fine. If we look at each action in detail maybe he could have been more tough but I think he did a decent job for both teams, based on how tough the game was played. I don’t think he stood out.”

“In the first half we got shut down by an incredible performance from Oblak and maybe we deserved more.”

“Marcelo is a big loss, but the coach has players for his position. It’s not ideal to miss players, its best for the coach to have more choices.”
