The chief coach of Villarreal Marcelino Garcia Toral had shared his impressions about the home victory over Liverpool (1:0) in the first match of 1/2 final of Europe League.
"The game is not over until the head judge ends the game. We have scored the goal and achieved good result. Liverpool didn't take advantage of many moments, that is why the outcome is fair. After the drawing procedure we knew that we are facing quite different game as we had with "Sparta".
We had a chance to make a history in matches with great club, we live to play such games. We wanted to play well in defence and to show the pragmatic football. We were able to win the players who are worth 30 million euro.
We scored one goal but we had more moments and the final result could be higher. "Liverpool" has few chances to score the goal. "Villarreal" had shown matured game and deserves the winning. Our rivals say that the return game will be different. I think that differences will be few. "Liverpool" will be attacking we need to defend and make use of contra attacks", - AS is quoting Toral.
