Declarations of the protagonists
Gerard Moreno, Villarreal forward: “Dynamo are a good team and the return leg will be as difficult as the first leg, or maybe more.”
Etienne Capoue, Villarreal midfielder: “The second leg will not be easier. It will be more difficult, since we only have a goal advantage”
Damir Krznar, Dynamo coach: “We still have a realistic chance, the recipe is how we played in the first half. I think we are still in the tie.”
Rasmus Lauritsen, defense of Dínamo: “We still have 90 minutes in Spain. I think we can do it, really. This is football: we did it against Tottenham, we showed we can do it, why shouldn’t we repeat it?”
