"It was a very good game. We didn't start well again - we didn't have a good old first half but we got the goal and we were more comfortable. We played well second half and we could have scored more. After the red card it was more comfortable."

"It wasn't the game plan to counterattack, but they have to come at us and maybe at time we were a bit deeper and we are good on the counter. That's how the two goals came about and we are happy. Of course Ederson's long pass (For the first goal) was planned. We know he is capable of putting the ball in the other goal we practice it all the time and today it worked."
