Paul Posa, Auckland City coach
We all saw the game, the best team won. I believe Atlante are the best team we’ve ever faced. We were taught a footballing lesson tonight. But I’m proud of the boys. They were lacking a bit of confidence but kept going and had a couple of chances. Even though we lost it was a great experience. The boys will learn a lot from this.
Jose Cruz, Atlante coach
We knew it would be a difficult game, especially seeing as we hadn’t played for about a month. But it was a tremendous effort from the players. Auckland showed they are a good team but we won and we’re very happy. We cant wait to play Barça. We’re high on confidence and will look to put on a good show and win. We want to measure ourselves against and beat the best sides in the world.
