Read below words of our side’s players after the end of the match against Barcelona.

Silvio Proto

On the match against Barcelona: “It was something truly amazing that we, the entire side, managed to keep a clean sheet against such an opponent like Barcelona. It could never have occurred to me; I am 34 years old, I have never seen in my life such fans. I think that with these fans on our side we can do everything. Having them at the stands and ourselves on the pitch, we managed to earn a positive result against one the world’s top teams”.

On the side’s positive display ahead of coming fixtures: “This is the kind of spirit we must have. The Greek league is completely different to the UEFA Champions League. In this context, we have to dominate the pitch and set the pace. This is how we should play, this match should be a beacon for us about having a fighting spirit and keeping control”.

On the following matches against Sporting and Juventus: “No one may know, everything can happen. I think we have what it takes to get a good result against Juventus, at home. Of course, we have to earn a positive result against Sporting, which is very important. I think everything can happen, as long as we have faith. There are still 6 points to collect in the coming matches”.

Alberto Botia

On the match against Barcelona: “The truth is that that what we love in a 90-minute match is that, always, everything can happen. This is exactly the point we made tonight. We gave all we got, we played as a team. I think we should continue this way, stay united, run until the very last minute, since this was what earned us this great result”.

On the atmosphere and the welcome to Ernesto Valverde: “The atmosphere created tonight was simply amazing. The fans spent the entire 90 minutes chanting. It was a stunning environment that incentivizes every player”.

Bjorn Engels

On how Olympiacos managed to contain one of the world’s best teams: “We made a great performance, the result was very good against a top class side. I believe that what we had was the will to react following our defeat to Panathinaikos. We wanted to do that for our fans. We stood firm and earned a positive result”.

On the crowd and atmosphere in G. Karaiskakis: “I have had my share of …vibrating stands during my spell in Belgium, but tonight’s was most amazing. It was fantastic and can give every player this extra boost and incentive”.

On the remaining campaign and the battle for third place: “We needed this point. We were really sad with our zero tally before tonight. So, now, we are confident to fight for third place in our coming match against Sporting».

On his performance, match after match: “It was a difficult beginning, since I had to acquaint myself with my teammates. Match after match, I feel better, I needed some time. As matches come one after the other, I am feeling even better and that makes me really happy”.
