Valencia Statements

José Bordalás spoke ahead of this important clash: "We are focused on playing a great match. It's a very important moment for the Club, the team and the fans. We are focused exclusively on that. There is an attempt to condition as I said before and I'm not going to go into that. Our objective is to win a very important match and give joy to our fans. There's going to be a great atmosphere at Mestalla".

"Away goals are no longer worth double, the tie is 50-50. Athletic is a great team and has eliminated Barcelona and Real Madrid. I think we are 50-50. We are playing at home with our fans, who will give us the plus and the energy that Mestalla gives us. We are counting on that and the players are psyched to face the match."

"It is a possibility. The drawing is not the most important thing, but to have balance. We have tried throughout the season, because of the team's record and this one so far, to improve the defensive records. We are looking for balance. We want to win games and we will always look for balance. We have a great team in front of us, who don't elaborate much and have a lot of verticality. We have to interpret the game well".
