"You can't use such short preparation to play against one of the best team in the world and expect to win but I think generally we did well.

"I believe that we have a very good account of ourselves against one of the best club in Europe. They are a very good side I must confess and really gave us a tough time.

"Honestly, It was a wonderful opportunity for me and I'm very proud to be part of such a big game like this because I've gained more experience and also had great moments."
