Igor Tudor, OM coach, after the victory over Sporting Portugal (4-1): “After a match like that, I don’t want to talk about individualities. I think we had a very serious collective match. We had the strength after the conceded goal to react and attack hard as we had planned. The red card made the rest of the match easier for us, but I must congratulate my team, who gave a very serious performance.
For three or four matches, Balerdi has always been among the best on the pitch. His qualities are beginning to emerge. He is a very good player, of a very, very high level. This victory gives us courage and confidence. She was long overdue. A victory in the Champions League necessarily has a special value. We played other great matches, like in Nice. What matters is progress and it’s easier with wins. The return match will be different, outside, with their audience. It will be very difficult. »
