José Alberto: “Other times, with much more, we have achieved less”

Assessment of the match and the tie. Are you satisfied? “The game has had many moments for both teams. In the first half, Valladolid came out with a lot of drive in the first 10 or 15 minutes and they subdued us. It costed us. From then on, the team, until the 55th minute or so when the goal arrived (that of the Valladolid draw), we were quite comfortable in the game. It is true that Valladolid had the ball, but they had it in areas where we were comfortable and we were able to counterattack and get out of danger. The point is very long-suffering and I think that other times with much more we have achieved less. Today we had to suffer and put in a very high level of effort and it is clear that to score in this field you need that dose of luck to be able to add ”.
