Espanyol coach Pablo Machín was "pleased" for the sensations and the image his Espanyol offered in defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu. "We had to score small goals accessible and most of them were fulfilled. We have faced the best Madrid of the season." The Soria coach has claimed that after a match like this, he sees his team "able to save the category without any doubt." "We have arguments to play better than we do. I am only angry with half of all the games I bring here. We have changed the image, we are what we were looking for."
The white-and-blue coach has also spoken about some controversial arbitration decisions. "If the Carvajal penalty on Calleri had been pointed out, nobody could have said that he was not there. Which seems clearer is the second yellow to Vinícius. 99% of those who have seen the game know it is clear. unquestionably we would like more homogenous arbitration criteria. "
The coach has extended his eyes to the two games left in Liga this 2019, against Betis and Leganés. "There are two crucial games before the break we have to win to add self-esteem."
