Gian Piero Gasperini analyzed the match to the microphones of Sky: “Breakthrough? We are there, we have been in the Europe area for 27 days in a row. It doesn’t seem so bad to me. A bit like all the teams that compete with us, we have had positive and negative moments. Today we played a good game from a technical point of view.”
Regarding the performance of Muriel and Zapata the Nerazzurri coach replied as follows: “I liked them a lot, they had an excellent match. They didn’t play much because they were injured and didn’t have a chance. For a while, Hojlund and Lookman did very well, but if Zapata and Muriel are fit, we’re definitely stronger. If they play like this, they will find the goal.”

With this spirit, this comeback victory, we can give everything from here to the end”.
Final interview dedicated by Gasp to the Italian teams in the quarter-finals of the three European cups: “A fantastic signal, it means that our teams are strong. In the Champions League we will certainly have a team in the semifinals, we hope to have them in the final too and maybe win because it would also be the moment after so many years. There are competitive opponents but they are also the Italians, this year there’s every chance to go all the way”.
