Earlier, Ramos commented on the victory in the return match with Atalanta.
“Our task was to advance to the next round. We entered the field with the desire to go further, to control the ball and the game. We created a lot of chances and could have scored more goals, but we have this throughout the season.
We had no idea how exactly Atalanta would press, but we were able to immediately take the game under our control. We knew that, given the speed of their attacking players, we would be in danger, but everything went well, they had few chances.
The contract? I still have nothing to say about this. As soon as there is news, I will tell you everything, “- Marca quotes Spaniard Sergio Ramos.
