"Just before conceding the third goal, we created chances to score a third ourselves. We knew Madrid are good on the counter, we should have been more careful when we were level. We played really well until we went 3-2 down."

Walter Mazzarri, Napoli coach, speaking to Prime Video

"I think we lowered our guard a bit, and it didn't go well. But I'm happy with the performance, the players did well against a great team. It's not easy, but we tried our best and will continue to do so. It's not like winning of course, but it's positive; it was a good approach. We're disappointed, because we always want to win, and will work on our mistakes."

Giovanni Simeone, Napoli striker, speaking to Prime Video
