After the game, Zoet told NOS, ”The save that I made from the one on one with Antoine Griezmann is definitely one of the most important in my career so far especially in the instance that we managed to keep a clean sheet and not concede an away goal.

“I do not think we started the game well and if you take into account Gaston Pereiro’s dismissal in the second half I thought that we responded well.

“All in all it was a good team performance.

”We must go for it in the 2nd leg in Madrid in 3 weeks time and if we do not concede in Spain then we have a great chance to go through to the Champions League quarter finals”.
