MATCH QUOTES

โ€œDavidโ€™s [Ginola] goal got us out of jail. โ€œIt rescued us and kept us in the tie. This is two-legged football and it does not matter how you play as long as you go through. โ€œAfter David scored I thought we would draw 1-1, but to be honest they deserved a 2-1 win.โ€ Paul Merson.
