Mats Rits: “Plenty of chances to win”

Reclaiming his place in midfield, Mats Rits helped Club towards a number of fine chances against Galatasaray. The cherry on top didn't follow, however, keeping Club stuck at 0-0.


“A sense of disappointment. We had the better chances, and dominated the game from the onset. Mignolet kept us afloat that one time in the first half when we screwed up ourselves. That's about all he had to do today. We had a number of chances and really should have made the most of them. Our game plan was a success. Creating five clear cut chances in the Champions League is not a given, but we really should have kept the points here. It's not like you get ten chances in games like these, you really should make the most of what you get.”

Galatasaray restored the balance somewhat in the second half, but Club stayed in control of things. "We gave a lot, and tried to put pressure the entire ninety minutes. They had the better of the game by the end, and the pressure eased somewhat. But taking into account the entire ninety minutes, we just should have had three points by now. We'll take what's positive from this game with us and see how we can do better next time. A sense of disappointment  reigns right now, as there were chances to win this. A bit more killer mentality should go a long way.” (KN)
