Carlos Fernández and Álex Bergantiños spoke to the press at ABANCA-RIAZOR's mixed zone.

The Andalusian striker who scored a brace today, warned, "whoever thinks we've already qualified is completely mistaken. We are going to have a difficult match there. Málaga is a great team at home with their supporters."

He acknowledged, "we've created a lot of chances in these last games and it looks like it doesn't want to go in. But as my friend says: 'If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.' Today we succeeded. We're happy and with our minds now set on Saturday's game."

Álex Bergantiños also warned "Málaga's ground is extremely complicated. It's going to be packed. We're going to suffer a lot there."

The Branquiazul homegrown midfielder stated that this Saturday's match (9pm, Movistar Partidazo) is going to be "a tough game. If we don't give 100 % at any moment they can turn this around." For this reason, he urges "maximum caution" ahead of the second leg clash.

He admitted that tonight's triumph and the league match against Real Mallorca, with a last-minute penalty, "is very morale-boosting. But this changes quickly. At half-time people thought we were dead and that can happen with Málaga. They're a great team, they'll be playing in front of their supporters and they have the capacity to turn this around if we don't go there with our feet on the ground."
