Borja Valle and Mamadou Koné were the centre of attention in ABANCA-RIAZOR's mixed zone.

The Spanish forward stated, "this is the magic of football. Any teammate, in any move, can score the winner. We can go home happy, tired because it was hard work. The match was very complicated because Oviedo is a very intense team. We're happy."

He described today's win as "important": "Not because of what happened last season, that's forgotten. We now have to think about this new season. It's a new stage with new objectives. It's about creating an identity, automatisms, it's about beginning with a win against Real Oviedo, and the way we win. Everything is positive, it makes you stronger again, and makes you realise how complicated Second Division is."

Koné, who scored today's opener, highlighted ABANCA-RIAZOR's atmosphere: "It's amazing and today the atmosphere kept going even when they equalised. The fans did not give in and helped us achieve today's win."

He admitted that in the final minutes the team was "very tired. The match was very difficult. Christian coming on gave us more strength. We're all happy with his screamer."
