‘It’s a real shame, I’d say there were four clear-cut opportunities plus the penalty,’ Griezmann said in a press conference.
‘If you don’t put them away, it’s harder later in the game. Nevertheless, It was a completely different contest to the first leg.
‘In the end, it wasn’t to be but we gave it everything we had. It’s also true that Keylor had a great game for them tonight – congratulations to him.
‘It’s time to keep our heads up and feel confidence because of how we played. We need to keep improving for the season to come.
‘We are hacked off because we were desperate to go through. I don’t think we deserved to go out this early but next year we’ll try to win this competition.’
Barcelona legend Pique added: ‘What a fantastic match. To play that well deserves huge merit after the first-leg result.
‘I’m proud of my team and my team-mates. There’s lots left to compete for this season and we’ll continue to do so until the end. Heads high and let’s continue this way.’
