Deila praised the youth and potential of his squad, he also took time to celebrate it’s the oldest member in Maxi Moralez. The playmaker produced a vintage performance that was crowned with an assist for Taty Castellanos early in the second half.

“He is the smartest football player on that pitch,” Deila said. “He can play every position except goalkeeper. I think he’s a bit too small for that. He organizes the team, he can run, and on the ball he is really good. That was the positive of playing him in that [deeper] role. When he plays 10 he comes down to get the ball so he is already in that position. The biggest thing is if he can do the defensive work and he is smart in his positioning and I think he did really well.”
