In between the sadness of Bolívar's elimination and his happiness for being named #BestOfTheMatch, Thomaz Santos said: "It's difficult to talk. Bolívar were the better team in both matches. We controlled the tempo, but that's football. Sometimes the best team doesn't win. We leave very disappointed. The dream ends here."
"Yes, we had a lot of expectations. The team worked hard, we've got great players and great people. We need to keep going forward," he concluded.
