Olivier Deschacht was the first to react after the match: "We are finally there again! I've been playing the Champions League before, but this time I want Barcelona as an opponent."

"We were great from the start. We put them under pressure and defended well. I knew we would make it. We had chances but it took a long time to score. But our offensive quality is great and their players got exhausted eventually. In the back I had to stay focussed. One goal for them and it would have been a disaster."

John Van den Brom was clearly satisfied. "It is great for me, for the players and for the club. With Ajax I won the Champions League as a player. That was great, but being on the bench for this game was also magnificent. With time running out I had to go for risky replacements but it turned out just fine."

Dieumerci Mbokani scored the opening goal. Normally he doesn't talk to the press, but this time he made an exception. With his child in his arms he said :"I am so happy. This is a great moment. So close before the end I ended up scoring such an important goal."
