Paulo Sérgio savours CFR's Braga victory

CFR 1907 Cluj gave an "almost perfect" display in beating SC Braga 3-1 in Group H according to coach Paulo Sérgio, whose opposite number took responsibility for his side's exit.

Paulo Sérgio, CFR coach
We played almost perfect. It's important that we qualify, even if we should have done so in the home match against Galatasaray [on matchday four]. Obviously we can improve, but we don't have a lot of time at our disposal. We have to have more possession, but in order to achieve this we need to train more. Regarding my choice not to play with a genuine forward, such a decision depends on the dynamic of the game and that's why I considered it better to play with [Rafael] Bastos as the only striker. And it worked.

José Peseiro, Braga coach
The mistakes are individual ones, but they are my responsibility. We were not focused during the important moments in the match that led to the goals we conceded. I didn't expect that because we had worked on those details, but we couldn't do it.

This Champions League campaign of ours has been defined by situations like these. However, even with ten men we were united, we controlled the match and we wanted to score. We are out and it is my fault – we are not worse than Cluj and Galatasaray.
