Luiz Hails ‘Humble, Mature’ Performance As Arsenal Win in Greece
Arsenal defender David Luiz says that his team were ‘humble and mature’ as they won their Europa League Round of 32 first leg away at Olympiacos.
The Gunners scored a vital away goal thanks to Alex Lacazette’s 81 st minute strike, but they were defensively solid throughout the game too.
“It was a good result for us. It's so difficult to play here against an amazing team with an amazing coach, amazing atmosphere.
“It was difficult but I think we played a mature game where we tried not to concede and we knew when we had to defend,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“They are a good team. They did well in the Champions League against amazing teams and they showed tonight that they have great ideas in football.
“But we played a humble game, a mature game, and understood that we needed to defend as a team. It's a good result but it's not finished yet.”
