Alejandro Papu Gomez was left delighted with Atalanta’s progression to the Champions League quarter-finals.

La Dea beat Valencia 4-3 at Mestalla on Tuesday to clinch an 8-4 aggregate win thanks to four goals from Josip Ilicic, and the team’s overall performance pleased the captain.

“I am very happy to play in this side,” Papu said to UEFA.com afterwards. “The system worked well tonight.”

Ilicic himself spoke about improving with age, which has been seen in his performances this season, and the Argentinian shared those thoughts about his own growth as a player.

“I have developed growing older and gaining experience,” Gomez said, “and I want to help the team.”
