La Albiceleste would secure a 2-1 victory on the road, and after the match, the 33-year-old spoke to the media, where he provided his thoughts. 

“We played a good game,” Di Maria said. “We knew that the altitude was going to cost us, despite this and the problems when we arrived, we pulled this off, we were missing the best in the world, we were without the coach, and this is for them.”

“When [Messi] is here, everything is easier, he wasn’t there, and we had to divide the force, and everything is for our companions who could not be. We are happy.”
