AEK manager Traianos Dellas congratulated his players after the 1-1 draw at Karaiskaki stadium, but tried to keep their feet on the ground.
"Congratulations to everyone, I had told you that the main thing was to go out there and play our game and that is what you did", he said. "What we did is the result of hard work and you deserve to be happy about it. But we must stay focused. We must be careful as we go higher. If you fall from great heights it is even tougher".
