Sergio Ramos spoke to the press upon the conclusion of the match against Betis: “It wasn't one of our best days, particularly in front of goal. We didn't play great football but we did create a lot of chances. We had opportunities to score from the early stages. It's tough to get the first goal in these games and sometimes it just won't come. The team did everything it could, we created chances, many of them pretty clear-cut in which we could easily have scored”.
“We've got to move on and turn our attentions to the next game. We've turned around some big points deficits in LaLiga in the past. We have to stay calm because there are a lot of games still to come and points up for grabs. I'm going home with a clear conscience, knowing I gave it all I had, even if the result didn't go for us”.
“When we don't win, we have to draw conclusions and assess our mistakes. Things can always be improved. We have to keep calm and stick together, that's the key to success”.
Isco: “We all pushed up for a heroic finish at the end”
“It seems as though we're struggling a bit more to play our game and convert our chances at home. Adán had a great game as well. At the end, when we all pushed up for a heroic finish, that's when they got the goal. Things aren't going as well this year as they did last in the last campaign, but we're at the start of the season and we've got time to turn things around. The most important thing is for us to stick together when we're up against it. I have absolute confidence in this team”.
Room for improvement
“It's as though if we don't get an early goal at the Bernabéu, we get a little bit anxious. That's something we have to improve on and it's better to happen now at the beginning of the season when we've got a lot of time and room for improvement. Let's hope it doesn't happen again. We have to pull our finger out, it's not easy, but we've come through tougher things. We're the champions, we're Real Madrid and we have a duty to fight for everything”.
