Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the press after the game against Sevilla: “We won by playing well, with a good idea of how to play and with a lot of confidence.

“Cristiano is completely recovered and there is nothing to be said about Bale of Benzema because they are both fantastic. Casillas was excellent tonight. What happened during the World Cup is forgotten, this is a new season for him and for us. He has everyone's trust”.
