“Goals don't come without effort, fight and focus. They all understood that and we come into this moment of the season in good physical and mental shape. All the players have shown that we have a very competitive squad. Those who have played less in the first part of the season have shown that they are in good shape and are motivated. They fit in well when they play in the team."
“I think it's impossible to do more than he's doing. He has to keep this form up, and we're all going to help him to keep going as he is."
Modric change and players who missed out
“Modric had a knock. Now we have a few days to evaluate the situation of Bale, Benzema, Varane, Ramos and all the players who had fitness issues in this game. Bale had a problem with his gluteus and we preferred not to risk him. It was to avoid taking risks, it wasn't player rotation."
