“There are never any easy games for this club,” said Chicharito.
Benzema came on in the second half and scored the goal that handed victory to Real Madrid. The Frenchman spoke to the media after the match: "It was a difficult match at a difficult ground and we're very happy with this result. What's most important is that we've got the three points away from home."

“We were up against a team that is very strong and played with a lot of intensity. The best thing is the three points and we're going to work hard to keep on improving. It's important to be top of the group and we're going to keep that going."

Personal performance
“For me the most important thing is the team's play, although for a forward it's also very important to score. Today I helped the team and my team-mates a lot. The most important thing is to win. The fans want me to score a lot of goals but we're going to work hard like today."

Ramos: "It wasn't one of our best games"
“It wasn't one of our best games, but the Champions League is difficult and every team makes life difficult for you, even if it doesn't have as big a name as others. We come away from tonight happy at picking up the three points."

We have to keep on going to hit our best levels.

“It isn't a problem of relaxation and nobody makes mistakes on purpose. We have to keep on working and improving," he explained on dead-ball situations.

Casillas and Ronaldo
“There are no words. Iker is a really great goalkeeper, the captain, and it doesn't surprise me that he makes great saves because he has made them every year. As for Cristiano, I don't think the comments from the stands affect him."

Chicharito: "I'm very happy about the opportunity"
“We won 1-2, we got the three points, which is what's important, and I'm happy about the opportunity that I've had. We know that there are never any easy games for this club and our opponents are always going to give their best. In the end, we won a difficult game. We never feared for the result and we looked for more goals."
