“We leave here happy because the fans were up for this game and showed us a lot of respect”, he said.
Carlo Ancelotti showed his satisfaction after the win at Ipurua. The manager highlighted the team's work rate during the post-match press conference: "The game was good from start to finish, we played with great concentration. I value the whole team's work. Eibar played their game, they are team that fights and are well organised defensively. They were effective on the counter. But Real Madrid were great in every aspect of the game: defensively, in attack, with dead ball situations…”

"There was a party atmosphere in this city for the match. We are happy. A lot of the crowd was against us, but in a respectful way. That is fine. We leave here happy because the fans were up for this game and showed us a lot of respect.”

Khedira
“He didn't have any niggles. He was a bit tired and I preferred the idea of using Isco because he recovered well after international duty.”

Isco
“He played a great game, positioning himself well defensively and displaying the same quality up front. He showed that he is perfectly capable of playing in that position.”

Will the team be defeated?
“Yeah, we know that day will come. Our aim is to continue our strong run. All the players are motivated and it is a very long season. We need to continue with the same attitude.”
