    “The entire team's defensive work was very important", he added.
    Carlo Ancelotti spoke in the press room at the Santiago Bernabéu following his team's victory against Celta de Vigo, Real Madrid's eighteenth consecutive win: "The entire team's defensive work was very important. They worked well together and it was a good game because we played against a team that really push you, they are aggressive and play well".

    "We can assess the match positively because we played well, we were solid at the back, quick and did not take risks. There were two different matches really. We defended deeper in the first half and pushed higher up in the second. It wasn't easy, I like the way Celta play. They are a team that tries to play, to put pressure on you and attack. We played well, our good run continues and I hope it lasts for many more matches".

    Cristiano Ronaldo
    “It is a real advantage to have Cristiano playing for us. He is playing really well and he is peak physical condition, he is extraordinarily motivated at the moment".

    Benzema's Work
    “He played as he always does. His work and positioning were very important in helping us to alleviate pressure at the back, he helps the team to relieve that pressure well. With his positioning we were able to counter-attack well”.

    We are not happy with James' injury but we will have Isco and Khedira back.

    “Injuries are a problem that crop up now and again, but we have good replacements for him. I don't see any tiredness issues amongst the team and I didn't see any problems out there today. We played with a lot of intensity and speed in the first half and in the second half we controlled the game's rhythm and defended well". 

    Full-back
    “Ultimately, we went with a 4-4-2 formation with Marcelo and Carvajal in the centre. I can put Marcelo on the left side of midfield without any problems”.

    Illarra and Kroos
    “Illarra played really well in both areas of the game, that is to say, both going forward and defending, and he did so with real character. Kroos missed a few passes and we are not used to seeing that but he defended very well”.

    James' injury and Ronaldo's substitution
    “James has an injury to his calf muscle and we are going to assess it over the next few days. There is nothing wrong with Cristiano, he was just taken off so he could have a little rest".
