“Both the result and the way in which we played were very good", explained Varane.
Isco played in the win against Espanyol and offered his thoughts about the game after the final whistle: "We got into the game really quickly. At last we have our first win of the year and we are happy with the result".

"We closed down more today, we were good at going after the ball when we lost it, putting on pressure and we had a bit of luck in front of goal, that has been missing in the last few matches. It was a shame that Coentrão was sent off, that made us have to work a lot. It happened quickly. I couldn't really see it properly, both players went in but ultimately the referee has the final say".

The Copa del Rey
“It is important to get the winning feeling back. We are very confident about turning the Copa del Rey knockout tie around. It is going to be very difficult but I hope that we can manage it with the support of the fans". 

Varane: “We worked well and as a team to earn the victory”
“We wanted to get back to winning ways, that was the aim, and this is a very good result. We also earned the result well. It was difficult in the second half, when we had ten men, it was more complicated but we worked well and as a team to get the win. The team reacted well".

“Pepe and I had solid games, especially in terms of aerial play, and we have to continue on like that. I think that I can improve in offense and score goals".

The game against Atlético
“We can stage a comeback in the Copa del Rey knockout game with the support of the fans and lots of willpower. We are really motivated by seeing how people get excited and how they really want to win. As for the Ballon d'Or, we are all supporting Cristiano".
